At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an Authorized Dealer of Collings Guitars. There’s do denying that Collings builds some of the most impressive flat-top acoustic guitars on the market. Their consistency and commitment to quality is unmatched as every guitar in their line is a cut above the competition. Every now and then, though, we come across a Collings guitar that is truly exceptional. This breath-taking CJ42 (serial number 21712) is one the finest guitars ever shipped to us from Highway 290 in Austin. It boasts an Adirondack top and beautifully flamed Maple back and sides. The style-42 appointments are stunning. We love the precise snowflake inlays on the ebony fingerboard, and the fit of the Abalone top border is impeccable. We couldn’t resist ordering this one with a full-body sunburst to push the overall aesthetic to a different level. As for tone, this CJ42 will not disappoint. Its voice is big and strong with rich Maple overtones. We love the balance of the CJ model, and the response and dynamics of this one are particularly impressive. This is a phenomenal guitar from a builder that just can’t stop produced high-caliber instruments. Please call or e-mail for an in-hand description.
