1999 Collins CJ-41 Sunburst

What a majestic guitar this is, it really has everything one could want in a modern acoustic that captures the past. It really does feel and sound good, it also looks killer with its lush vintage sunburst finish, abalone purfling, faux tortoise guard, and pearl fleur-de-lis inlays set in a triple bound ebony finger board. It has a Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides and obviously gets its influence from the pre war Gibson SJ’s. The action is set perfectly on the virtually unmarked frets with a 25 1/2″ scale length with a 43.5mm nut. The overall guitar is in very good lightly used condition but it does have a tight top crack which travels south from the middle of the bridge to the rim which we have had repaired and cleated so will pose no problem moving forward. The guitar has a KK bridge plate  pickup fitted with the output through the endpin as per usual. The acoustic voice of the guitar is very pleasing with a deep warm bass with an even response across the strings, its influences instantly recognisable. They tell me that guitars made whilst Bill Collings was alive and at the helm are highly prized, and if you consider he only made 25 guitars in 1987 with his first employee only arriving in 1989 these earlier guitars must truly be hands on hand made instruments of great quality. When you consider what this guitar would cost you new today, it can surely only be viewed as an excellent buy

Comes with its original case.
