The Collings CJ-35 guitar is a beautiful large bodied sunburst guitar built by Collings guitars.
The pre-war era of American flattop guitar making has come to be known as "golden" for a reason. Lauded for its short but brilliant periods of construction innovation, the years from 1930-1942 were filled with new instrument runs that featured bracing, fret access and body dimension changes that would define the features and sounds of the modern acoustic guitar. Emerging out of Collings' fascination with this era of guitar making history, Collings introduced the CJ35. Featuring a mahogany back and slope-shouldered body, this new variation of their CJ model incorporates a non-scalloped bracing configuration featuring three tone bars and a short 24 7/8" scale length. This new design provides the CJ35 with a beautiful balance of deep piano-like bass and powerful full-bodied highs, complimented by a focused dynamic range for exceptionally even note projection. As a result, the CJ35 is one of Collings' most versatile large bodied guitars, well suited to both fingerstyle and strumming playing techniques.
