Collings SJ BaaaG SB (new) The SJ style is one of our true favorites from Collings and this one is no exception. With extremely rare quarter sawn “aaa” old growth Brazilian rosewood back and sides and a lovely German spruce top set off with a custom sunburst, this guitar has both warmth and power. The bound ebony fingerboard has a 1 11/16” nut and a traditional “42” style diamonds and snowflake inlay. The bound headstock has a Brazilian overlay with custom open back, gold plated Waverly tuners. Super comfortable neck and great action. OHSC
