Collings TME 40th Anniversary CJ Brazilian Adirondack Varnish (2008)

Out of Stock


It's always great to see one of our 40th Anniversary Collings guitars back in the shop! This Brazilian Rosewood CJ features the varnish finish, snakewood fretboard / bridge / binding package and Doug Unger inlay motif that was standard on all the instruments in the series. The craftsmanship and tonewood pairing is sheer perfection; and even considering the mesmerizing good looks, it's always a revelation to play one of these. The sound is to die for, with the limitless, reverby quality and stunning articulation we've come to expect from a Brazilian Rosewood Collings guitar. Aftermarket fossilized walrus ivory bridge pins and strap button. This one is priced with a canary yellow Collings-branded Calton Case.
