Collings City Limits Jazz Blonde (2017)



As always, the ever-elusive Collings City Limits Jazz does not disappoint! The CL Jazz may well be the guitar market's most playable, sweetest-sounding hollow body archtop. It's perfectly suited to a jazz guitarist's needs, whether played with bare fingers or a heavy flatpick. The carved mahogany body and European Spruce top ensure maximum tonal clarity and color without sacrificing the direct warmth discerning players demand for both chord melody and single-note soloing. This 2017 model is virtually unplayed, and remains in near-mint condition. Priced with its original hard case!
