Collings SJ

From Collings Guitars:

The SJ is our version of what is commonly called a small Jumbo. Although the 16 inch lower bout isslightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides almost as deep, the tight curve at the waist creates in avery different sound chamber. SJs, especially examples in maple, typically have a more pronounced

midrange response when compared to a dreadnought, making them ideal candidates for a rounded cutaway. Players looking for the bass and overall volume of a large guitar, but with lots of treble clarity and midrange crunch, often find just what they need in the curvaceous SJ.
