Description

The Collings CL Jazz is one of the modern era's most sought-after jazz guitars -- and for good reason. The CL Jazz's fully carved, thin-body construction yields an array of tonal possibilities as dazzling as its sublime good looks. Whether comped, strummed, fingerpicked or played with a heavy jazz pick, the CL Jazz is sure to delight even the most discerning jazz players with its inimitable combination or warmth and clarity. These guitars are made in very limited numbers, and this one was almost two years in build -- we're lucky to have it in the shop! Priced with hard case by Ameritage.
