This Collings All Mahogany, All Burst, Haircut Headstock CJ is a guitar with something to say, and multiple means of expressing itself. Starting with the dark, smoky burst finish, you feel pulled towards it as soon as you enter the room. Taking it off the wall, the Mahogany box sings low and sweet, making you want to listen ever more closely as you get to know one another.But that soft, smooth voice is only one half of the coin: dig in and strum and this guitar sounds like it's ready to tear down a drag strip at full throttle. Seriously, it seems like there is no end to how loud this thing can get!Formerly owned by Jim Lauderdale, there are videos of Jim playing this guitar all over the web. It's a killer instrument, and one that deserves to be played. Will the next one to try it be you?
