Collings SJ Ziricote/Blue Spruce/NAMM Instrument
NAMM 2021 axe alert!
This Collings SJ Ziricote in Blue Spruce is a stunner. It’s a Collings – so no surprise there.
The SJ is our version of what is commonly called a small Jumbo. Although the 16 inch lower bout is slightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides are almost as deep, the tight curve at the waist creates a very different sound chamber. SJs, typically have a more pronounced midrange response when compared to a dreadnought. 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.
This particular guitar was for the 2021 Winter NAMM Show. We were lucky enough to acquire this showpiece for Eddies’s Guitars.
