Hi...This is my Collings SJ guitar. From a dealer the price would be £5,000. Collings build quality is second to none...It is in mint condition and a stunning guitar. Stored in its case. It is the Rosewood version, most seem to be in Maple. A great all rounder that is hard to beat for sound I'm open to reasonable offers  ... Any questions please let me know  It has the nice rich bass of a dreadnought with the sweetness and clarity of an OM. The build quality and finish is exceptional. Then again, it's a Collings, what else would you expect? Here's what Collings have to say about the SJ: Although the 16 inch lower bout is slightly wider than a dreadnought, and the sides almost as deep, the tight curve at the waist creates in a very 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. Specifications: Top Sitka spruce Back & Sides E.
