Inspired by the 1940s Gibson J-45s, the Collings CJ-45 TA is now the latest member of their Traditional Series, made with mahogany and Adirondack spruce. And they “simply tweak the original; the all-new Collings CJ-45 T is a fully re-imagined instrument that offers a distinct tonal variation when compared to our CJ and CJ-35 models.” This redesign includes new bracing based on the original Gibson designs, and Collings’ latest T-Series neck design with a new version of the CJ-45 neck profile.
