Based on Gibson's old sixteen inch wide J-185, the Collings "Small Jumbo" is a delightful large fingerstyle guitar. Here at Gryphon, we particularly enjoy the tonal balance provided by maple back and spruce top. This deluxe model has the optional "broken glass" inlay, designed and executed by Tom Ellis, a longtime friend of the Collings crew.
