The CB "Model J"

The CB "Model J" guitar is Chris' reinterpretation of the classic "round-shouldered" Dreadnought guitar of the 1930s. The original round-shouldered Dreadnoughts were wonderful guitars, possessed of a somewhat warmer tone than the classic Dreadnought style, and are highly prized by modern Blues and fingerstyle players. The deep, rich bass offered by the larger body cavity of the round-shouldered Dreadnought makes for a very well-balanced sound, with clear, strong treble and rich overtones.

Chris voices the hand-scalloped X-bracing of each CB Model J to maximize the tonal potential of the round-shouldered body while adding power and sustain not normally found in round-shouldered guitars. Coupled with the increased string tension offered by Chris' use of the classic Dreadnought scale length (rather than the shorter scale length of the original round-shouldered Dreadnoughts) and the body depth and taper of the classic Dreadnought, this allows the Model J to realize the volume, power, and clarity of tone found in the classic Dreadnought while maintaining the balance, bass response, and warm tone quality of the round-shouldered body style. Careful selection of tone woods gives the round-shouldered Dreadnought its ultimate tonal realization in the CB Model J. The result is an instrument of sweetest tone and bone-crushing power, perfect for any style from Bluegrass to Country to Blues to the subtlest of fingerstyle Jazz; a guitar of power, tone, and uniquely elegant beauty.
