"Shallow Body" CB Vintage J in Engelmann Spruce & Figured Mahogany

Created with the full-sized (16") body width of the CB Vintage J and the shallower (4-1/8") body depth of the CB AuditoriOM, the "Shallow Body" Vintage J offers surprising volume as well a quicker response and a more "immediate" tone. The decreased size of the air chamber coupled with the full-sized sound board yields a mellow yet powerful tone in a guitar of extraordinary miking capabilities.
