Description

When Lance McCollum passed away, there were still several guitars on his bench that were unfinished, and this Jumbo, shiny and new and ready to be played, was the last guitar that Lance finished. Naturally, it sounds superb. McCollum paired a set of Malaysian Blackwood (which looks and sounds just like Brazilian) with Italian Spruce for the body, adorned the soundhole with an eliptical Imbuya-Burl-and-Abalone rosette, and trimmed everything with Snakewood bindings and a subtle sunburst across the neck.

This Jumbo excels as a strummer, with its powerful projection, but performs beautifully for fingerstyle arrangements in dropped tunings where the big body can really churn out those rich lower frequencies. The voice is balanced, but expressive, and the low E string (regardless of what tuning you're in) has a kind of depth that leaps out at the slightest provocation. For the guitarist seeking a Jumbo with lots of thunder, but a delicate side too, this McCollum will do nicely.

We're selling this Jumbo for Lance's widow, so the money's for a good cause. Plus, the guitar is a resonant rock-n-roller that can offer huge, haunting sustain to your tunes!
 
Another great jumbo with evenly balanced trebles, mids, and basses.
