Named after the well-loved Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas, the Collings Winfield is a highly modified version of their standard dreadnought that features options commonly requested by flatpicking specialists.
The combination of the stiff Adirondack spruce top with enlarged soundhole, supported by a top bracing pattern based on the earliest 14-fret dreadnoughts, make the CW a bluegrass powerhouse. Everything about this model is designed to provide plenty of headroom and projection for aggressive playing, but not at the expense of good tone.
Dry, punchy, and gives you everything you want and more from a dreadnought. This CW will change all your preconceived notions about the Dreadnought.
