Pre-Owned 2008 Collings CW with Adirondack and Mahogany
The Collings Winfield is a reissue of the famous Collings Clarence White model. Clarence White lead the way in presenting the acoustic guitar as a lead instrument in bluegrass music.
It features an enlarged soundhole, bringing more projection, improving the listening experience for both player and audience; and the absence of the tongue brace - which helps bring even more resonance and volume and also Adirondack Braces which are thinner and lighter making the guitar much more resonant and open.
Collings describes the Winfield on their website as: "a highly modified version of our 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 Collings 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."
Full rich basses are complemented by clear, singing trebles with great clarity and sustain. The enlarged soundhole removes some of the "woofy" basses that so often plague larger instruments, especially in the recording process.
The enlargement allows you to tailor the sound by placing a mic a bit closer to the soundhole with much less proximity effect, resulting in a more immediate and balanced sound, often heard on Tony Rice recordings. Chordal runs are clear and concise, individual notes are distinct, and single note solos are loud and defined.
The Classic Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany combo makes more a truly superb sounding guitar. The added looks and playability really set this guitar over the top.
This Pre-Owned 2008 Collings CW with Adirondack and Mahogany is in Great shape with only some very light surface scratches on the pickguard. This guitar was well looked after and taken care of.
Includes Hardshell Case.
