Pre Owned 2014 Collings CW A Adirondack and Indian Rosewood
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. It also features a ebony bridge with 2 1/4 string spacing and a cut-through saddle.
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.
Collings describes the Winfield on their website as: "a highly modified version of our standard dreadnought that features options commonly requested by flatpicking specialists."
Everything about this model is designed to provide plenty of headroom and projection for aggressive playing, but not at the expense of good tone. 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 guitar a bluegrass powerhouse.
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.
This Pre Owned 2014 Collings CW A Adirondack and Indian Rosewood is in excellent + condition with only a few very minor surface scratches. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
