Layaway

Based on the legendary 1935 Martin D-28 that was revived by Clarence White, and eventually made its way to Tony Rice, this Collings Clarence White 28 is a flatpickers dream. Crafted with the finest Adirondack Spruce top, and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, this CW has the presence, sustain, and resonance one would expect from a Collings dread. The enlarged sound hole, unique to the historical Martin that served as inspiration for the Collings CW model, gives this CW a wide open, raw sound, with a pleasing and musical mid-range warmth. With it’s herringbone purfling, tongue brace omitting pre-war scalloped x-bracing, Dalmatian pickguard, and ivoroid body binding, this Collings Clarence White 28 is the perfect blend of modern style with vintage tone.
