Serial Number 2071

This Collings Clarence White style 18 was completed in November of 1995. It is has an Ebony peghead overlay, Waverly tuners, 1 3/4" nut width, bone nut and saddle, ebony pins with MOP dots and a volute on the rear of the peghead. There is no back strip on this guitar. The volute and the herringbone are not standard on CW-18's, so this is an unusual instrument.

    There are several unusual aspects important to this guitar. It has herringbone purfling on the top with TS binding on the top and rear of the body. The TS binding on the fretboard (with an Ivoroid strip between the TS binding and ebony fretboard. The TS binding on the fretboard looks like butterscotch! It's very beautiful. According to John Holman, this is the #13 Mahogany CW made. This guitar originally  had the Popsicle brace installed, but the owner had it removed. I had the opportunity to play this wonderful guitar at Camp Kaufman this year and it was a joy to play. The basses were full and very powerful while the trebles were very clear, yet very full. It' a great guitar!
