1st Place National Flatpick Champion Jason Shaw with his new Collings CWMHA presented by Jim Baggett on behalf of Collings

Our own Jim Baggett presented the prizes to the top three 2010 National Flatpick Championship winners at last week’s Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield – the first place winner, Jason Shaw, had his pick of three very cool acoustics and took home the Collings CWMHA – a custom made beauty. Check out the wheat headstock inlay on this!  This was the third time Jason won the title, an honor once held only by Steve Kaufman.
