Collings OM1HMh VN
We always love getting in all Mahogany OMs from Collings. All mahogany guitars have a devout group of followers. The woody tone from a guitar with a Mahogany Top, Back & Sides is focused and yet articulate. Not all builders can handle the voicing of a Mahogany top. Collings does a great job with it and their version is also bold enough to not to be ignored. The Mahogany top provides for more sustain, slower attack, as you would expect from a heavier top. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.
This custom Mahogany OM1 is absolutely gorgeous. It is appointed with a B/W/B/W top purfling, tortoise body binding & a beautiful custom abalone Rosette. Other special appointments added include a vintage now neck, nickel waverly tuners w/ ebony buttons, adirondack bracing, and a 1 3/4" nut width.
The Vintage Now neck is coupled with a 1 3/4" nut and 2 5/16" string spacing at the saddle. Collings Vintage Now neck is the perfect compromise for many players that think a modern neck is too flat in profile, yet the typical neck on a 40's style instrument is too thick.
If you haven’t played an all mahogany guitar we invite you to try one. It gives you a whole different voice for your toolbox.
