Collings OM1 SS Engelmann Spruce and Mahogany Short Scale
The Collings OM1 is a classic Collings model, a shop favorite, and while it takes it's inspiration from the original models, Collings has subtly upgraded these with their signature style, and tone. OM stands for Orchestra Model, but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Collings has transformed the standard OM, into a true "do it all" instrument.
Engelmann Spruce is softer than Sitka Spruce, offering a much more responsive tone with a lighter pick attack. Fingerstyle players especially love the way Engelmann responds to their particular style of playing, projecting ample volume with minimal attack.
With the custom short scale and no tongue brace offering, this guitar is virtually effortless to play and very hard to put down once you start playing.
Collings makes guitars with superb tone and aesthetics. The craftmanship is top notch and comes out in the tone, playability, and feel of their great instrument. This guitar is truly a great one to add to any players collection.
This guitar was ordered with a custom 1 3/4" nut width.
