Collings Custom OM1 Cutaway Pete Huttlinger Signature Model
An incredible guitarist and a personal friend to many at the Collings shop, Pete Huttlinger was the first player to have a signature model Collings guitar. An initial run of these guitars were offered from 2011-2013, and Collings has since started to once again offer Pete’s favorite Collings guitar in honor of his memory.
This very beautiful run of OM Guitars are hard to get your hands on and even harder to put down. If you're not already sold on these beautiful guitars; a portion of the proceeds of each guitar will benefit the Pete Huttlinger Fund for Adult Congenital Cardiac Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Pete Huttlinger is recognized around the world as one of the greatest fingerstyle guitar players of our time. His amazing ability to play melody, harmony, rhythm and everything in between has long captivated fans and fellow musicians alike. Pete bought his first Collings in March of 1997.
Over the years, he has continually supported and promoted Collings instruments and, in the process, has become a great friend. For decades, his beautiful playing and warm spirit have uplifted many hearts.
The Pete Huttlinger model is an OM1 Cutaway with Pete's signature elegantly inlaid in the 12th fret and a custom "Fly Fishing" Inlay on the Fretboard. This guitar also features an adirondack spruce top, and 1 3/4" Nut Width.
Audiences and fans around the world know him best for - his fantastic sense of humor and mind-blowing chops all combined to make a full-on, entertaining 90 minutes of laughter and jaw-dropping guitar parts.
This Collings OM1A is unbelievably well balanced, punchy, dry, and has very directed sustain and overtones that will fit into any style of music. The cutaway provides great reach for when playing complicated chords up high or ripping a solo or lead part. The adirondack spruce top provides unlimited volume headroom without breaking up or losing tone. This is a career guitar that belongs in everyone's collection!
