Collings Custom OM1 A Cutaway Pete Huttlinger Signature Model NAMM 2017
An incredible guitarist and a personal friend to many here at the Collings shop, Pete Huttlinger has remained the first and only player to have a signature model Collings guitar. An initial run of these guitars were offered from 2011-2013, and we are excited to once again offer Pete’s favorite Collings guitar in honor of his memory.
This second run of limited edition models will feature a custom fly fishing inlay, reflecting his lifelong love of the sport. The first 15 will feature his handwritten signature on the label and a portion of the proceeds of each guitar will benefit the Pete Huttlinger Fund for Adult Congenital Cardiac Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

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.
Now, we would like to give something back. In his honor, we are proud to introduce the 2017 limited edition "Pete Huttlinger Signature OM1 A Cutaway model. Each of these special guitars will have a custom signed and numbered label.
