Collings OM1 MH
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.
The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (at barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.
The topwood on this Collings OM1 Guitar is made from figured mahogany and is paired with figured mahogany back and sides as well. The gorgeous back and sides provide a flat EQ response, dry, crisp note character, and certainly definition of note.
When played chordally, Mahogany will allow you to hear each and every note in a complex chord, plus single note runs will be crystal clear. This instrument is a dream come true for those who prefer mahogany.
This Collings OM1 is appointed with Rosewood Binding, an ebony fretboard and bridge, finished off with Nickel Waverly tuners and beautiful Abalone Rosette.
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with no wear to mention.
Includes Hardshell Case.
