Collings Custom OM1G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Pre-Owned 2012 ID-12402


2012 Collings OM1G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood

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.

This OM1G packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. This OM1G has a superb balance and clarity, each note stands out in chordal accompaniment, as well as lead lines. The custom German Spruce top is a favorite tonewood here at Artisan due to it's versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked. German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack. It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well. You know the feeling when you're holding that guitar? - this is that guitar.

The Indian Rosewood brings the guitar balance and warmth, and when coupled with German Spruce brings the guitar strong fundamentals, quick response, warm round trebles, and with the German top can be strummed or finger-picked with ease and the custom 1 3/4" nut width, enables finger pickers to easily perform complex chord shapes.

Finished off with OM1 Style appointments including the gorgeous tortoise style body binding, short pattern dot fretboard inlays, Ebony Peghead Veneer, Honduran Mahogany neck w/ no volute, pickguard and a simple walnut backstrip, this guitar not only sounds fantastic, it provides a classic style and elegance unlike any other.

This 2012 Collings Custom OM1 G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood is in excellent + condition which means it has a few barely visible surface scratches, very minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
