Collings Custom OM2 SR Sitka Spruce and Sacha Rosewood Pre-Owned 2014 ID-11466


Collings OM2 SR Sitka Spruce and Sacha Rosewood

This guitar is a recording engineer’s dream! All of this is wrapped up in a guitar that you will feel comfortable sitting on the couch playing for hours, recording on music row, or playing on any stage. Simply, yet elegantly appointed, this is a true family heirloom for generations to come.

The OM body size has been favored by fingerstyle players for years, but has made its mark in flatpicking and strumming with its unique clarity and projection. The deeper body provides rich low tones not often heard on OM size guitars, providing an incredibly balanced sound. Living up to the pedigree and namesake Collings has established, this Collings OM2 is no exception and is a true delight to play.

This OM boasts the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, yet the folks at Collings build with volume in mind. This Collings OM2H A no doubt represents the defined aspects of the OM; with a crisp, clear tone across the entire spectrum.

In this special OM SR, Sitka Spruce is matched with the Sacha Rosewood for obvious reasons. Sitka provides an even stiffness across and along the grain, making it one of the go-to soundboards for flat-pickers. It has the highest cross-sectional strength and across-the-grain stiffness of all spruce species. The Sitka Spruce top makes for an OM sized guitar that, boast great headroom and power while still being dynamic and subtle. It is extremely comfortable to hold and play, making it nearly impossible to put down, and very little tone is sacrificed front the OM size.

The scientific name for Sacha Rosewood or "Higuerilla" is Micandra spruceana. Sacha Rosewood is an excellent wood for acoustic guitar backs and sides. It's appearance is very reminiscent of traditional old world Madagascar Rosewood with rich colors ranging from light coffee to mid orange brown with dark brown stripes. The sapwood is strong and stable with a light-beige color, so there is no jarring contrast, and it looks fantastic on the sides of the instrument. When book matched, Sacha Rosewood presents a strong and colorful linear figure for backboards.

Tonally, Sacha Rosewood reminds us of Palo Escrito (the Rosewood from Mexico known for making great sounding instruments), Madagascar Rosewood with a bold glassy tap tone that belies the low weight of the wood. While the overall tonal palette settles in tones midway between mahogany and rosewood, it delivers an immensely satisfying richer overtones akin to Brazilian Rosewood. When coupled with a Spruce top, such as Sitka, Sacha Rosewood brings the guitar strong fundamentals, a lightning quick response, clear trebles, well defined mid-range, and a solid bass register - or in other words, simply wild (*) !!

This instrument is in Excellent + Conditon with only some light surface scratches on the pickguard. This guitar was well looked after and taken care of.
