Collings OM1 A Traditional


The Collings Traditional Series or "T-Series” guitars represent an exciting vintage-inspired tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound, designed and crafted to showcase the most desirable characteristics present in coveted pre-war instruments. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection.

Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all-nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the body, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. The T Series models also feature a new Traditional neck profile based on Collings' popular Vintage Now neck, but with a slightly more tapered carve and rolled fingerboard edges.

The Custom Adirondack Spruce top provides virtually unlimited headroom, perfect for a heavy hand or anyone looking to acoustically cut through a band or mix! Combined with this beautiful set of mahogany, this OM comes off sounding punchy, and dry, but with a commanding presence! The traditional build from Collings comes out the gate with a wide open sound due to the lighter build that creates more resonance throughout the guitar! Usually guitars take years to break in and get that warm "vintage" sound, but Collings has found the way to get a brand new guitar to sound warm and open right out of the case! This guitar is a stunner and will quickly become your favorite axe!
