Collings OM1 Custom w/ Baked Sitka & Koa

'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. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.

 Bright with a vintage feel, this OM1 custom breaks the mold with a combination of baked sitka spruce & hawaiian koa! The baked sitka spruce top sings like a guitar that has been broken in over many years of playing, combined with the koa back & sides then you get a punchy, bright and sweet sounding instrument. Right out of the gate Koa can be bright, but over years of playing and getting it to "open up", koa gets warm & sweet with overtones and power.

Other Appointments include: a tortoise bound body, an abalone rosette, tortoise pickguard, an exotic ebony veneer, a beautiful sunburst finish, and nickel waverly tuners.
