Collings Guitars OM1 Deep Body SS Engelmann & Mahogany - 14054


Collings OM1 Deep Body SS

'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. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the custom deep body on this instrument results in balanced tone and an immediate response similar to a dreadnought without the bellowing size.

Built custom with a short scale (24 7/8") players will find that it is incredibly easy to play, with stretching jazz chords coming off easier than on a standard 25.5" scale. The deep body option pushes the top farther from the back resulting in more room for sound wave vibration in the body; resulting in deeper and powerful lows out of a small body instrument. Sonically, Engelmann spruce has a mature tone, and yields a slightly richer midrange than Sitka, which makes a guitar sound a bit older. This spruce coupled with mahogany gives a punchy, dry, yet articulate sounding instrument tailored to the player's specific liking!
