Collings Guitars OM1 SS Custom 2015


The Collings OM1 is a classic Collings model, a shop favorite, and while it takes its inspiration from the original models, Collings has subtly upgraded these with their signature style, and tone. This custom made Collings Guitars OM1 SS Custom 2015 is a built to order instrument, with custom appointments that enrich the qualities of this OM overall!

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. With a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides, this guitar has a clear, focused tone that is rich in lows without overpowering the balanced high end.

The Sitka Spruce top on this instrument responds well to fingerstyle and moderate flatpicking, with round notes and lush chords up and down the neck. The Collings OM1 models are always some of the most versatile instruments in the shop, and this one is no different.... it will be right at home in jam circles, on stage, or in the studio, regardless the style of music.

This Collings OM1 Custom was built with a shorter scale(24 7/8"), was braced without a tongue brace, is simply appointed with Tortoise style body binding, an ebony fretboard and headstock overlay, finished off with Nickel Waverly tuners. The 1 11/16" standard nut width has been also upgraded to a 1 3/4" nut for easier fingering of chord shapes. Not only is this guitar acoustically wonderful, this Collings has also been upgraded with a K&K Pure Mini pickup system so you can take this Collings right to the stage!

This Pre-Owned Collings Guitars OM1 SS Custom 2015 is in Good Condition w/ light dings & scratches throughout the entire body, neck, and headstock. There are also some water spots near the neck heel(see photos) and a sinking crease on the top bass side of the guitar.
