Collings OM1 Traditional Baked Sitka and Mahogany


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 Baked Sitka Spruce top provides an articulate top with a broken in feeling you get from the torrification process. Combine the baked sitka with mahogany and you get a brand new instrument that sounds like a a guitar that has been played for many years, with sweet highs and rounded note definition.
