The Orchestra Model guitar shape continues to be one of the most popular and versatile body sizes in the world. Many of the finest guitar players choose an OM as their guitar of choice and for good reason. It's small/comfortable body shape and full sound definitely has a serious charming appeal. This Collings OM2H Custom is everything you want in an OM with a few custom features that help make this body shape even more versatile than it already is!
Right out the gate, this OM is constructed with a Baked Sitka Spruce top over Indian Rosewood back and sides. When baked, Sitka Spruce opens up, making it not sound as stiff or bright in the high end, and provides you with a warmer and rounded mid range tone right out of the case. Another custom feature that adds depth to the sound is the Deep Body option. This custom feature takes the OM, and gives it the body depth of a dreadnought, which in turn increases volume output and wide frequency range; ultimately giving you an OM with dreadnought power. Now who doesn't want that?
Other features include: a custom 1 3/4" nut width, an exotic stained ebony veneer, a rosewood neck stain, and nickel Waverly tuners.
