Collings OM2H G Deep Body


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… flatpickers also find it very appealing as the OM body shape allows for a more balanced tonal fingerprint than a Dreadnought would.

With a custom German Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, this guitar has a clear, focused tone that is rich in lows with a strong, pleasing high end. German Spruce is a favorite tonewood here at Artisan due to it's versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked.

German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack. The gorgeous Indian Rosewood back and sides keeps the tone rich and full with round notes and lush chords up and down the neck.

The Custom Deep Body option gives this OM a whole new sound that one would not have thought possible with a smaller body OM. When the Top of a guitar is pushed farther away from the back of the guitar (hence the deeper body) you gain more room for a bigger low end. The Deep Body OM models are some of our favorites here at Artisan because you can get the power of a dreadnought (low and high end) with the comfortability of an OM shape!
