The 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. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players looking for a comfortable smaller body size than the larger dreadnought models.
This OM is one built for the player who wants the compact comfort-ability of an Orchestra model mixed with a popular tonewood combination vintage style thicker neck!
The Sitka, Indian Rosewood combination is tried and true, with sparkling highs, boomy lows, and intricate velocity control. This Collings might just be your favorite so far!
