Collings OM1 A Adirondack and Mahogany
The Collings OM1A is a classic Collings model, a shop favorite, and while it takes it's inspiration from the original models, Collings has subtly upgraded these with their signature style, and tone.
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.
This OM1A packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. This OM1A has a superb balance and clarity, each note stands out in chordal accompaniment, as well as lead lines.
The Adirondack top adds a tremendous amount of headroom, crisp trebles, and gut-punching mids. It takes to a flatpick beautifully, but sings with bare fingers as well. You know the feeling when you're holding that guitar? - this is that guitar. The custom Adirondack bracing adds to the great tone and projection to this instrument.
The Mahogany back and sides are perfect for players who find rosewood too boomy. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.
If your friends are playing dreadnoughts & you need to be heard - This one is "all business"!
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition with only some light pick scratches on the pickguard. These are very minimal and hard to detect with the eye.
Includes Hardshell Case.
