Collings OM1 A Guitar VN Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood

The Collings OM1 A 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 OM1 A packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. This OM1 A 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 Indian Rosewood back and sides provide and very complex and rich tone. Indian Rosewood is more scooped in the middle, yielding less midrange bloom than mahogany. rosewood is a versatile tonewood, which has contributed to its popularity. One can fingerpick it, strum it and flatpick it. It’s very consistent!!

Accompaniments like the Adirondack bracing make this guitar that much more menacing. Adirondack Bracing offers a more efficient transfer of string energy to the top, since Adirondack is much stiffer than the standard Sitka braces. This allows for a more responsive and powerful sound board.

The custom 1 3/4" nut width which allows our fingerpicking friends to play effortlessly and bend chords easily.
