Collings OM1 Maple A SB Adirondack Spruce and Maple with Full Body Sunburst ID-7750


Collings OM1 Maple A SB Adirondack Spruce and Maple with Full Body Sunburst

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 Maple back and sides is a stiff and stable tone wood with a loud and bright voice. Highly reflective, Maple balances a tight crisp high end with warm lows.

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

Finished off with gorgeous tortoise body, fretboard and peghead binding, Black /White wood nitrate strip rosette, Black / White wood purfling, 1-style walnut backstrip, and custom full body sunburst, this guitar not only sounds fantastic, it provides a classic style and elegance unlike any other.
