Collings OM1 SB Select Sitka Spruce and Mahogany

The Collings OM1 is a classic Collings model and a shop favorite. 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.

This OM1 packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. The OM1 has a superb balance and clarity, each note stands out.

The Sitka 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.

This Collings OM1 features a couple custom appointments such as a 1 3/4" nut width which gives you plenty of room for complex chord shapes. The standard Tortoise-style binding on the body is complimented by the gorgeous custom Western Shaded top perfectly, providing a very classy finishing touch. Additionally, the removal of the tongue brace and the addition of Adirondack bracing makes 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.
