Collings OM1 SB Select Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Western Sunburst ID-7655


Collings OM1 SB Select Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Western Sunburst

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 allows plenty of room for complex chord shapes. The standard Tortoise-style body binding and custom fretboard and peghead bindings are complimented perfectly by the gorgeous custom Western Shaded top, providing a very classy finishing touch. Additionally, the Adirondack Spruce top-bracing lends to an enhanced clarity and volume potential.

We would invite you to compare the audio sample of our Colings OM1SB Sitka Spruce and Mahogany with Western Sunburst, which is equipped with the standard Sitka Spruce bracing, and make your own impressions of the tonal variance.
