Collings OM1 SB 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 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. Have you listened to this recording? It is such a sweet OM. Hardshell Case is Included.
