Collings OM1 Traditional 2017

The new Traditional or "T" Series of dreadnought and OM guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Prompted by the development of the depression-era inspired Waterloo guitars, Bill had an idea for a new series of Collings guitars that would possess a strong fundamental tonal response characteristic of vintage guitars from the 1930s era.

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. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (at barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.

The topwood on this Collings OM1 Guitar is made from Baked Sitka Spruce and has been paired with mahogany back and sides. This is a classic combination that is highly versatile for many playing styles. Sitka can be played fingerstyle or with a flatpick and can excel at both. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require the stiffness of Adirondack, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch. Mahogany is dry and punchy with alot of mid range clarity and response! This guitar is a one stop shop of an instrument! With versatility for the stage or micing it up in the studio!

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ some light scratches on the pickguard.
