Collings OM1 Traditional w/ Baked Sitka Spruce and Mahogany 2016

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.

The custom top wood on this Collings OM1 Guitar is 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. When Baked, Sitka opens up and gets some richer tonal properties. 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 is an earlier Collings that has Bill Collings' Signature on the inside label.

This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ very minor fret wear, some light scratches on the pickguard and some very light scratches on the headstock.
