Collings OM1 Walnut G German Spruce and Walnut ID-6924
Collings OM1 Walnut G German Spruce and Walnut
The Collings OM1A is a classic Collings model, a shop favorite, and while it takes it's inspiration from the original models, Collings has subtly upgraded these with their signature style, and tone. 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.
This OM1G packs a serious punch, with killer volume and presence - easily acting as a dreadnought alternative. This OM1G has a superb balance and clarity, each note stands out in chordal accompaniment, as well as lead lines. The custom German Spruce top is a favorite tonewood here at Artisan due to it's versatility when played fingerstyle or flatpicked. German Spruce offers rich, complex overtones and regarding stiffness, falls in between Sitka and Adirondack. 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.
Custom appointments on this instrument are the 1 3/4" nut width combined with the beautiful Walnut back and sides.
Finished off with gorgeous tortoise style body binding, pickguard and a simple walnut backstrip, this guitar not only sounds fantastic, it provides a classic style and elegance unlike any other.
