Collings OM1A Cutaway with Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany ID - 5048
Collings OM1A Cutaway
Collings comes through with another strong contending small body! As a comfortable transition between bodies, this Orchestra Model has the ability to play with large dreadnoughts with ease. This Collings OM1A Cutaway, synonymous with Pete Huttlinger and his agile right hand, packs a punch with a wide-grained Adirondack top and Mahogany back and sides. In Collings style, the high gloss finish is perfection and an added bonus to a smooth, quick neck.
Whether it be for couch playing or a live stage, this is an easy guitar to play anywhere, in any style. Thumb-picking and flat-picking allow this guitar to respond with a bright, crisp attack while over the soundhole a bottom comes through that is focused for this size body. The custom cutaway option allows for easy access above the fourteenth fret, without sacrificing volume or tone. A simple accompaniment of black-white purfling and tortoise shell binding make this guitar subtly different, as well as a comfortable 1 3/4" nut width.
