Collings OM1AC Adirondack Spruce and Mahogany with Cutaway

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. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added the OM1 is often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets. The compact shape makes the Collings OM1AC equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.

This particular model is custom designed to the exact specifications of Pete Huttlinger's OM1AC. Perfectly suiting Pete's style of playing, it features a custom Adirondack Red Spruce top, bringing punch and clarity; mahogany sides and back, bringing brightness and note definition; a custom 1 3/4 nut width and a custom cutaway for easier access to the lower frets.

Pete Huttlinger used his OM1AC on the album, The Santa Rita Connection - and it is featured on the cover. If you are looking for that award winning fingerstyle sound, this is the guitar for you. To see Pete play this guitar, click here for a Collings showcase.
