Collings OM1HMh All Mahogany Guitar with Herringbone ID-12196


Collings OM1HMh all Mahogany Guitar with Herringbone

We love having another all Mahogany OM1H from Collings. All mahogany guitars have a devout group of followers. The woody tone from a guitar with a Mahogany Top, Back & Sides is focused and yet articulate. Not all builders can handle the voicing of a Mahogany top. Collings does a great job with it and their version is also bold enough to not to be ignored. The Mahogany top provides for more sustain, slower attack, as you would expect from a heavier top. Lead players will appreciate the enhanced note definition and clarity, especially through the midrange frequencies.

This custom Mahogany OM1 is absolutely gorgeous. It is appointed with a custom Herringbone top purfling. The herringbone purfle is a classy visual feature on a Mahogany Top and we find it also adds to the tone and responsiveness of the instrument. By cutting into the outer edge of the soundboard and replacing with herringbone, you are making changes in how the top is isolated from the side of the guitar, how freely it moves and in what direction. In our experience the addition of the herringbone makes the guitar feel a bit more "opened up" right from the start.

Other special appointments are it has no Fingerboard Inlays and no Tongue Brace. It comes with the standard 1 11/16” Nut Width and 2 3/16” String Spacing. It has Nickel Waverly 4067 Tuners with Ebony Buttons. And of course, it comes with one of Collings Custom Handbuilt Cases - #OM680.

If you haven’t played an all mahogany guitar we invite you to try one. It gives you a whole different voice for your toolbox. This is a very sweet guitar – let us know how we can send it home to you.
