Collings OM2H A Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Varnish Finish No Tongue Brace and Adirondack Braces ID-8824
Collings OM2H A Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Varnish Finish No Tongue Brace and Adirondack Braces
The OM body size has been favored by fingerstyle players for years, but has made its mark in flatpicking and strumming with its unique clarity and projection. Living up to the pedigree and namesake Collings has established, this OM2HA is no exception and is a true delight to play.
This Collings OM2HA is built with an Adirondack Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, a solid Mahogany neck, and Ebony fingerboard and bridge. It boasts the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end.
The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, yet the folks at Collings build with volume in mind. This OM2HA no doubt represents the defined aspects of the OM; with a crisp, clear tone across the entire spectrum.
The Adirondack Spruce top makes for an OM sized guitar that handles flatpicking very well, boasting virtually unlimited headroom and power. It is extremely comfortable to hold and play, making it nearly impossible to put down, and very little tone is sacrificed front the OM size.
To add to the already wonderful Adirondack, a Varnish finish has been applied. This increases the tonality and the projective qualities of the Adirondack in a very impressive way. All you have to do is play a standard Adirondack top next to a Varish finish and the differences are very apparent.
The set of Indian Rosewood used on the back and sides of this guitar keep things very warm with tone that is rich, full, and powerful.
This OM2H is custom appointed with a 1 3/4" nut width which gives you plenty of room for complex chord shapes, a Cutthrough Saddle, Adirondack Braces and the absence of a Tongue Brace. Additional standard appointments include the Herringbone top purfling, ivoroid body binding and nickel Waverly turners.
