‘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. Flatpickers find it very appealing with virtually unlimited headroom and power when you need it.
The compact shape makes the Collings OM2H equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch. The tone is focused and powerful, as are all Collings' guitars.
The topwood on this guitar is Engelmann Spruce, paired with rosewood back and sides. This is a classic combination that is highly versatile for many playing styles. Englemann shines when played fingerstyle but can also be flatpicked and can excel at both. It is ideal for flatpickers who don't require a stiff top wood, offering more volume and responsiveness from a lighter touch.
When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Engelmann is very lush and has a warm, rich low end. The highs are also crystal clear on a Collings, since only the highest grade Engelmann Spruce is chosen for their instruments. This guitar also features a cutaway, ensuring easy access to the upper frets. You really can't go wrong with this model!
