Collings OM2H G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Sunburst ID-8796
Collings OM2H G German Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Sunburst
With a custom German Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, this guitar has a clear, focused tone that is rich in lows with a strong, pleasing high end. German Spruce is one of our favorite woods for versatility. It is suited to both fingerstyle and flat picking.
German Spruce offers quick string attack, and boosted mid range & treble registers (nothing muddy here). Stiffer than Sitka Spruce, yet not as stiff as Adirondack, German Spruce is an excellent combination over top Indian Rosewood.
Indian Rosewood back and sides keeps the tone rich and full with round notes and lush chords up and down the neck.
Other custom appointments include a Sunburst finish and Adirondack Braces. Adi Braces stiffen the top up a bit more, offering you more head room. Listen to the recording and make your own comparisons.
‘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 also find it very appealing as the OM body shape allows for a more balanced tonal fingerprint than a Dreadnought would.
The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle, whether onstage or sitting on the couch. The tone is focused and powerful, as are all Collings' guitars.
All Collings instruments come with a deluxe, custom fit hard-shell case.
