Collings OM2H Guitar Baked Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood ID-10476
Collings OM2H Baked Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood
‘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 Baked Sitka Spruce, paired with rosewood back and sides. When torrefied, Sitka Spruce becomes very open and responsive. It's noticeably warmer and more-open sounding, with the woodiness, snap and depth of a well played-in guitar. A joy to play, and a fingerpicker's..or flatpicker's dream guitar.
When combined with rosewood on the back and sides, Sitka is very lush and has a warm, rich low end. The highs are also crystal clear on a Collings, since only the highest grade Sitka Spruce is chosen for their instruments.
Simple and elegant appointments on this instrument include, pre-war scalloped bracing, No Tongue brace, traditional diamond and square fingerboard inlays, grained ivoroid body binding, herringbone purfling with matching 2-style backstrip and a tortise style pickguard. This guitar also features a custom nut width of 1 23/32".
Hardshell Case Included.
