Collings OM2H T
‘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 great headroom and power when you need it.
The Traditional or "T" Series guitars reflect Collings' return to their guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the body, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection.
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 Sitka Spruce, paired with rosewood back and sides. Sitka Spruce is very open and responsive. It's noticeably warm and very 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, grained ivoroid body binding, herringbone purfling and a tortise style pickguard.
This Pre-Owned Guitar is in Excellent Condition w/ some light scratches on the pickguard and back.
