Collings OM2HA Guitar with Adirondack Spruce top, Adirondack Bracing, No Tongue Brace and Indian Rosewood back and sides

On the surface of this beautiful Collings OM 2 with herringbone, it might appear to be another 28 style interpretation, but it is not. A closer look at the fully slotted saddle and peep at the bracing might tell you this guitar is a sleeper. Strum gently and expect a warm and chocolate-like sound, but dig and discover a sound cannon with stunning overtones.

Designed with a potent combination of an Adirondack Spruce top, Adirondack Bracing and lacking a tongue brace, this guitar has an aggressive attack without any possibility of braking up. Like it's deadnought cousin, expect a comfortable neck to play, but with more focus and comfort for the right shoulder. Many players are transitioning to OMs for their go-to guitars. If this is the case, you won't miss your dreadnought with this badboy.

'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. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is
added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.
