Collings OM2HABRA Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood ID-6270
Collings OM2HABRA Adirondack Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood
It’s been more than several years since Collings has built Brazilian guitars for their broader group of authorized dealers. We are pleased to announce a very limited run of new Brazilian model Collings – possibly their last. It is our privilege to introduce this limited run of Brazilian models with our Collings OM2HA, featuring an Adirondack Red Spruce sound board, Adirondack bracing, and Brazi1lian Rosewood back & sides. The Collings Crew continues to amaze us with their challenge of building a small bodied guitar yet with such a powerful voice.
Brazilian Rosewood combines the attributes of the two most common back and side woods, Indian Rosewood, and Mahogany. Brazilian has the ability to provide lushness of Indian Rosewood, while never sacrificing the individual note clarity you get from Mahogany. This guitar is a recording engineer’s dream! All of this is wrapped up in a guitar that you will feel comfortable sitting on the couch playing for hours, recording on music row, or playing on any stage. Simply, yet elegantly appointed, this is a true family heirloom for generations to come.
The OM body size has been favored by fingerstyle players for years, but has made its mark in flatpicking and strumming with its unique clarity and projection. Living up to the pedigree and namesake Collings has established, this Collings OM2HA is no exception and is a true delight to play.
This OM2HA boasts the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, yet the folks at Collings build with volume in mind. This Collings OM2HA no doubt represents the defined aspects of the OM; with a crisp, clear tone across the entire spectrum. The Adirondack Spruce top makes for an OM sized guitar that handles flatpicking very well, boasting virtually unlimited headroom and power. It is extremely comfortable to hold and play, making it nearly impossible to put down, and very little tone is sacrificed front the OM size.
