Collings OM2HG-DD German Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Deep Body ID-5710
Collings OM2HG-DD German Spruce and Indian Rosewood Deep Body
Here is another fantastic example of a Collings OM2H with an upgraded German Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. Extra features are what make this particular model stand out from the rest. This guitar features a thicker, deep body, measuring 4 5/8" deep. The deeper body provides rich low tones not often heard on OM size guitars, providing an incredibly balanced sound with more low end than typically found on the OM body size.
German Spruce is another fine upgrade and is the featured topwood on this instrument. German is a stiffer spruce than Sitka, but not as stiff as Adirondack, making it the perfect compromise for many players. You get more complexity and overtones from German than Sitka or Adirondack. German Spruce is much more responsive than Adirondack, making it significantly better suited for bare fingerstyle playing. The German top give you a more open, less compressed sound right from the start. This is the OM that dreadnought players have been looking for! 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.
