Collings OM2HG Sunburst German Spruce with Adirondack Bracing ID-6477
Collings OM2HG Sunburst German Spruce with Adirondack Bracing
80 years after the orchestra model 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 with custom German Spruce top, flatpickers also find it very appealing with virtually unlimited headroom, complex overtones, and lots of power when you need it. The compact shape makes the Collings OM2H 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. The tone is focused and powerful, as are all Collings' guitars.
This custom OM2H features a German Spruce top-wood. German Spruce, a special appointment on this guitar, provides a rich, complex tone and is perfect for many players who play fingerstyle as well as flatpick. German Spruce is stiffer than Sitka, providing more headroom and power, yet more flexible than Adirondack so that it responds well to a lighter attack. This allows the guitar to be played fingerstyle while maintaining a high level of comfort, without sacrificing the invaluable headroom offered by a stiffer spruce.
Accompaniments like the Adirondack bracing make this guitar that much more menacing. Adirondack Bracing offers a more efficient transfer of string energy to the top, since Adirondack is much stiffer than the standard Sitka braces. This allows for a more responsive and powerful sound board. The 1 11/16" standard nut width has been upgraded to a 1 3/4" nut for easier fingering of chord shapes.
