Collings OM3HA Guitar Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewoord with Herringbone ID-10454
Collings OM3HA Guitar Adirondack Spruce and Indian Rosewood with Herringbone
The OM size, nearly 80 years after it was designed, has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitarists who play on steel strings, yet flatpickers also find it appealing. The OM3 model has been a personal favorite for Pete Townsend since he first began using Collings guitars in 2000. This Collings OM3HA features a custom Adirondack Spruce Top.
The compact shape makes the OM3 extremely comfortable and easy to handle either onstage or sitting on the couch. The relatively shallow body, at just over 4 deep, results in balanced tone and immediate response.
The back and sides are Indian Rosewood, which produces a warm and lush.. yet clear and distinct tone.
Other appointments include a custom nut width of 1 3/4" for those who find the standard 1 11/16" a bit too wide for their playing style. Also the Tongue brace has also been left off of this guitar allowing for the top to resonate a bit more freely.
Not to be confused as just a cosmetic upgrade, the custom herringbone purfle on this guitar makes the Rosewood OM much warmer with increased low end, richer high-end and an instant broken-in feel in regards to responsiveness.
