The Collings OM1 Orchestra Model guitar comes from the Austin, Texas workshop founded by the late Bill Collings. As with everything else from that ship, it shows off consistently high quality and attention to detail.
The OM1 is an outstanding example of the consistently exceptional sounding mahogany guitars from Collings. This piece defines the Collings sound with a crisp attack, strong note fundamental, sweet midrange, and lovely overtone detail.
This custom-ordered has an upgraded 'Baked Sitka Spruce' top, using Collings' own torrefication process. This accelerates the 'breaking in' process of a guitar, for a warmer, drier, and more "vintage" tone right out of the factory. This OM1 is a superb-sounding vintage-styled instrument with unsurpassed craftsmanship and detail. A true heirloom instrument.
Includes Collings hardshell case.
