The Collings OM2H-T Traditional Acoustic Guitar is part of the Traditional Series, also known as the "T-Series," which represents Bill Collings' return to his guitar-making roots. These guitars offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. The OM2H-T is meticulously crafted with attention to detail and finished with a very thin, all nitrocellulose lacquer finish, resulting in exceptional dynamics and responsiveness.

The bracing and tone woods of the OM2H-T are carefully selected and adjusted for weight and thickness, creating a unique voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange. The guitar retains a quick attack and strong projection, making it suitable for a variety of playing styles. The Traditional Series guitars deliver a vintage-inspired tone while incorporating Collings' renowned craftsmanship and attention to detail.

The OM2H-T features a Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood back and sides, offering a balanced and rich tonal palette. The neck is made of Honduran mahogany, providing stability and a comfortable playing experience. The guitar is adorned with ivoroid body binding with small brown herringbone purfling, adding a touch of elegance to its appearance.

Other features of the OM2H-T include an ebony belly-style bridge with 2 5/16" spacing, an ebony fingerboard with gold mother-of-pearl short diamond and square inlays, and nickel Waverly tuners with a 16:1 ratio. The guitar is equipped with a bone nut and saddle, offering excellent sustain and resonance. It comes with a custom wood rosette, a tortoise pickguard, and D'Addario EJ-16 strings.

The Collings OM2H-T Traditional Acoustic Guitar is finished with a high gloss extra-thin nitrocellulose lacquer on both the body and neck, allowing the wood to resonate freely and enhancing the overall tonal characteristics. The guitar comes with a Collings Traditional Handcrafted Case, specially designed and built in-house to provide superior protection and complement the instrument's aesthetic.

We endeavour to show the actual instrument in stock whenever possible, but the guitar in stock may differ slightly from the one shown on our website. Materials used can look different from guitar to guitar, including timber grain and colour, parts colours and finishing. If an instrument is a one-of-a-kind or preowned guitar, the picture will always be of the actual guitar in stock, but production models may have slight variations to the picture shown.

If you're after a particular look, feel free to email us at or send us a message through our chat service to request photos of the actual guitar in stock. We are more than happy to send through pictures of all in-stock guitars, to make your choice easier.

Please note that returns will not be accepted for variations in timber grain /  colouring, finish variations and parts colouring, unless there is a fault with the instrument. If you have any questions at all regarding an instrument's appearance, just drop us a line - we're always happy to send photos, and if we have more than one instrument in stock you'll be able to choose the exact guitar that you receive!
