Collings OM2H Steel String Guitar

Collings OM2H Steel String Guitar

OM’ stands for “Orchestra Model,” but 80 years after this 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 flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. The compact body shape makes the Collings OM 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 Collings D2H is an interpretation of the classic Dreadnought body steel string guitar and effectively illustrates just how good that design can sound. Built in Austin, Texas the D2H features a Sitka Spruce top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Honduran Mahogany neck and Ebony fingerboard and bridge. We’ve received three new Collings guitars, this D2H among them. It is a stunning guitar. Though new and unplayed, it has incredible tonal complexity with excellent balance across the spectrum.

Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

The Bourgeois Slope D is based on the large dreadnought body size, but with rounded or ‘Sloped’ upper bouts. The shape is similar to the original “Extra Large” dreadnought guitars made by C F Martin for the Ditson company from 1916 to 1930. Gibson also used the slope-shoulder form on many of their instruments, including the iconic J-45. However, during the 1960’s many of those models shifted to square shoulders to reflect market demand.
