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.”

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.

Gibson Keb Mo Steel String Guitar Sunburst 2014

Gibson Keb Mo Steel String Guitar Sunburst 2014

The Gibson Keb Mo model uses the L-body, with a 12-fret neck design that puts the bridge close to the vibrating center of the Adirondack Red Spruce top. The back, sides and neck are Mahogany, a pairing that provides a crisp, sparkling clarity and good note separation. The fingerboard and bridge are East Indian Rosewood. The body is bound with a creme ivoroid and herringbone purfling. Herringbone was a very common guitar decoration right up until World War II, but it came from Germany and when US stocks ran out, they couldn’t be replenished. Most subsequent instruments used plainer, multi-layer purfling. The tuning gears are Grover Sta-Tite models.
