The Collings OM1-ESS is based on the traditional OM – Orchestra Model body design, but with an Engelmann Spruce top and a 24.9 inch (632mm) scale length.

Collings builds some of the finest instruments available, and this Collings OM1-ESS, built during 2015 in Austin Texas is an excellent example of their work.
