Collings OM1ESS Steel String Guitar Natural

Collings OM1ESS Steel String Guitar Natural

The Collings OM1ESS is based on the traditional OM – Orchestra Model body design, but with an Engelmann Spruce top and a 24.9 inch (632mm) scale length. The OM body has been favored by performing fingerstylists since its introduction by Martin in 1930 as a 14-fret adaptation of the 12-fret OOO models. Collings builds some of the finest instruments available, and this Collings OM1ESS, built during 2019 in Austin Texas is an excellent example of their work.

❌SOLD❌  Martin 000-42 Standard Series Steel String Guitar Natural

This is a beautiful Martin 000-42 Standard Series, a spectacular sounding instrument with just the right amount of inlay. The 000 body size was introduced in 1902 with a 12-fret, 24.9 inch scale length neck  and in 1934 gained the ‘new’ 14-fret neck.   The OM or Orchestra Model is based on this guitar, but with a 14-fret, 25.4 inch scale length neck. The ’42’ in the name refers to the Style 42 materials and inlay set, introduced in 1858, and discontinued in 1943.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D-35 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Natural, 1973

❌SOLD❌ Martin D-35 Dreadnought Steel String Guitar Natural, 1973

The Martin D-35 Dreadnought first appeared in 1965, partly as a way to use the remaining stock of Brazilian Rosewood sections that were too small for a two-piece back. Drawing from the very successful D bodied Dreadnought, the Martin D-35 was placed between the venerable D-28 and more expensively decorated D-41 and D-45 models.
