Comments Opening a box from Collings is always a treat. You know that what’s inside is going to be an immaculately finished, incredible sounding instrument built with an obsessive attention to detail.This Collings OM1 E SS Englemann Short Scale doesn’t disappoint in any of those areas. It is about as perfectly built as a guitar can be, with a full, even, rich yet brilliant sound – and this is before it’s been played in at all. The shorter scale makes it a bit more comfortable and warms up the tone a bit. Read about the OM1 E SS at the Collings Website here
