Collings OM1 Orchestra Model Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Collings OM1 Orchestra Model guitar comes from the Austin, Texas workshop founded by late Bill Collings.  As with everything else from that ship, it shows off consistently high quality and attention to detail.

The OM1 is an outstanding example of the consistently exceptional sounding mahogany guitars from Collings. This piece defines the Collings sound with a crisp attack, strong note fundamental, sweet midrange and lovely overtone detail.

The 1.6875 inch (42.86mm) bone nut and soft V neck profile are a perfect fit for the fingerstyle player and the classic looking tortoise body binding subtly frames the gorgeous looking wood sets. If you are looking for a sweet little fingerstyle guitar or a light to medium strummer you can’t go wrong with this guitar!!

The Collings OM1 is sold with its original Collings-branded arched top hard shell case.

Note:  Prices for new Collings guitars are listed in US dollars.

More From The Builder on The Collings OM1:

“‘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 flat  pickers 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 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.”
