Collings OM2H ECW Steel String Guitar, 2010

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Based on the classic Orchestra Model, the Collings OM2H ECW adds to the stock rosewood bodied, herringbone bound OM2H, with an Engelmann Spruce top and a cutaway.

The Orchestra Model is closely related to the  OOO , with the primary differences being in the scale length; the OOO is typically 24.9 inches while the OM is 25.5.

This OM2H was a custom order, and the original build sheet shows that the purchaser specified an Engelmann Spruce top, on a cutaway Indian Rosewood body. The top has a traditional Herringbone purfling inside the binding. The neck and body blocks are Honduran Mahogany, and the bridge and unbound fingerboard are Ebony. The head plate is also Rosewood. The open gear tuners are by Waverly.  There is no pickup, and no installed electronics.  

Built at the Collings shop in Austin, Texas during 2010,  this OM2H ECW is in very good condition and has recently been serviced at The Twelfth Fret Repair Shop. It is a Collings, so the fit, finish and materials selection are top quality and the guitar sounds great.

The original Colliongs hard shell case is included.

Here is the builder on the Collings OM2H ECW model:

” ‘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 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.”
