The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Collings OM2H Orchestra Model Natural, 2012


Instrument Categories: , ,

The Collings OM2H is based on the venerable ‘Orchestra Model’ design, which is a bit bigger than the 000 size and has a longer scale length – 25.5 inches instead of 24.9. This model pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back and sides. The neck is Mahogany, as are the body blocks, and Ebony is used for the bridge and bound fingerboard and head plate. Inlay material is Abalone for the ‘snowflake’ position markers and Mother of Pearl for the headstock Collings logo. The tuners are Waverly open gear models.

This example dates to 2012 and was built in Austin Texas. It’s had an LR Baggs Anthem pickup system installed, with the controls tucked under the bass side of the soundhole. An endpin jack has been installed and the battery is in a bag stuck to the Mahogany neck block, unfortunately obscuring the serial number. This Collings OM2H is in very good, clean condition with only very slight wear to the finish and light to moderate fret wear, primarily in the low positions. This Collings OM2H Orchestra Model is, like every other Collings we’ve seen, extremely well built and finished. Top quality woods and materials are used throughout.

The OM design is based on the 12-fret neck, 1928 Martin 000 body size, which was modified to allow the 14 fret neck that banjo players needed for higher position chording. The upper bouts were ‘flattened’ to accommodate this neck. The 14 fret neck was so successful that it has almost completely displaced the 12-fret neck on steel string guitars. It’s only in the last few years that builders have been offering 12 fret necks again.

The original Collings branded hard shell case is included.
