Collings OM2H Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Here, Collings is staying consistent with an exceptionally well built and finished guitar, using top quality woods and an obsessive attention to detail.

As with the OM2H-T, The Collings OM2H pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back, sides and headplate, Honduran Mahogany neck with Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge.

We ordered this guitar with the slightly wider than standard 1.75 inch (44.45mm) nut width, as found on the Traditional models. This 2mm wider fingerboard is a bit easier for complex chord shapes and fingerstyle.

Here is Collings on the OM2H guitar:

“‘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 body 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.”

The original Collings case is included.
