Collings D-42 & OM-42 Madagascar Adirondack Traditional

Sold

This matched D-42 and OM-42 from Collings Guitars of Austin, TX, represent the first special project we've undertaken with them since the introduction of their "Traditional" series of guitars. When asked what to do with two exceptionally lightweight matched sets of Madagascar Rosewood, the choice seemed clear! As visually striking as these guitars turned out to be, it's all about the sound; and there isn't a TME staffer who didn't gasp at the sheer power and depth of sound they generated. Though both of these guitars sold upon arrival, we invite you to contact us if you're interested in special offerings from Collings & The Music Emporium. As with all -T series guitars, these beauties went to their new homes in a Collings handmade vintage-style hard case.
