Collings OM3 German Spruce & Maple Sunburst (2013)

Out of Stock

We sold this great-sounding Collings OM3 in German Spruce and flamed Maple when it was new; and it's just come back for consignment. The tone is woody, powerful and direct with an intoxicating combination of airy overtones and focused snap (and we're loving the dryness it has with D'addario Nickel Bronze strings). It's a tremendous and versatile fingerstyle guitar, but the stiff German Spruce top takes a flatpick with ease and pumps out single note melodies that would fill a room with richness. The shortened scale length only makes this one harder to put down. Still in excellent condition. Priced with original TKL hard case. No trades, please.

TME instructor, Raymond Gonzalez, demos this guitar over at the video tab.
