Collings OM1A Adirondack Traditional (2016)

Sold

If you've been waiting for a deal on a Collings OM1A Traditional -- pounce before this one is gone! This is the first OM1A-T we had in the shop, and its original owner has let it go after realizing he's not going to take time away from his beloved dreadnoughts. As with most of the early Traditional models from Collings, this guitar has a fairly beefy neck, eerily reminiscent of a '37 Martin carve. The sound is simply phenomenal for such a new guitar -- bold and wide open, with a thunderous and focused low end and crackling midrange. A superb guitar whether flat picked or fingerpicked. Overall excellent condition, with no significant playwear to report. Priced with its original Collings vintage-style hard case.

Video sample reflects a different guitar with identical specs.
