Collings OM1 German Short-Scale

Sold. Please inquire for next available!


Fingerstyle guitar players seeking that Collings clarity and depth should look no farther than this OM1. It's a customized "light build" for fingerpicking responsiveness, made from Mahogany back & sides and a German Spruce top. Also spec'd with a pyramid bridge and a short scale length, this guitar guitar plays like a dream and weighs nothing at all. The voice is woody, rich and detailed - a perfect guitar for a singer who fingerpicks! Priced with hard case from Collings.
