The Collings OM1 Cutaway has always been a popular guitar here at TME: it offers unparalleled tone per dollar in a cutaway OM. Things have really ratcheted up a notch with the addition of a torrefied top to this one! It still sounds like a Collings -- clear, articulate and forward -- but the woodiness of tone and the "round" sound it has is a marked change from a non-torrefied guitar. Very loud, very light and very resonant, this is an unbeatable guitar for anyone looking for a small guitar with a cutaway. Priced with Collings vintage style hard case.
