Collings OM1G German & Koa w/ Vintage-Style Case

Sold

Description

A gorgeous rare bird from Collings Guitars! This Collings-spec'd OM1 features beautiful Hawaiian Koa back & sides and a European Spruce top. Its voice is extremely lush, yet detailed and crisp (we'd expect nothing less). The combination of balance, power and that syrupy Koa sound that eminates from this guitar is truly intoxicating. Whether fingerpicked or flatpicked, this one's got it all ~ including a brand-spanking-new Collings-built OM case (the best-looking, most well-constructed replica of a 1930's style hard case that exists). Give us a call if you'd like an in-hand description.
