What To Know
Gently used OM3 Deep Body with Figured Walnut back & sides and a reclaimed Alaskan "Blue" Spruce top just into the shop! If you've followed the Blue Spruce project Collings began about a year ago, you may remember seeing some social media posts about the original OM3 Blue Spruce -- with identical specs to this guitar. It sold before we listed it, and we immediately had it rebuilt after hearing its rich sound (and if we're being honest, after seeing it too).
This tonewood combination is one of those magical success stories: we'd never have dreamt it up, but does it ever work wonders. Walnut provides power and clarity akin to mahogany on steroids, with better roundness in the low end; and the old "Blue" Spruce top provides warmth akin to a 50-year old guitar. Endlessly versatile -- there's no style of playing or music you can throw at this guitar that it doesn't love. Overall condition is used-but-excellent; and the price includes its original TKL hard case.
Please note: used instruments are, well, used. We pride ourselves on thoroughly vetting, and carefully photographing, each pre-owned instrument we sell, but many of them carry subtle signs of handling that can escape even the most discerning eye. If you have questions about the condition of this instrument, we invite you to call us for an in-hand description. We're here to help!
