Collings OM1 Traditional
This new Collings Traditional is the kind of guitar that will fulfill any guitar player's fantasy for the rest of his or her life. The bottom end is warm and bold with gorgeous mid range! Of coarse it plays amazing! The detail in the woodwork and finish is unmatched. A truly inspiring guitar of all playing levels.
OM1 TThe Traditional or "T" Series guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection. Each Traditional series guitar will come with a handmade lightweight Collings case designed and built in the Collings shop. The pairing of these new Traditional guitars and cases makes for a combination of old world quality and aesthetic that is unprecedented among instruments available today.
