Get Rich And Warm Sound With Premium Tonewoods - Collings OM2H Orchestra Model 14-Fret Acoustic Guitar With A Baked Sitka Spruce Top And Cocobolo Back and Sides
'OM' stands for "Orchestra Model," but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.
From the starting point of the wood's density and rigidity, each acoustic guitar top is hand selected, evaluated, and carved to it's own unique thickness, maximizing the tonal potential of each top. Each Collings acoustic guitar, from their most affordable to the highest end, are built with the finest tonewoods available. Each wood is acquired, acclimated and hand selected by master luthiers at their shop who pick each component with the whole tonality of the end instrument in mind. A combination of PLEK leveling and hand fret dressing insures consistently excellent playability and a silky fret feel. Premium Waverly open gear tuners offer exceptional tuning stability and smooth reliable operation. A pairing of Sitka spruce with a Cocobolo back and sides creates a guitar with a crisp yet warm articulation and a beautiful tonal balance.
