Collings Acoustic Guitars - OM1 A Traditional T Series Pre-Order


Contact us to pre-order this instrument. Item ships when available.

This Collings OM1AT Traditional is return to just that, traditional building techniques and materials combined with Bill Collings' exquisite attention to detail. This new series is highlighted by traditional style bracing and tone woods which are adjusted, weighed and voiced to produce particularly warm, rounded highs while maintaining a full, rich low end. The extra thin Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, applied without a polyvinyl sealer, makes for a lively, expressive top that has the feel of an old vintage guitar. The Traditional Series tone is further enhanced by the use of Animal Protein glue, which can dry harder making every joint of this OM2HA that much more resonate and powerful.

This particular Traditional OM1AT features a gorgeous Adirondack Spruce top that produces tons of volume with plenty of head room. Combined with a classic Mahogany back and sides making this is one full and resonate sounding OM. The neck features a Custom Traditional profile as Collings starts with a Vintage Now neck profile and their expert craftsman hand-carve it into a custom shape with an extremely comfortable rounded fretboard edge.

It also has an Ebony belly-style bridge, a bone cut-through saddle with 2 5/16" string spacing, Traditional Sitka pre-war scalloped bracing, and many high-end appointments: Maple and rosewood purlfing, 1-style walnut backstrip, gold mother-of-pearl microdot inlays, and a tortoise-style pick guard.

Here at Mass Street Music, through our owner Jim Baggett, we have had the great privilege of getting to collaborate with Bill Collings and his team of skilled craftsman on these new models. We couldn't be more excited to have been a part of this new Traditional Series. This Collings OM2HA MR Traditional also features the custom built Traditional case, and includes a free setup from our luthiers.
