Behind the Bench: Demo of Four Collings OM1 Guitars

We're always working to keep a wide selection of guitars around for you to check out, play and get a feel for what could be your next lifetime guitar! While we'd love for everyone to be able to come by and enjoy Downtown Lawrence, we're doing our best to make the online experience the next best thing.

Enter out our Behind the Bench demo of four Collings OM1 guitars, each featuring a unique attribute to their construction. Whether it's the lively bounce of Sitka, the boldness of Adirondack or the mellow vibe of Mahogany there is a Collings OM1 that will fit just about any style.

Be sure to leave a comment below to let us know what differences you hear in the OMs! When you're done, head on over to our Youtube Channel for all of our instrument demos including electrics, acoustics, banjos and mandolins!

Amazing how similar they all sound, and they all sound great. I had played a friend’s years ago and no other guitar I’ve played since has compared. It’s also interesting that the cutaway sounds just as full as the others.

That surprised us as well Jon! There certainly are subtle differences, but it speaks to the consistency of Collings.
