This Collings - OM1A JL Traditional - Julian Lage Signature is in a word, special. A signature model based on a collaboration between lauded guitarist Julian Lage and the late Bill Collings, this OM1A JL reaches a new level of vintage-inspired design at Collings. Featuring a distinct, focused, open tone - even more so than the usual Traditional models - this OM1A JL is resonate and dynamic with a clear fundamental across the fingerboard.

A part of the growing new Traditional series which 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, hand rubbed to a Satin appearance, is applied without a polyvinyl sealer, making 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 OM1A JL that much more resonate and powerful.

This particular Traditional OM1A JL 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 resonant sounding OM. The neck features a Custom JL profile which is based of scans and measurement of Julian's 1939 Martin 000-18 and features an extremely comfortable rounded fretboard edge.

This guitar truly sounds unlike an Collings guitar we've had through the shop and marks a very exciting expansion of the Traditional series. Includes the custom built Traditional case, and a free setup from our luthiers.
