Description

The New Collings "Traditional" appointment package reflects a desire to get back to the great building techniques of the 1930's. This OM1 Traditional is the entry point to the line. Plain old Mahogany and Sitka? Sounds pretty darn wonderful to us. It's a very responsive guitar, with that warm, loose-feeling low end (again, a noticeable departure from the standard Collings lineup). This guitar has a great bloom to its voice, and makes a great choice for an OM picker looking to pick up a -T series guitar without breaking the bank. Priced with new, handmade Collings vintage-style hard case.
