We can never recommend Collings' Traditional series guitars highly enough, especially when one comes in at a steal of a price! The Collings "Traditional" appointment package reflects a desire to get back to the great building techniques of the 1930's. With the OM1, they've turned good old Mahogany and Sitka into a very responsive guitar, with a warm, loose-feeling low end and delightful volume and punch. If you're an OM picker looking for that perfect do-it-all guitar, come check this one out. Aside from a couple of very minor dings in the finish and some wear on the pickguard, this pre-owned guitar is in great condition. Priced with its original handmade Collings vintage-style hard case.
