SOLD – (NEW) Collings OM1 MC Deep Body, Baked Sitka Top, Mountain Cedar Back/Sides – SOLD

(NEW) We’re very excited to show off this NBD (Never Been Done) Collings OM!  This instrument has a torrefied or “baked” Sitka spruce top, and the torrefaction process helps to give the instrument more of a vintage flavor, a more played-in sound right out of the box.   Indeed, it’s hard to imagine a richer sounding brand new OM1, with the Deep Body option adding sustain and bass response to the voice.

The Mountain Cedar back and sides are, tonally, very much in the mahogany ballpark, with a similar stiffness-to-weight ratio and a very fundamental tone… though we believe we hear a certain musical “chime” in guitars with this back and side wood.  It has undeniably beautiful figuring, a very three-dimensional tight flame.

Cosmetics include handsome rope purfling, tortoise binding and simple dot inlays on the fingerboard.  The nut is 1 3/4″ and the string spacing at the saddle 2 3/16″.

A distinctive and *gorgeous* sounding Orchestra Model, another clear winner from our friends in Austin TX!
