(NEW) Collings continues to make the best guitars anywhere, built with a clarity of tone and purpose, made to last a lifetime. Their Orchestra Model is now their best selling acoustic, finally toppling the mighty dreadnought in recent years. It's easy to see why, an argument could be made that the OM is one of the most versatile and comfortable steel strings every designed.
This lovely example is fresh from Austin, made with a beautiful tight-grained Sitka spruce top and very pretty Indian rosewood back and sides. We had this one built with a cutaway, so the player has access to the entire fingerboard. It is also short 24 7/8" scale, which lowers the string tension a bit, resulting in great playability and a bit warmer tone, vs the normal long scale. 1 3/4" nut with 2 3/16" string spacing at the saddle. 2-style appointments include three-ring rosette, ivoroid body binding, diamond/square fingerboard markers and a volute at the back of the peghead. Ebony fingerboard, bridge and pins. Figured ebony peghead veneer, nickel Waverly tuners. Includes original TKL hard case.
AMW Price: $5,550 (Online checkout, Collings 2021 MAP price)
