(NEW) For versatility, projection and clarity, it's hard to beat the OM2H from Collings. In recent years, it has surpassed the dreadnought in popularity, with many finding the size and shape of an Orchestra Model to be extremely comfortable. This particular instrument has some features that definitely set it apart: being a Traditional build, it has a lighter overall construction, smaller maple bridge plate, forward shifted scalloped Sitka braces, no tongue brace, rolled fingerboard edges and a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, glossy. Baked (torrefied) Sitka spruce was chosen for the top, giving it a quick response and a warmer, more played in sound. The back and sides are Indian rosewood.
Specs include 1 3/4" nut, 2 5/16" string spacing at the cut-through saddle, and full 25 1/2" scale length. Appointments include special Traditional series herringbone top trim, ivoroid body binding, zipper back strip and diamond/square fretboard inlays. The tuners are nickel Waverly. Includes original TKL hard case.
AMW Price: $7,175 (Online checkout, Collings 2023 MAP price)
