Collings OM1 Acoustic Guitar
Though Colling's relatively shallow body depth of four inches limit its volume production in a un-mic setting, it makes up for lack of depth with excellent responsiveness and consistency. Overseen by luthier Bill Collins, Collings has set the bar high for small factory production, and the OM1 certainly meets the high criteria. While other similarly priced instruments are specialized for a specific environment, this instrument provides a homogeneous and dependable sound across multiple genres.
The higher pitches are clear and bright without pulling too far away from the lower tones. With specs like a mortise and tenon hybrid neck joint, ebony bridge pins, and scalloped bracing, this guitar is built to last. The basic features can be highly customized with buyers selecting what spruce they'd like the top made out of, which bracing is utilized, nut width, and more. Certain aesthetic decisions can also create a thoroughly unique instrument, like the Gold Waverly tuners option and various peg head inlay designs.
