What can we say about the Collings OM1 that hasn't already been said? All of the reviews, everything on the message boards... it all holds true. This model is known for warm tone and wide versatility.

The 14-fret Orchestra Model body first rolled out in the late '20s, and in the following decade, it was quickly overshadowed by louder—and larger—designs such as dreadnoughts and jumbos. Years later, the OM is Collings' most popular body size and for good reason, too. OMs produce rich, balanced sound with immediate response, and their comfortable size makes them more manageable on the couch and in the living room.

We ordered this OM1 (#34801) with a Baked Sitka Spruce top and Honduran Mahogany back and sides. Baked Sitka is one of our favorite upgrades because it gives a new guitar the seasoned, broken-in richness of a well-loved vintage relic. As you put a baked (aka torrefied) top through the paces for years and years, it'll only sound better and more refined. In your hands, this OM1 produces balanced, woody Mahogany tone with subtlety and nuance you typically only find in a vintage guitar.

Collings is meticulous with the details, so we couldn't resist dressing up this OM1 with upgraded appointments. The Ebony fingerboard is adorned with Abalone 42-Style Snowflake inlays, and then the fingerboard and peghead have classy Tortoise binding. If you're going to add Snowflake bling, the binding is necessary. A touch of elegance to make this guitar look every bit as good as it sounds.

As for playability, the only customization is a 1-3/4" nut width. That extra sixteenth of an inch may not seem like much, but we find it gives you just enough room to stretch out. It's a great fit for a guitar like this, especially with the prewar-inspired Modified V neck profile.
