The Collings OM body is one of the most popular and versatile shapes available, meeting the needs of both finger-style and flat picking players. The German Spruce top on this 2008 instrument offers great overtones and the Indian Rosewood back and sides complete the characteristic Collings sound. The expertly done Herringbone around the top adds that touch of class to an otherwise beautiful instrument. This one has been lovingly played and shows some wear on the pickguard and below it on the top. We would still score this as in Very Good condition.
