This gorgeous OM-1AV is Collings take on the legendary pre-war orchestra model acoustic guitar.
Made up of Mahogany for the back and sides with a stunning Adirondack Spruce top, this guitar captures the feel and tone of its vintage counterparts while maintaining all the benefits of a modern built high end acoustic.
The tone in question is incredibly balanced, with a dry punchiness to it so inherent in the makeup of a truly great vintage instrument. A small detail much loved on a personal level is the longer bridge saddle, which really engages the top when you dig in, regardless of whether you're playing with your fingers or a flatpick.
When it comes to playability, the guitar takes another chance to broadcast its outstanding character with a very comfortable, notably vintage profile and superb fretting across the board.
The guitar is in superb condition and comes in its original Hardcase.
