This absolutely delightful Orchestra Model from Collings features a great deal of custom appointments and subtle changes that really do make for a very special guitar indeed.
Featuring a magnificent set of Flame Maple for the back, sides and neck with a German Spruce top finished in a very fetching Sunburst Finish throughout, this short scale beauty has a sound unlike any other.
The combination of Flame Maple and a shorter scale length bring out a power in the tone of the guitar that defines its sonic identity. With crisp, clear trebles and a punchy midrange, the power in the low end is noteworthy but certainly part of a balanced and full sound, with excellent projection to complete the character of this versatile OM.
The short scale length also benefits the playability, providing a slinkier feel to the strings and giving the player a huge dynamic range to play with, which coupled with the fast and comfortable profile of the Flame Maple neck and superb fretwork on the Ebony board, makes for an effortless experience in coaxing out luscious, rich and engaging tones.
The guitar is in excellent condition and comes in its original Hardshell Case.
