This incredible Orchestra Model Acoustic Guitar is an OM-42 SS SB from Collings, in a magnificent set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides and Adirondack Spruce for the top. 
This legendary combination of woods makes for an iconic sounding instrument, and with Collings passion for capturing lush vintage tones with updated modern appointments, this proves a fantastic and deeply versatile OM, not to mention a stunning one to boot.  
The short scale length gives this guitar a warmth and sweetness to its tone, that doesn't detract from the overall balance and immediate response of the instrument. 
The scale length also makes for an effortless player, with a slinkier feel to the vintage 'V' profiled neck. Whether you're fingerpicking or digging in with a flatpick, this guitar absolutely sings with gorgeous overtones and harmonic complexities in abundance.
The guitar is in superb condition and comes in its original Hardshell Case.
