If ever there were an OM that could compete with the mighty dreadnought for acoustic presence in a bluegrass jam, the Collings OM1A-Traditional would be it. Mahogany's mid-range focus and warmth is well-suited to the slighter build of the OM, while the upgraded Adirondack spruce top - prized for its stiffness and bite compared to Sitka - gives this model a major boost of dynamic range. In short, this is an OM that you can seriously dig into, that still has the responsiveness and sensitivity needed for fingerpicking.

A redesigned bracing system, even thinner nitro finish, and "Traditional" neck profile are just some of the developments that bring the Collings' Traditional Series guitars a step closer to capturing the sound of the highly sought after pre-war Martins.
