2008 Collings OM2H Cutaway with Original Case


General Description:

These days, Collings guitars need little introduction, having firmly established themselves as some of the finest guitars ever made. With fairly steady growth over the years, Collings has a current flat top production of approximately 1300 instruments a year, but the company has only produced around 30,000 flat tops to date since Bill Collings began building in 1973. Though pricing has escalated with the passage of time and demand, we still maintain that Collings guitars are an outstanding value, as they competitive with any top tier guitar available.

Like the Martin OM28 upon which it is based, the Collings OM2H is a tremendously versatile and expressive guitar! The mating of Sitka spruce and Indian rosewood is, of course, a classic tonewood pairing, yielding a wonderful mixture of brilliance, clarity, and headroom, with a rich palate of darker tone colors and harmonic complexity. While certainly capable of being a rhythm instrument, the OM excels in melodic applications, where single notes can sing out, or perhaps shimmer against one another in an arpeggiated sequence that will linger with captivating degrees of sustain. The dense and firm note foundation one find’s in Collings guitars imparts a resolute presence to their voicing, thereby allowing a controlled player to manipulate and accentuate the vowel shape and color of a note with a surprising degree of precision.

This particular OM2HC certainly exhibits all of these qualities, but it offers the benefit of a more exercised, played-in response that can only develop with some time and use. For players who utilizes upper registers, or for those who capo in higher positions, the cutaway is certainly an attractive feature. This guitar is also gig-ready to boot, with a professionally installed L.R. Baggs Element Active system. Indeed, this OM2HC would be a difficult value to ignore for any discerning player seeking a well-rounded, high quality guitar!


Condition:

This OM is fairly clean cosmetically, with the back and sides showing little finish wear—although, we do not some impressions on the butt and the sides of the upper and lower bout from prolonged contact with the case lining. Most significantly, the top has a repaired crack on the treble side that extends from the bridge to the butt. This crack has been internally cleated in three places, and has been sealed and touched up; however, as is almost always the case, the finish touch up is evident adjacent to the crack. There is also one good top ding on the lower bout that has been touched up. VERY GOOD Condition
