Founded in the late '70s by the late Bill Collings in Texas, Collings Guitars is the flagship of American manufacturing. While the brand now uses modern manufacturing processes, it makes no compromises: every element is carefully selected, and every detail is given special attention, so much so that the quality of the models produced systematically surpasses that of the most renowned Custom Shops.
We have the pleasure of being very close to Collings, and of being able to make a drastic selection within their production. But the quality of these guitars is such that it is challenging to find one that is not exceptional. This OM is one of a duo that we have selected for you. Its top is Adirondack (solid, of course). Don't hesitate to check out its sister, whose top is Sitka.
If you are looking for a bright and crystalline tone, with a large projection and high volume, a full and refined sound, you have found it. The Adirondack top of this guitar is one of the best pieces of wood we have seen on a guitar, and the unobtrusive finishes give it humility that the tones it delivers do not honor at all, as they are remarkably good. It's enough to make a lot of ears turn.
Collings' design of the bracing, bridge and body to neck connection allow for excellent vibration transfer and the very light varnish. However, it has the disadvantage of being "fragile", offers excellent clarity that is unveiled in the open mix of notes. Within a chord, each one resonates with considerable independence, and their mixture remains harmonious and homogeneous. Playing comfort is breathtaking because the neck has a profile that changes according to the position, allowing the hand to stay very relaxed, whatever the register or playing style.
The construction of this instrument is such that it awakens feelings, which it perfectly transcribes. The nuances of the playing and the attack are revealed and magnified by the guitar's intrinsic quality, which makes it almost impossible to pose it. We have to. Its owner will have a choice.
