Collings Guitars of Austin , TX are among the most finely crafted acoustic instruments available today.
Bill Collings builds instruments based on traditional American (Martin) designs. These designs have become true classics by withstanding the test of time. It is Collings' intention to continue this legacy of tradition, quality and style by building the finest acoustic instruments possible.
I play a Collings OM-3HE. The Orchestra Model (OM) guitar is an interpretation of the Martin short run of instruments made between 1929 and 1933. These feature a 000 size body with a 14 fret neck. This guitar features East Indian rosewood back and sides, select Engleman (E) spruce top, grained ivoroid binding, prewar scalloped bracing, crosscut grained ivoroid and black/white nitrate strip purfling, herringbone border, select abalone, black/white wood and nitrate strip rosette, bound fingerboard and double bound peghead, no fingerboard inlay, gold Waverly tuners, tortoise style pickguard. Other features include a gloss-finished mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard and bridge, rosewood peghead overlay with mother of pearl Collings logo.
