1997 Collings OM-42

8,995.00

An outstanding small body acoustic from Collings Guitars and Mandolins, this 1997 OM-42 does not disappoint.  Featuring Adirondack spruce top, "B" grade Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, and Honduran mahogany neck, this small body provides a mid range thump for fingerstyle, as well as rich lows and shimmering high end.  The overall EQ spectrum of the instrument is balanced, and the instrument is capable of being a great fingerstyle guitar, as well as flatpicker's dream.  Guitars using Brazilian Rosweood are somewhat of a rarity in the Collings line.  This instrument features stellar wood choice, and given its age, has had the time to open up.  

The condition of the guitar is excellent, with only a few minute scratches.
