The Collings OM2H features a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides. The extra features are what make this particular model stand out from the rest, featuring a thicker, deep body, measuring 4 5/8″ deep. The deeper body provides rich low tones not often heard on OM size guitars, providing an incredibly rich and full sound.
The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the deep depth of the body on this custom model results in a strong and powerful tone with an immediate response and much larger bottom end than is generally found on OM sized guitars.
This guitar possesses all the projection and tonal clarity Collings is known for, while still maintaining a good measure of warmth on the bottom end. The body size of the OM lends itself towards a more focused and defined tone than a typical dreadnought size, in a much more comfortable package.
Sitka Spruce and Indian Rosewood is a classic combination of tonewoods that is incredibly easy to fall in love with on a guitar such as this Collings. Sitka is highly responsive and is well suited for fingerstyle players and flatpickers alike. This wood is rich in tone with warm, blossoming low end and smooth, pleasant highs. When combined with the Indian Rosewood, the combination really shines, producing a guitar with a surprisingly loud voice, impeccable clarity, and that legendary Collings tone.

This particular OM 2H has been used professionally over the past couple of years, but it has been well looked after. There are a few small marks on the back, but nothing of significance, and some light pick swirling on the guard. But apart from that, this Collings OM 2H is mighty clean.
The modified soft V shape neck is super comfy in all positions, with minimal fret wear barely visible.
It has a great sounding LR Baggs pickup installed, with volume control discretely mounted inside the sound hole.
Structurally sound, well played in, and well set up, this guitar would suit a pro player, or anyone who appreciates real quality acoustic tone from one of the world’s best manufacturers.
Comes in its original Collings hard case in excellent condition.
