Tradition is a wonderful thing, because a traditional instrument has stood the test of time.  It does the job, and it does it well, that's the reason it became a tradition.  It works and works well.  Collings has combined traditional guitar design with superb workmanship and created a new standard in OM Guitars, the Collings OM2H-T.  All the guys here at the shop are blown away by this guitar, it's the new favorite.  I love the case, it was made by Collings and is like the early Martin cases from the thirties.  The top has been upgraded with the torrefied, "Aged", option which takes an already great guitar and makes it even better. 


 


The Traditional or "T" Series guitars reflect Bill Collings' return to his guitar making roots and offer a new tonal variation on the distinctive Collings sound. Each T Series guitar is built using animal protein glue and a very thin all nitrocellulose lacquer finish on the body, making them exceptionally dynamic and responsive. Bracing and tone woods are adjusted for weight and thickness to create a voicing characterized by warm, rounded highs and a present low midrange, while retaining a quick attack and strong projection. Each Traditional series guitar will come with a handmade lightweight Collings case designed and built in the Collings shop. The pairing of these new Traditional guitars and cases makes for a combination of old world quality and aesthetic that is unprecedented among instruments available today.
