Advert Description

I'M SELLING ONE OF TWO GUITARS!
The other one is in this ad:
Collings OM1 H Acoustic Guitar, Herringbone Binding
It means, that you can come and try out two similar and very different guitars!
THIS guitar:
A mint condition Collings OM1. Serial # 17722. Build in 2010.
This is a very precious instrument with a wider nut(1 3/4" Nut Width).
Only one owner. Smoke free environment.
It's good for fingerpicking and strumming both.
Some like the wide nut for fingerpicking.
The sound is very, very good, from the clear bass to the full trebles .
The sitka spruce top is lush to look at.
It's a very light and responsive guitar.
For more information you can look up the Collings website,
even though if you are reading this,
you probably already know about Collings guitars.
I'm selling because I can't justify having too many guitars of this class.
It really deserves to be played.
This is a world class premium instrument, and it is pick-up only.
You'll have to come to Bristol to try the guitar out for yourself.
I will not ship it, and I am not getting involved in returns.
The guitar is lovely and in excellent condition, so come and try it and buy it, if you like it.

'OM' stands for "Orchestra Model," but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing. The compact shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.
