Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we have a beautiful 2011 Collings OM3 Shaded Top (Sunburst) with the fretboard Tree Of Life inlay.

This guitar was custom ordered and built for a good customer of the shop (Mr Collins), hence the plaque on the side of the case stating "Collings for Collins", which was a kind gesture added by the late Bill Collings when the guitar was completed.

The guitar was started in 2011 which matches the serial number but the guitar was finished in 2012 which is why the plaque on the side of the case states 2012.

The guitar is in excellent condition having only been lightly used at home.

The guitar is fitted with a Fishman Eclipse Matrix Blend pickup system.

OM3 '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 finger-style guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Yet flat-pickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. 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.

Please see the photographs as they form part of the description. We can supply more detailed or specific photographs on request.
