Here at The Guitar Store Southampton we have a beautiful 1997 Collings OM3 Spruce Top Rosewood Back and Sides handmade acoustic guitar.

This guitar is in excellent condition with only one minor ding as photographed, has been setup so plays great and sounds incredible.

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.
