    I have a Collings OM2H as well, Shadco. Although I mostly play electrics, it is one of my favorite guitars. In addition to it's drop-dead sound and playablity, I adore it's understated looks.

    Hope you enjoy yours as much as i do

    You're going to love it. I have the cutaway version (Sitka and Indian ) and it stuns me every time I pick it up. True lap pianos. Just for contrast sake, I like doing sets with my OM and my National Reso-rocket - kind of like a Steinway versus a freight train.

    My OM is a SCGC but it sure keeps my Martin D-28 and Taylor jumbo in their cases. I love the tone from an OM body and Collings is just about as good as it gets. Congrats!!

    Congrats! Collings make AWESOME guitars!!

    I had an OM2H for a year or so. Terrific guitar! Until I played an OM1A, that is.... ;)

    Collings are very nice... I really wanted a good OM for my acoustic and wound up about 6 years ago with a Dana Bourgeois mahogany/spruce OM... the guy at my guitar shop in nashville (Joe Glaser) said it was the closest he's heard to a pre-WWII OM-18 since he'd played the real thing... I have no idea, it wasn't even ridiculously expensive at the time (used), however, it is an amazing guitar... I might put new strings on it tonight...
