Collings OM2H Sunburst Custom
Immaculate, stunning, exquisite…a rare Collings OM2H customised in a to-die-for Sunburst finish and the most gorgeously streaked exotic ebony headstock veneer I’ve seen on one of these.
Completed in December 2013 for The Fellowship of Acoustics during the pursuit for perfection tenure of Bill Collings, before he died in 2017.

No marks, dings or scratches, just Collings renowned perfection.
Anyone who lusts for one of these fine instruments will need no description or pitch.
An additional excellent custom option deployed on this one is the 1 23/32” nut width, which is right in the middle between the popular standards of 1 11/16” and 1 3/4”, so if you strongly favour one of the nuts, then you will still quickly feel at home with this beautiful tone delight. The soft modified V neck will not put you off either if you don’t favour vintage V necks and will suit anyone who has wanted to have a Collings in their life.
Lovely medium-low action of 3/32” (2.4mm) & 2/32” (1.6mm) E and e, respectively. Can easily be lowered or raised to taste.
This stunning as-new heirloom instrument is only for sale at the listed price.
A new custom build to the same specs would cost well over €7000 today, plus extraordinary wait time.
