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.

Click here for an enchanting TFOA playing demo of the actual guitar you’re pining over (TFOA Passport included):

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.

Hi…what are the woods on the guitar…?
And what year is it…..any repairs or such….thanks

@rayhill recording room Hi, thanks for your message. This OM2H has beautiful Sitka Spruce over the finest East Indian Rosewood, standard for the Collings OM2H. It was born in 2016 and is in flawless condition, no breaks, cracks, repairs or marks of any kind. Better than a new one with 6 years of loving playing gone into it.

My apologies, I just rechecked my correspondence with Collings since I acquired it…it actually shipped ex Collings in mid December 2013 to The Fellowship of Acoustics, so I guess the first owner had the pleasure of it in 2014.

I've a mint 2019 D28 and a mint 2021 custom O size Avalon that I'm considering parting with as I don't play the larger guitars much. Either of interest to you?
AstonDK76 3 months ago
@RichieMCE Not really sure, mate…I don’t know the Avalons much and as for a dread, I want to find the one and I’d kind of rather find a vintage one. Thanks
RichieMCE 3 months ago
No worries. If you have a change of heart let me know and we can discuss.

I will leave this one up until Sunday night, then I will withdraw it as I’m having awful second thoughts about leaving this one go and I’ll be away next week. Thanks.

Hi, just for any watchers who might be genuinely interested in acquiring this gem, it’s available on other platforms and it may very possibly be destined to go home to the US soon with some genuine interest that could conclude soon; just in case anyone would like to keep it on the island or not miss this opportunity. Thanks.

She’s going home to the US mid week. Thanks.
