OM3 Walnut Custom # 30616

Collings OM3 Walnut Custom #30616

With a soundboard cut from old-growth, reclaimed Sitka spruce that spent decades underwater in remote Alaska, this custom OM3 has a unique story woven into its fibers that few other guitars can claim. The top comes from a log that was used as part of a floating logging camp and secured with iron spikes. Years of oxidization has given the wood a dark, earthy hue that accentuates the natural bearclaw figure of the wood. The sugars in the wood have become crystalline, creating an openness and response that only decades of maturity can provide. This extraordinary material is perfectly complemented by figured walnut back and sides, rosewood bindings, MOM inlays and an abalone rosette to tie it all together.
