Default Collings OM1 ss Wenge b/s - Baked Sitka top

Asking $3,200 plus shipping.

This is one sweet sounding guitar in very minty condition with little playing time. Note that this is a short scale (24 7/8") instrument which makes bending strings a heck of a lot easier. Great for blues or fingerstyle. 1 3/4 inch nut gives it a nice feel. Comes with Collings TKL case (not the newer Collings case).

To read more about Wenge as a tonewood, look no further than our own AGF thread:
