What do you get when jazz musician Julian Lage and guitar-maker Bill Collings join forces to build a custom guitar? The Collings OM1A JL Julian Lage.
Sharing the foundational specs of the OM1 T, their first collaboration guitar, the OM1A recreates the 1939 Martin 000-18’s well-worn neck and vintage look and feel. Described as “lovingly neutral”, this guitar allows you to play as you wish and keeps up with you.
Other specifications include:
