Collings / OM1A LH / 2012 / Guitar
Pete Huttlinger is recognized around the world as one of the greatest fingerstyle guitar players of our time. His amazing ability to play melody, harmony, rhythm and everything in between has long captivated fans and fellow musicians alike. Pete bought his first Collings in March of 1997. Over the years, he has continually supported and promoted Collings instruments and, in the process, has become a great friend. Unfortunately, his life has recently been turned upside down while he deals with a serious medical condition.
Pete has a congenital heart defect and has become extremely ill during the past year. He suffered a massive stroke last fall and then underwent major heart surgery in May. This procedure left him with a mechanical pump implanted in his heart, requiring him to carry a battery pack that must be worn at all times. He is now gaining strength and is awaiting a heart transplant. Our prayers and heartfelt wishes are with him and his wife Erin.
For decades, his beautiful playing and warm spirit have uplifted many hearts. Now, Collings would like to give something back. In his honor, they are proud to introduce the limited edition "Pete Huttlinger Signature OM1" model. Collings will limit the number built to 50 and each of these special guitars will have a custom signed and numbered label.
The Pete Huttlinger model is an OM1 Cutaway with Pete's signature elegantly inlaid in the 12th fret. It is offered in both Sitka and Adirondack top versions to reflect Pete's two main touring guitars. To help Pete and Erin with their astronomical medical costs, $1,000 will be donated for each guitar sold. Any additional donations can be made to the Pete Huttlinger medical fund through his website at www.petehuttlinger.com.
