The OM-28V is the best OM if you want pre-war specs that won’t break the bank. This has scalloped braces which gives it a big smooth sound. The neck has a slight V that is very comfortable to play. This is a beautiful guitar and a steal! Two finish cracks between bridge and lower bout, a tiny bit of bridge lift. Great condition otherwise.
