A beautifully restored OM from the key year, with the smaller teardrop pickguard. Originally came with 4:1 ratio banjo tuners, now switched to top-grade Gotoh butterbean tuners. There are those to whom it's essential to have original tuners; I am one for whom it's essential to have tuners that will tune the instrument, and 4:1 just doesn't do it. Back to the original topic: this OM has had a top refin by Chris Berkov, along with a perfect crack repair/inlay as well as some hairlines in the sides. Back & sides have had a French polish . The neck has been reset and has the typical 1930 perfect shape, this one being slightly smaller than usual. Tonally, you get the ultimate guitarness that we expect from a great OM-28: A deep and clear bass, a bright yet fat, singing treble, and the immediacy and responsivenss that to me is an essential characteristic of this model.
