From Dana Bourgeois:

You can think of the OM Vintage as a smaller version of our Vintage D–or maybe it’s the other way around. The OM, you see, is really where it all started. Here’s what Dana has to say. “Back in the early 80’s, I had a great opportunity to work on very many pre-war OMs. Due to their lack of metal neck reinforcement, almost all were totally unplayable. They had probably been so for quite some time, which would explain why, as a group, they appeared to be in otherwise spectacular condition. In spite of appearances, however, most of these guitars didn’t sound as good one would expect. Over time I found that stabilizing the rigidity of the neck and setting it to the proper complementary angle–relative to the degree of flexibility of the top (or its present state of deterioration, in some cases–could transform a ho-hum OM into a monster. Remember, these are small guitars. I found that the best OMs can sound almost as big as a dreadnought, but you’ve got a much narrower window in which to make all the parts work as a unit”
