OM-28 Eric Clapton is a beautiful, high quality guitar. I almost purchased one myself.

I have fat fingers, and like wide necks, which may be why I didn't go for it. Wider necks are harder to play, but fat fingers make it too easy to get a buzz or mute when playing.

I also like 12 fret necks. I like to imagine that letting the body touch the neck at the point of harmonics disrupts the sound waves less. Wave reflections should stack in phase.

Doubtful it means anything, but it's all in fun!
