"I, too, prefer a 1 3/4 modified V. I like the extra space to dig in. I like the V in my hands. My hands are probably average size, but I don't mind 1 7/8 mod V necks. I'd rather adjust big than small."
"My edit did not work...my 000-42Koa 12-fret is the nicest (to me) sounding guitar outside of two others I have played (but not owned): a 1934 00-40H and a 1932 OM-28. Twelve-fret guitars have a voice which just says "Listen here!"."
"I go with the OM-28V as a veristile guitar with a great sound, neck, body size and bracing.
You have a nice representation of Martin guitars.
A 000-28(or 42)VS would bring some 12-fret representation and the ear-catching tone…"
