Breedlove OM/SM...Made in Korea

My good friend @Hamstrung sent me an email today in the form of a Kijiji alert.
We tempt each other with these deals we find.
It was my turn to cave.

The pic (from Google images) is the same as the guitar I bought.
It came with a HSC and I paid $150.00.

The seller was very fast with communications and only lives a few blocks away.

It is in excellent condition apart form one of the tuner buttons has been replaced with one that doesn't match exactly. The strings are true vintage and the frets have a slight greenish "patina". No significant fret wear or major scratches or dents.

The neck is comfortable and the body size is what I have been preferring and enjoying recently.

Does anyone have any knowledge (or an educated guess) as to what the "SM" part of the OM/SM stands for? ...Something possibly related to mahogany ???

Cheers

Dave

Probably Sapele.
Breedloves are nice guitars--even their lower priced models.

Enjoy!

Good find you got there. I would have jumped on that one too.

Thanks everyone.

Today's minor rehab: new strings, fret polishing and a bit of general cleaning.

I am now trying desperately not to look at Kijiji...even if I'm tempted.

Cheers

Don't worry, I'll look for you and let you know when I find something! Congrats on the new guitar!

+1 on Kijiji. I had a really hard time talking myself out of buying a Collings SJ from a Kijiji ad lately. Now if I would just stop looking, darn GAS.

Nice guitar, I really like my Breedlove as well. Congratulations.

I saw that in your thread. It certainly is great when one can enjoy the gear one owns without having a true "need" to get more.

I still can't break the habit of looking at Kijiji...and that is OK as long as I don't respond to any ads. As soon as I respond, I often end up buying.

I'll join the circle as well.
I'm a kijiji whore!
I can avoid responding to ads, but, when they're too irresistible, I'll share them here via 'kijiji alerts'.
I hope that I'm not the cause of many a member's gas?:eek:

I can't remember you being the cause of any of my GAS that I actually ended up spending money on. Can you remember anything that I might have forgotten?
