I own an OM and an OMG, both purchased new within the last 3 years. They both have a soft V profile that I find very comfortable. I’m not sure if the neck profile has changed since 1996, but as someone mentioned, call Carolyn at Santa Cruz and she can provide you with the most useful information to help you decide if the OM comes in different profiles. The PW and Standard OMs (for example) might have different profiles.
