To some, the sound of that first OM may have been good unless compared side by side. Then it still may be good/better depending on the person. I had a certain sound I was looking for and it didn't have it. The second OM did.

As far as the binding is concerning, I would have to agree with you. They said they checked all the ones they had and none of them were totally flat. I'm not sure if this is normal. Based on another forum member, who also posted with a Custom Martin with the same issue, it may be more prevalent than one would expect.
