The Martin OMC-16ME acoustic-electric guitar is a wonderful option for the performing guitarist who loves the warm, centered tones of ovangkol. Ovangkol, used top, back, and sides of the OMC-16ME, is tonally similar to rosewood, but with a slightly fuller midrange and a bright high-end reminiscent of koa. The guitar's quality construction — which includes scalloped Sitka spruce X bracing — elicits a sound that is powerful and balanced, with excellent note definition. It complements the human voice beautifully, yet is perfectly at home as a solo instrument or layered into a track. And the onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 pickup system amplifies that gorgeous tone flawlessly when plugged in onstage. You'll also find the smaller 000-14 Orchestra Model body and 25.4" scale length ideal for fingerpicking. But whether finger- or flatpicked, live or unplugged, the Martin OMC-16ME is a sheer delight to play.
