Overview

The 6-string Martin OMXAE Black acoustic-electric guitar features Martin’s famous 000-14 platform, auditorium body design. Martin’s OM has been around since 1929. As the innovator, the Martin OM sound defined the well-balanced acoustic guitar sound, by offering just the right amount of bass, midrange, and treble frequencies.

The OMXAE Black is constructed with Martin’s attractive Jett Black FSC Certified HPL. For added tone and volume, the top is articulately braced with Sitka spruce in a 5/16” scalloped X- bracing pattern. The OMXAE Black has a powerful, rich tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar.

The mortise-and-tenon neck joint ensures wood-to-wood contact, creating the optimal amount of resonant tone. The Martin guitar's laminate birch neck is a multilayered wood creation, using bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.

For easy playability, the neck is precision crafted to a Performing Artist shape, with a high performance neck taper. The 25.4" scale, 1-3/4" nut width, and 16" radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the fretboard.

This X Series Martin acoustic guitar comes compete with the Fishman Sonitone. The Fishman Sonitone features a soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a great acoustic guitar sound, right out of the box.

Comments about Martin X Series 2016 OMXAE Black Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Sound is good for a not solid guitar, sound is not consistent on the G string, probably needs a good set up before first use. After all it is a Martin. You will get what you expect of a Martin. Only noticeable downside of a jet black, you have to clean it more often because you will see dust accumulates on the surface so fast. But it gets better everyday. We'll see after a year...
