The Martin OMC15ME Electro Acoustic Guitar in Dark Mahogany is a small-bodied, Orchestral guitar. Martin has been making guitars for over 175 years and they are well known across the world for their quality construction and signature 'chime'.
All Mahogany Construction
The OMC15ME features a construction entirely of Mahogany, to ensure warm tones abound aplenty. The top, back and sides are all constructed from this tonewood, known for its 'woody' character combined with great punch and projection, so you're assured that even when unplugged, this guitar rings out incredibly well. Martin's X-bracing features on this guitar, one of the key components of the distinctive Martin sound, allowing the top to vibrate more freely which promotes bass response and increased volume.
High Performance Taper
The Mahogany constructed neck of the OMC15ME features Martin's High-Performance Taper, ensuring a slinky feel all across the neck. The Modified Low Oval profile feels hefty enough in your hand to comfortably fret complex chord shapes as well as go on fast flamenco-style scale runs. The fretboard is composed of East Indian Rosewood for a luxurious feel under the fingers with 20 frets alongside Diamonds and Squares Short Pattern Inlays made from Abalone, ensuring that even during the most adventurous playing you never lose your way.
Fishman Matrix VT Enhance
The OMC15ME has the all-new Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics to accurately replicate it's natural acoustic tone. This system features an Acoustic Matrix under-saddle pick-up that feeds a custom acoustic image into the internal active preamp to add dimension, resonance and body to the amplified tone of the guitar. It adds responsiveness to your playing by enhancing the dynamic and percussive aspects of guitar playing. Whilst the pickup is sensitive enough to get all the subtle characteristics of even the most nuanced picking, it also works hard to ensure that any transverse energy in terms of string squeak, body noise and feedback is minimised.
The bridge is composed of East Indian Rosewood with Ebony bridge pins to form an extremely stable platform with a steady intonation that will put up with the hardest strumming. The tuning machines are Nickel Open Gear with Butterbean knobs, doing the dual job of looking fantastic and giving you rock-solid tuning stability. A bone nut provides the support between the tuners and the bridge to give you an even action all across the neck.
The Martin OMC15ME Electro Acoustic Guitar in Dark Mahogany is a small-bodied guitar with a huge sound. Combining Martin's legendary luthiery with a whole host of modern appointments you get a guitar that is equally adept whether on stage or in the studio.
