OVERVIEW

A comfortable body with solid tonewoods, deluxe inlays and custom electronics.

The Martin OMC-Aura Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a dealer exclusive and comes with custom Fishman Aura electronics engineered specifically for you. The Martin 000 body is joined at the 14th fret using all-solid wood construction and a mortise/tenon neck joint. Solid tonewoods are used throughout and include a Sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood for the back and sides. The elegance of this beauty is evident, but not overstated with tasteful touches like a 45-pearl rosette and intricate body binding. The comfortable neck has a smooth ebony fingerboard with attactive hexagon outlines in pearl. The bridge and headplate are also ebony with the C.F. Martin inlayed in pearl. Includes case.

Fishman F-1 Aura Plus with Easy Model and Performance Mode
After the guitar is finished at Martin's factory, it is sent to Fishman where they create and install its special onboard preamp with customized sounds using different high-end microphones. The Fishman F-1 Aura Plus has two operating modes, Easy and Performance. The Easy Mode has four custom sound images created just for this guitar. Performance Mode goes deeper with nine microphone images, dual 3-band EQ, nine different compressions, anti feedback, and a blending capability between the microphone and acoustic body sound.

    Comments about Martin Custom OMC-Aura Cutaway Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Finally jumped that "bling" train. My Ovation A/E was stolen and I needed a replacement A/E. Really looked hard at all the Martin Grand Performance Models and played a few at the local shop. There wasn't an OM Aura locally but when I saw a picture with the headstock and black tuners my wallet melted. I was put off by the Thermo-nuclear-plastic case but can trade for a Geib and a little cash. The Martin plastic case IS lighter for the seasoned picker. I spent 2 days acclimating to the OMC: Easy Mode, Performance mode thru my AS100D Marshall. I dialed Vol to 9 o'clock the B/M/T to 12 o'clock, added some chorus, a dash of delay, and a touch of Room reverb. The Aura Images are sutle but distinct. The controls are easy to learn even for my aging noodle. The DVD tutorial was well done. The OMC Aura fits the gap between my '84 Martin J40M, '85 Lemon Grove Taylor 510 w/piezo, and '71 Ballader. This was my first sight unseen guitar purchase. But I'm thinking I did the right thing, plus I now have art in my home. Go MF.

    Great sound from the perfect-sized guitar!

    Comments about Martin Custom OMC-Aura Cutaway Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    This is a beautiful instrument, with a full, rich, balanced sound. OM size is was what I wanted, so I did not expect nor was I looking for the boominess of a dreadnought. It arrived with a minor cosmetic issue - the bridge pins were wildly out of line vertically. I took it to a Martin-authorized luthier who straightened them under warranty. I could not be more pleased with the appearance, sound or playability of this great guitar from the Martin custom shop!

    DROP DEAD GORGEOUS-ALMOST TOO PRETTY TO PLAY. FAST ACTION-SOUNDS SWEET-NICE ELECTRONICS& CASE IS ALSO TOP QUALITY. ONLY PROBLEM IS A STRONG CHEMICAL SMELL.

        Comments about Martin Custom OMC-Aura Cutaway Orchestra Model Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I just play guitar for fun but have always wanted a Martin. After years of owning literally dozens of guitars I was finally able to get a Martin. I was looking for a standard dreadnought like a D-28 but when I tried this one on a whim I was just swept away.

        Everything about it is perfect right out of the box, intonation, action, not a single flaw. The sound is amazing from a smaller body guitar.

        This guitar has lots of bling too, which I didn't want at first, but it has grown on me and I'm glad I got it.

        I will never have to buy another acoustic guitar.
