Special Jett black HPL top and body with Fishman electronics featuring USB connectivity for even more versatility.

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:

While there are some drawbacks, the guitar is solid, fun to play, and remains in tune.
It is difficult to see, but the Guitar has a smaller body ,
which accounts for the lack of a full acoustic sound.

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

Bought it because of the price. Good construction, easy to play. Solid tuners. The HPL top does make the sound less vibrant than a solid top, but also gives it a unique, tight kind of sound. Really shines in a mix of other acoustics. Lacks the booming, "percussive" quality of solid tops though, which is unfortunate. The pickup is just OK. It's not terrible, but it's not great. Lacks a solid top end sound. The covering/finish on the back of the neck wore off easily, so it's a little rough, but nothing I can't deal with. Overall, a very well-built, solid acoustic. It has some flaws, but it gets the job done nicely.

NOTE: In the picture, the guitar has a black bridge and fingerboard, but mine has a rosewood bridge and fingerboard. If you like the all-black construction, you might want to be careful. I've also seen this model with inlays on the Martin website. They must change the appearance occasionally.
