Auditorium 000 Body Shape
The Martin Auditorium (000) body is one of the most balanced guitars in the Martin line. Its thin body and tight waist control the tone of the instrument. You’ll hear a well-defined bass, solid midrange, and a clear treble. Whether strummed with a pick, or played finger style, each note is faithfully articulated with clarity and sustain.
Tonewood and Bracing
As an African relative to rosewood, ovangkol was selected for its tonal characteristics of a balanced low end, full mid-range, and crisp top end. Ovangkol is the perfect choice for players that are searching for an all-purpose instrument that works well in a variety of musical situations. To dial in the right amount of tone and projection, the top has been braced to perfection, using Martin’s 1/4" scalloped X bracing pattern. Topping off the eye-catching ovangkol, these instruments are adorned with an attractive sunburst, tortoise binding and state-of-the-art Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced.
Playability is a must for many of today’s demanding musical styles, and Martin has got you covered. The 2018 OMC Special Performing Artist Ovangkol Auditorium has one of the most comfortable necks on the market. Martin’s Performing Artist Neck, with High Performance Taper has a slimmer profile that allows you to glide across the neck with ease. You will hardly notice the difference as you transition from playing your electric guitar to this easy-playing instrument. And as a bonus, each guitar receives a computerize PLEK setup for the perfect custom action of each instrument. If you’re a fingerstyle player, singer songwriter, professional, or weekend hobbyist, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and feels.
Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced
Equipped with the Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced to deliver a new level of superior sound quality and dynamic playing response. The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with amazing responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch. The Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced is unobtrusive, with no controls or holes cut into the side of the guitar. The easy-to-use Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls are mounted inside the soundhole for convenient access during performance. It combines a Fishman unique under-the-saddle pickup with Fishman’s new Enhance bridge plate transducer. This patented technology is used to bring out the sound of the body, and the dynamic and percussive elements of guitar playing. The Enhance Transducer is specially designed to capture dynamic and percussive attack of the guitar top while being highly resistant to the energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback. You’ll hear the guitar exactly as you play it, without any sound coloration or dead spots.
