Martin 16-Series OMC-16E Burst Acoustic Electric Guitar

All Ovangkol Orchestra Model Sports a Unique Look and a Rich Sound

The Martin OMC-16E Burst orchestra model cutaway is handcrafted with an Ovangkol gloss top in a gorgeous mahogany burst finish, and satin finish Ovangkol back and sides and Martin’s classic scalloped Sitka Spruce X-bracing, delivering a resonant sound with rich overtones, while the cutaway body shape gives easy access to the upper register of the neck. 

With Martin’s modified low oval neck shape with high performance neck taper, the Martin OMC-16E delivers classic Martin tone with enhanced playability. The satin finish select hardwood neck with Ebony fingerboard and style 28 inlays is extremely comfortable to play whether you are strumming chords, playing fingerstyle or picking leads.

This Martin OMC-16E Burst acoustic-electric comes stage ready with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance electronics, an undersaddle preamp system with soundhole mounted controls and an undersaddle transducer designed to capture the pristine acoustic sound of the instrument with all of the dynamic and percussive attack of the guitar while resisting unwanted sounds like feedback, string squeak and handling noise. 

Premium appointments include bold Herringbone multi-stripe rosette, ebony modern belly bridge with drop-in white tusq saddle, a bone nut, and nickel open gear tuners with butterbean knobs add to the premium feel, giving this Martin 16 series orchestra model the sound and feel of a classic Martin.
