Martin OMC-X1E Black Acoustic Guitar
The X series is entry-point into the world of full-size Martin guitars. Featuring a black-finishÂ high-pressure laminate (HPL) bodyÂ and Fishman MX electronics, the OMC-X1EÂ offers a piece of Martin's famous craftsmanship at a more affordable price.
The OM body shape is a true all-rounder. Unlike larger body shapes like dreadnoughts and jumbos, you get a more balanced sound across the frequencies, so it's great for a wide range of genres. The OM shape is similar to the 000, however, the OM has a slightly longer scale length as well as wider fingerboard which makes fingerstyle more comfortable. There's also a cutaway which makes it easier to access those upper frets. Whether you're fingerpicking or strumming you'll find the OM responds well to your playing.
This guitar is ready to perform thanks to the built-in Fishman MX electronics. The Fishman MX is a simple plug-in-and-play solution and features a discrete preamp with volume and tone controls mounted on the soundhole. Whether you're performing live into an amp/PA, or you're recording into an audio interface, the OMC-X1E is ready to go right out of the box!
