A Look At The Martin OME Cherry Acoustic Guitar
The Martin OME Cherry
is a special guitar that deserves some time in your hands. As the name indicated, this guitar does away with the more traditional Mahogany or Rosewood back and sides and trades them for Cherry wood. The Martin OME Cherry is FSC certified. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is a Chain-of-Custody Certification that ensures sustainability in the woods being used on selected Martin guitars. This means that this guitar not only sounds great it is also environmentally and socially friendly.
Even though it is built with Cherry wood, this OME is still 100% Martin. The Cherry is paired with a solid Sitka Spruce top, a mahogany performance neck that is adorned with an ebony fretboard and an African Blackwood head plate.
"OM" stands for orchestra model, which is a small body when compared to a traditional dreadnought. This body size is comfortable to play while sitting or standing. That paired with a Fishman MAtrix VT Enhance pickup system, make this guitar great for live performance.
It is not uncommon for smaller bodied guitars to have less bass response than their dreadnought counterparts, but the Martin OME Cherry will surprise you with the bass it projects. A beautiful even tone with enough bass to fill the room.
