The Martin OMXAE Black is a perfect example. The PA-profile Black Stratabond neck and Black Richlite fingerboard give you buttery-smooth playability. This eye-catching acoustic-electric guitar sports a 000-14 Fret body with Jett Black HPL top, back, and sides, for big, balanced tone. Plug in onstage, and the onboard Fishman Sonitone electronics amplify that wonderful tone flawlessly. Plug into your computer, and you're ready to record. The Martin OMXAE Black: a cool guitar, and a great value.

Performing Artist neck profile, for buttery-smooth playability

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you've got a Martin OMXAE Black acoustic-electric guitar. The OMXAE Black features one of Martin's amazing Performing Artist series necks. The slim profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in total comfort.

A buzzworthy fretboard, without the fret buzz

Here's the skinny on the revolutionary composite fretboard material Martin used on the OMXAE Black: it's awesome. Unlike wood, Richlite is unaffected by changes in temperature or humidity. No more winter pitting or spring-swell fret buzz! It's also hard enough to be used as cutting surfaces in the most demanding professional kitchens on earth. The result is a great feeling fretboard that adds killer sustain to your OMXAE Black.

Ready for performance and recording, with Fishman Sonitone electronics

The Martin OMXAE Black comes equipped with Fishman Sonitone electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage or plug into your computer for easy recording. The pickup is mounted inside the soundhole, giving you easy access to volume and tone controls. Fishman is a world leader in acoustic amplification, giving you exceptional plugged-in tone with the Martin OMXAE Black.

Sweet Guitar

I was looking for a guitar to use on my boat that wasn't effected as much by moisture swings so went with the HPL in lieu of all wood. This is a nice Guitar. Sounds great and plays real easy. Came with a good gig bag as well. Hard to beat this for the price. I have another Martin 00015M and a Taylor as well. This one is a homerun for quality and appearance just as I would expect from Martin. The Sweetwater website is always a cinch to use and the folks at Sweetwater are always good to deal with when you call. This shipped on time and was packaged very well.

One for the road!

I own a more expensive Martin OM that I baby, but I wanted a similar size guitar that I could play outdoors and travel with - without constantly worrying about it. The OMXAE was a perfect fit. I keep it in my Jeep most of the time and it always stays in tune and sounds great. I knew Martin made this guitar series in an OM, but never saw it at any guitar stores. I visited the Sweetwater showroom and of course they had it is stock (they actually had four for me to choose from). I got the road guitar I wanted and the price let me stay with Martin.

Surprisingly Awesome !!!

Great Sound for 500 bucks !!! Used at worship plugged in and got lots of compliments... Sounds just as good unplugged... I am also sold on the Martin SP strings that it came with, bright and stay in tune... So, I recommend anyone to get one of these... I have been wanting a Martin for years but couldn't afford it, now it is a reality (made in mexico)...

Amazing guitar. Sounds great and playable right out of the box! If you're looking for a guitar in a difficult weather area (high humidity, heat, etc.). This is the guitar for you! It handles weather beautifully with no real issues regarding staying in tune. A great electric - acoustic guitar for live performance!

I play a lot of outdoor gigs in the summer, so I need something pretty stable. I decided on the all HPL Martin OM. Out of the box, the guitar was perfectly set up, what a nice surprise. Plugged in, this guitar sounds pretty darn good, just have to tame the treble. Acoustically, it is not the loudest guitar, but it does have a pleasing sound. I think this guitar will be perfect for my applications. Kudos to Sweetwater for checking and sending out a nice playing guitar.
