The OMC-16EL Burst, introduced at Nashville NAMM 2019, is yet another of the re-designed 16 Series guitars that combine unique looks, performance and outstanding value. This guitar features solid ovangkol construction; a gloss ovangkol top with sunburst and solid satin ovangkol back and sides. The OMC-16EL Burst has an OMC body shape. Other appointments include 1/4" scalloped X bracing, a High Performance neck and red faux tortoise binding. As with the other new generation of 16 Series guitars, Fishman's Matrix VT Enhance electronics come factory installed for the best plugged in tone available. The OMC-16EL Burst is the perfect choice for those seeking a unique look while desiring a touch of traditional as well.

Solid Ovangkol Construction
The OMC-16EL Burst's top, back and sides are made from solid ovangkol. This beautiful tone wood has been characterized as falling somewhere between East Indian rosewood and koa from a tonal standpoint. The OMC-16EL Burst's top is finished in a beautiful gloss sunburst while the back and sides are finished in satin.

OMC Body Shape
The OM or Orchestra Model was first introduced by Martin back in 1929. It's the same size as a 000 body but with a longer 25.4 scale length which delivers projection and sustain. Coupled with a venetian cutaway, the OMC-16EL Burst is the ultimate body size for top notch performance and comfort.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics
Fishman's Matrix VT Enhance electronics come standard on all 16 Series guitars. So as to not take away from the beauty of the solid ovangkol sides, the volume and tone controls (VT) are tucked away in the upper part of the sound hole while the Enhance control (a bridge plate transducer) is located in the lower part of the sound hole. Battery replacements couldn’t be easier as the battery compartment is located outside on the end of the guitar thus making string removal unnecessary.
