Ovangkol is the perfect choice for players that are searching for an all-purpose instrument that works well in a variety of musical situatons. To dial in the right amount of tone and projection, the top has been braced to perfection, using Martin’s world-renown 5/16” Forward Shifted Scalloped X Bracing Pattern. This pattern was made famous during Martin’s “Golden Era” of guitar building in the 1930s; and since then, the Martin Forward Shifted X Brace has been one of the most respected and collectable sound in acoustic guitar history. Topping off the eye-catching ovangkol, these instruments are adorned with an attractive sunburst, tortoise binding and state-of-the-art Fishman VT Enhanced.
