Martin D-16e


Legendary Martin Sound and Feel

This well-established and innovative solid wood 16 Series guitar was originally conceived and developed as an experiment to deliver better sound at a lower cost by using a special combination of Martin's proprietary bracing systems. The Forward-Shifted X Scalloped bracing, as you'll find on this D-16E, has become a longtime Martin favorite. The D-16E is crafted of premium tonewoods, including a solid Sitka spruce top, sycamore sides and back, and a black ebony fingerboard. In a dreadnought-sized guitar, this tonewood package delivers huge, yet balanced tone. Nearly 16 inches wide, the "D" is Martin's largest body, giving the D-16E one of the biggest voices in the acoustic guitar world. Take the stage, plug in, and the exquisite Martin tone is flawlessly amplified by the onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics.
