The D-16E is one of Martin's most affordable US-made, solid wood acoustic-electric guitars. It's perfect for players seeking a high-quality workhorse guitar that's ready for gigging right out of the box.
One unique feature of the D-16E is the 000-depth dreadnought body, which offers the comfort of a small body guitar while retaining much of the bass and volume of a traditional dreadnought.
We're also excited to see that Martin is has upgraded their 16 Series guitars from Richlite composite fingerboards to ebony.
This 16 Series Dreadnought is crafted with satin-finished East Indian rosewood back and sides for resonant sound with deep bass and rich overtones.
It includes a Sitka spruce gloss top for balanced tone and projection and a high-performance neck taper for ease of playability up and down the fretboard.
The D-16E Rosewood comes equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance electronics. Strung with Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 light gauge strings.
