The Martin D-12E is an all-new Road Series instrument that provides players with a solid-wood dreadnought at an affordable price. Its D-14 Fret body, Sitka Spruce top, and Sapele back/sides give it a well-balanced, lively tone that you'd expect in a guitar twice its price. The D-12E also has a Style 28 rosette, Style 18 purfling, black pickguard, and Mother of Pearl dot inlays to give it an authentic Martin look to match its tone. And thanks to a hand-rubbed neck finish, FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and High-Performance Taper neck, you get top-notch playability and in-hand feel. Plus, it comes with a premium soft shell case to keep it safe and sound, no matter where you’re headed.
