The Martin D-16E gives acoustic players full-bodied Martin tone and playability, with an array of players-grade features, at a price that won't break the bank. With a dreadnought-shaped body and East Indian rosewood back and sides, you have a rock-solid tonal foundation complemented by the beautiful high-end sparkle of a Sitka spruce top. You also get exceptional playability up and down the neck, thanks to a high-performance taper and modified low oval shape. The D-16E also has a Bold Herringbone Multi-Stripe rosette, faux tortoise pickguard, and Antique White binding, which are some nice aesthetic touches. Plus, the guitar’s Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics ensure quality tone every time you plug it in. If you’re looking for an affordable USA-Made Martin that doesn’t sacrifice tone and playability, then the D-16E is the guitar for you.
