Martin smashes all the conventions with the Road Series SC-10E, an ultra-advanced instrument that offers musicians an unrivaled performance experience. With its offset body, heel-less design, and 13-fret construction, this acoustic has a distinctive look and is perfect for guitarists who prioritize comfort and playability. Plus, thanks to its Fishman MX-T electronics, it has an incredible amplified tone, making it a well-rounded workhorse.
The SC-10E starts with an all-sapele body, giving it a phenomenal tone with punchy mids, exceptional sustain, and a little extra treble zing. Plug it into an acoustic amplifier, though, and you'll be blown away by how good its Fishman MX-T pickup system sounds - it flawlessly recreates the SC-10E's rich, woody voice. The MX-T electronics also boast a built-in tuner that auto-mutes your signal when engaged and an LCD screen for exceptional visibility, even in low-light environments.
Once you have the Martin SC-10E in your hands, you won't want to set it down. Its offset S-shaped body has a comfortable, ergonomic feel that allows for hours of play. Additionally, its heel-less Sure Align neck system allows for seamless transitions into the upper register, a must-have feature for frequent lead players. And, thanks to its low-profile velocity neck shape, guitarists can comfortably rotate their fretting hand to accommodate any playing style.
Crafted with a Tone Tension X-brace that provides plenty of power, projection, and low-end resonance, the Martin SC-10E is a groundbreaking acoustic-electric guitar built for advanced performance.
