Click any picture for supersize view!

An incredible guitar handcrafted in the USA by some of the finest craftsman in the business! This Martin D16E  combines a cutaway dreadnaught body with the beauty and tone of koa. Solid koa back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top for killer tone. Hybrid scalloped X bracing for great projection. The 25.4 inch scale hardwood neck features an ebony fingerboard with dot inlays. Upscale binding and a tasteful rosette give it an upscale look. Sealed tuners and a striped ebony bridge keep it rock solid. The finish is a gorgeous natural gloss on the body with a satin neck for great playability. A tortoise guard sets it off nicely. A Fishman Ellipse pickup system offers great plugged in performance. A great guitar for the stage and studio.

This Martin plays great with nice action and great tone. The modified low oval shaped neck feels great. The action is low and the frets are good. The tone is nice with trademark Martin punch. A really nice acoustic. Condition wise, this is a nice used guitar. Well taken care of, it shows light pick and clearcoat scratches as well as some indents. A good looking guitar. Comes in original hardshell case.

This is a great guitar that would be at home in almost any collection. A gorgeous instrument with killer tone and made in the USA craftsmanship. No longer offered, these were $2199 when new. Here's a nice used one for less.
