Acoustic-electric Cutaway Dreadnought guitar with Sitka Spruce Top, Sycamore Back and Sides, Select Hardwood Neck, Black Ebony Fingerboard, and Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics - Natural

Legendary Martin Sound and Feel

This well-established and innovative solid wood 16 Series guitar was originally conceived and developed as an experiment to deliver better sound at a lower cost by using a special combination of Martin's proprietary bracing systems. The Forward-Shifted X Scalloped bracing, as you'll find on this DC-16E, has become a longtime Martin favorite. The DC-16E is crafted of premium tonewoods, including a solid Sitka spruce top, sycamore sides and back, and a black ebony fingerboard. In a dreadnought-sized guitar, this tonewood package delivers huge, yet balanced tone. Nearly 16 inches wide and five inches deep, the "D" is Martin's largest body, giving the DC-16E one of the biggest voices in the acoustic guitar world. Take the stage, plug in, and the exquisite Martin tone is flawlessly amplified by the onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics.


The classic sound of a Sitka spruce top

This Martin DC-16E's top is crafted of Sitka spruce. Its high stiffness combined with the lightweight characteristics of most softwoods, makes it a natural for a high velocity sound. A strong fundamental-to-overtone ratio gives Sitka spruce a powerful direct tone capable of retaining its clarity when played forcefully. This makes Sitka a top choice among players whose style demands a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.
