The 16 series from Martin are some of our favorite guitars in the store, for the simple reason that customers get renowned Martin quality at an affordable price. This D-16e provides the voluptuous sound of an all-solid Martin dreadnaught - with a pickup, to boot - at less than $ 2,000! The shape and size will be fairly consistent with the classic dreadnaught design that the company famously pioneered nearly 100 years ago, but the body's depth is a half inch thinner, resulting in a slightly more ergonomic and comfortable playing feel, without sacrificing much of the low end. And the onboard Fishman VT Enhance pickup is one of our favorites, providing a very true-to-life reproduction of the guitar's acoustic sound, with Fishman's Enhance preamp to add warmth and body. Finally, the D-16e comes with a deluxe Martin gig bag, ensuring that your instrument stays safe, but is still easy to carry and travel with.
