The Martin D-16E Rosewood acoustic-electric guitar is a wonderful option for the performing guitarist who loves the warm, full tone and robust projection of rosewood topped with Sitka spruce. The guitar's quality construction — which includes scalloped, forward-shifted Sitka spruce X bracing — elicits a sound that is powerful and balanced, with excellent note definition. It complements the human voice beautifully, yet is perfectly at home as a solo instrument or layered into a track. And the onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT2 pickup system amplifies that gorgeous tone flawlessly when plugged in onstage. You'll also find the large dreadnought body and 25.4" scale length great for fingerpicking. But whether finger- or flatpicked, live or unplugged, the Martin D-16E Rosewood is a sheer delight to play.
