The Martin 16 series is an affordable entry-point into the world of USA-made Martin guitars. With its mahogany body, Sitka spruce top, and built-in Fishman Matrix VT electronics, the D-16E is a workhorse guitar offering the quality of tone and craftsmanship you expect from an American-made Martin.

The dreadnought is arguably the most popular acoustic guitar shape in the world, and Martin were the inventors of it! Dreadnoughts are known for being one the louder body shapes thanks to its big sound and excellent projection. With a booming bass and lower-midrange response, you're sure to be heard with a dreadnought. This shape is responsive to both strumming and fingerpicking so it'll handle whatever style you throw at it.

The powerful Dreadnought body is complemented by the tonewoods on this guitar. The mahogany back and sides provide warmth and punchiness to the tone, while the Sitka spruce top has a balanced response. The result is a versatile tone that's great for a wide range of styles, particularly folk and blues genres where a warm, direct tone is important. This guitar has a modified low oval neck, a rounded shape that fills the hand nicely. The high-performance neck taper keeps the neck comfortable whether you're playing open chords reaching those upper frets.

This guitar is ready to perform thanks to the built-in Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics. The Enhance undersaddle pickup is designed to bring out the dynamics and percussiveness in your playing. You can blend this in or out with the discreet, soundhole mounted preamp that also features volume and tone controls for shaping your sound.
