Bold dreadnought sound with premium Fishman electronics.
This 16 series cutaway dreadnought is built for big, resonant tone with a solid spruce top and solid mahogany body. The Fishman Premium Blender stereo electronics deliver breathtakingly accurate amplification. The final touch is a polished gloss top. Includes Martin vinyl hardshell case.
The Fishman Prefix Premium Blend electronics including an onboard chromatic tuner, a gooseneck-style internal microphone, and a streamlined new look.
Standard on the Prefix Premium Blend is the acclaimed Acoustic Matrix under-saddle pickup. To compliment and contrast this pickup, the miniature gooseneck microphone captures the guitar's elusive natural ambience and sound chamber resonance. You can blend the pickup and the microphone together for a powerful and cohesive acoustic guitar tone that is deeper and more "filled out", than the sound of either the microphone or pickup alone.
The Premium Blend's preamp module incorporates a unique flip-top battery compartment for easy access. Levels are set by the master volume and blend controls.
Traditional shelving-style bass and treble, plus a semi-parametric "Contour" EQ are included so you can shape your guitar's tone exactly to taste. With the flick of a switch, you can choose between stereo or mono signal paths for the system's pickup and microphone. This feature expands your options for routing both signals.
Also includes a phase switch and an adjustable notch filter, both essential for fighting feedback.
