Overview

A Martin acoustic-electric bass that's ready to play unplugged or plugged in.

The Martin BC-16E acoustic-electric bass is ideal if you love to write and practice on an unplugged bass but also need the option to plug it in to record or play live with your band. The GC-16E includes a solid Sitka spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides and forward-shifted scalloped bracing to deliver deep, thumping Martin tone whether you are plugged in or using the built-in Fishman electronics. It also includes a fast, comfortable neck so you can keep the rhythm section tight.

The BC-16E is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Bass strings.

Note: Due to supply chain issues from COVID-19, Martin cannot guarantee a faux tortoise pickguard. During this time, the guitar you receive may have a black pickguard. We apologize for this inconvenience and as soon as the supply chain issue is resolved, the faux tortoise pickguard will be standard again.

  • Solid Sitka spruce top with East Indian rosewood back and sides
