Balanced tone and projection with a high-performance neck.


The Martin D-16E acoustic electric guitar is a performance ready dreadnought that sings with beautifully balanced tone. It features a solid spruce top, rosewood back and sides, and Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT2 electronics. The D-16E's dreadnought body pumps out full, articulate sound with superb projection. Its comfortable, modified, low, oval neck profile and 25.4"" scale length provide a familiar feel for most players. The D-16E is an all-solid dreadnought that delivers iconic Martin tone and quality.

Solid Sitka Spruce Top Radiates Rich Tone

The D-16E's solid spruce top generates balanced, resonant tone with shimmering highs and tight lows. As the top ages, it opens up and becomes more complex. Spruce is a prized tonewood for its strength, lightweight nature and ability to produce volume.

Rosewood Back and Sides Pump Out Robust Sound

East Indian Rosewood back and sides complement the spruce top, adding warmth, depth and sustain. Rosewood produces a balanced timbre that suits many musical styles. Its dense grain helps project sound while also absorbing unwanted overtones.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT2 Pickup Captures Natural Acoustic Tone

The Fishman pickup system captures the D-16E's rich acoustic voice for amplified performance or recording. It features an under-saddle piezo pickup and sound hole-mounted preamp with volume and tone controls. The Matrix VT delivers the guitar's true tonal nuances and natural resonance through an amplifier or PA system.

Premium Components and Time-Tested Martin Craftsmanship

The D-16E features a modified low, oval neck profile, rosewood fretboard and bridge, chrome tuners and a durable hard-shell case. Martin's time-honored mortise and tenon neck joint and dovetail body joint ensure stability and tone. Each D-16E undergoes Martin's rigorous quality testing and setup before leaving the factory.
