L.R. Baggs Element electronics in a dynamic gloss-finished design.

The Martin SC-13E Special Road acoustic-electric guitar blends comfort and playability with the Fishman electronics you need for amplified performance. Designed for players who want the feel of an electric guitar with the rich, balanced acoustic tone of a Martin, the SC-13E features an offset S-shaped body and low-profile neck that lets your hands move smoothly up and down the neck. The L. . Baggs Element pickup system lets you sculpt a variety of amplified tones, from sparkling and clear to warm and rich. With a satin-finished spruce top and ziricote back and sides, the SC-13E pumps out balanced tone with plenty of richness, warmth and projection perfect for the stage.

Offset Body Shape Provides Comfort and Easy Playability

The SC-13E has an offset, sloped S-shaped body that rests comfortably against your body in playing position. The ergonomic contours and thoughtfully placed arm and rib rests let your strumming arm move freely while providing a secure seating for the guitar against your torso. This makes playing for long periods effortless and fatigue-free. The sloped shoulder design brings the upper frets closer, giving your hand easy access to notes up and down the neck.

Low-Profile Neck Allows Effortless Access to Higher Frets

Martin designed the SC-13E's neck to feel fast and smooth, just like an electric guitar. The low-profile shape fills your hand evenly as you play, keeping your wrist in a natural position. This allows quick, accurate movement up and down the neck to reach even the highest notes with less effort. The smooth satin finish glides under your fingers for lightning fast leads and solos. Even when playing complex chords, the low action and comfortable neck shape reduce hand fatigue.

LR Baggs Element Pickup System Delivers Versatile Amplified Tones

The SC-13E comes equipped with the LR Baggs Element active undersaddle pickup system that lets you plug into an amp or PA system with ease. It has volume and tone controls right on the guitar, giving you command over your amplified tone. Dial in sparkling highs and tight lows for solos and lead lines that cut through the mix. For rhythm playing, warm up the EQ for more body and richness. The Element faithfully captures the SC-13E's balanced acoustic tone, with the flexibility to shape your sound for any amplified performance situation.

Satin-Finished Spruce Top Creates Bright, Balanced Acoustic Sound

Martin chose premium solid spruce for the SC-13E's top wood. Lightweight and resonant, spruce produces full, balanced tone with crisp highs and tight bass. The satin finish allows the wood to vibrate freely, pumping out volume and sustain. Strummed rhythm chords ring out with clarity and definition. Picking single notes delivers articulate tone and impressive projection perfect for solos. Spruce's balanced frequency response means every note sings out with the SC-13E.
