Martin acoustic-electric with rosewood back and sides, spruce top and Fishman electronics.

The Martin Special 16 Style rosewood dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar provides full, resonant tone with the luxury of onboard electronics. Crafted with solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, the Special 16 Style Rosewood dreadnought rings out with a bold, balanced voice. Its gloss spruce top further enhances projection and tonal clarity across the frequency range. Martin's High Performance Neck offers a comfortable feel along the fretboard, ideal for intricate solos or rhythmic strumming.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics Open Up Performance Potential

The Fishman Matrix VT Enhance pickup system gives you complete control over your amplified tone. Shape your sound with the intuitive volume and tone controls, blending the crispness of the undersaddle transducer pickup with the fullness of the soundboard transducer. The built-in tuner ensures you're in tune before stepping into the spotlight. Whether at an open mic, on stage at your local music venue or recording an album, the Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics provide all the power and flexibility you need.

Solid Wood Construction Resonates With Full, Bold Tone

The all-solid wood construction of the Special 16 Style Rosewood dreadnought, including East Indian rosewood back and sides and a gloss spruce top, produces full-bodied tone with rich overtones. The rosewood back and sides impart a warm, bassy foundation, while the spruce top adds clarity and projection. Strung with Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 light gauge strings, this guitar rings out with a voice that fills any room.

High Performance Neck Plays With Ease

Martin's High Performance Neck features a low-profile shape and tapered headstock for a comfortable feel in your fretting hand.
