Martin D16GT - professional-level acoustic with bright, expressive tone!
The Martin D-16GT offers the famous Dreadnought size in Style 16 with the added attraction of a Gloss Top. Style 16 was created to revive the Martin tradition of offering less expensive guitars below Style 18, which still provide a professional-level instrument made with solid tonewoods for the back, sides, and top, supported by full Martin bracing.
A vibrant voice fills the room with the bright, expressive tone one expectes with back and sides made from the mahogany family of exotic tonewoods. And the solid Sitka spruce soundboard backed by scalloped braces makes sure the defined bass notes and projecting midrange have plenty of strength and resonance to support the soaring treble.
A Modified Low Oval profile makes the 1-11/16" solid wood neck effortless to play all the way to the uppermost frets, where the glinting gloss top gives the appearance of a much more expensive D-18, with the addition of a bold herringbone rosette circling the sound hole of the Martin D-16GT.
