Martin Grand J-16E 12 String
All of our Martin Grand J-16E 12 String guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, come with a Martin padded gig bag and Martin Lifetime Warranty.
The Grand J16E 12 String offers a new design in acoustic-electric twelve-string guitars that is built from the ground up to sound spectacular from the concert stage and the recording studio. It features Martin’s Grand Jumbo body shape with a 17” top width. But it is paired with their 000 side depth, just like their best-selling D-16E Rosewood, D-16E Mahogany, and GPC-16E Mahogany. The shallower shape makes it more comfortable to play and more user-friendly when recording or playing at high volumes through large sound systems via the on-board Fishman VT Enhance electronics.
The beauty of non-stop room-filling harmony leaps from this guitar, thanks to the courses of double strings, tuned an octave apart. Is there anything better? Not if you love the sound of a twelve-string guitar there isn’t. And Martin’s Grand J-16E sounds rich and bassy down below and colorfully complex up top, but never too woofy and never too bright.
The all-solid tonewood construction includes East Indian back and sides and a Sitka spruce top. They give this Grand J-16E 12 string a lush voice that is enriched by its forward-shifted scalloped bracing and the extra tone-producing energy of a long-scale neck. You’ll find it sounds absolutely huge, but doesn’t feel or play that way, thanks to that reduced body depth and a neck that has a smaller profile and sleeker fingerboard taper than earlier Martin 12 String models. You know you’ve been longing to add a wonderful twelve-string guitar to your gigging and recording arsenal. The Martin Grand J-16E 12 String is the one you’ve been waiting for!
