A Dreadnought with a difference - The D-16E now at Peach Guitars.
I absolutely love this guitar. It was first featured at the 2017 NAMM show and i immediately noticed that this model felt different to to other Dreadnought's within the Martin range and i soon twigged that it had a thinner body. The guitar has the 000 body depth, so it feels a lot more comfortable when sitting down with the guitar, to me anyway! It also has a modified low oval neck with a high performance taper, which means it's an absolute pinch to play.
Cosmetically, Martin have made a few changes from the previous 16 series range, one of which is super sharp lookin' silver binding. It kind of has that "flip-flop" hot-rod car paint vibe to it, as it looks like it changes between white and silver, depending where the light is shining on the binding.
Check out the satin/brushed pearl open geared tuners. They work great and they look cool!
Constructed with a Sitka spruce top and sycamore back and sides. The D-16E still has the classic Martin tone but will undoubtedly appeal to fans of other acoustic guitar brands. It has a little more of modern voice and the playability is as good as anything else out there.
As an added bonus, the guitar is equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance electronics, which is a great sounding 'plug and play" pickup but sounds as good as any other market-leading acoustic guitar pickups.
Comes with Martin hardshell case.
