Introduced at Nashville NAMM 2019 and part of the next generation 16 series, the 000-16EL is the big brother to the 00-16EL, guitars that combine outstanding playability in a small package, along with style and value. The guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Granadillo back and sides. The 000-16EL is a 14 fret 000, which features a short 24.9" scale paired with a High Performance neck. Other appointments include antique white binding, scalloped X bracing and an ebony fingerboard and bridge. Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics come standard for superior plugged-in tone. The 000-16EL is the perfect choice for the discerning musician who seeks traditional styling with modern playability and function.

Next Generation 16 Series
The next generation 16 Series guitars feature all solid wood construction, a High Performance neck, satin back and sides, gloss top, scalloped X bracing, antique white binding, ebony fingerboard and bridge and Fishman electronics. The 000-16EL, like the 00-16EL, features Granadillo back and sides, a wood known for prominent bass response and bell-like overtones. The top wood is Sitka spruce from the Pacific Northwest, known for its clear highs.

Outstanding Playability in a Small Package
Like the 00-16EL, the 000-16EL is slightly larger and part of the new 16 Series. The Martin 000 body size is the same an OM but with a shorter 24.9" scale. A shorter scale translates into less tension on the strings and is perfect for those who seek a lighter touch and ease of bending of strings. Couple this with a High Performance neck and you have playability that is second to none.

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics
The 000-16EL, like other models in the new 16 Series comes equipped with Fishman's Matrix VT Enhance electronics. This system features the volume and tone controls (VT) in the upper part of the sound hole while the Enhance control is located in the lower part of the sound hole. The 1/4" jack end pin and are separated which ensures protection of the 1/4" connection. No issues with removal of strings since the batter box is located in the exterior of the end block.
