The Martin BC-16E acoustic-electric bass combines comfort, styling, and playability. Whether you're a performer in an acoustic setting or write music on your couch, unplugged this bass delivers. If you also need the option to plug-in, Martin has you covered with Fishman's Matrix VT Enhance electronics. Comfort abounds with its thin 0000 depth cut away body and it's fast, comfortable neck. The BC-16E is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Bass strings.

The combination of a Sitka spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, and forward shifted scalloped X bracing delivers deeply rich Martin bass tone whether you're sitting on the couch or plugged in using the built-in Fishman electronics.
