The Road Series D-13E is the ultimate combination of value, performance and styling. The guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top and solid siris back & sides in a 14-fret Dreadnought. Fashionable appointments grace the Road Series D-13E. They include Mother-of-Pearl pattern fingerboard dots and rosette, a faux tortoise pickguard and a full-gloss body. The Fishman MX-T electronics featuring volume and tone controls and an easy to read sound hole tuner, come standard on all Road Series models.

Solid Spruce Top, Siris Back & Sides
Solid wood construction is the mark of a fine guitar and the D-13E offers solid Sitka spruce top and solid siris back & sides. This combination produces clear mids and highs with excellent bass response.

Fashionable Appointments for 2019
The Road Series models have been reimagined for 2019, like Martin’s Standard Series was in 2018. Mother-of-Pearl pattern fingerboard dots and rosette, plus a faux tortoise pickguard, give this guitar a truly high-end look for the year.

Fishman MX-T Electronics
Fishman's MX-T electronics feature volume & tone controls and an easy to read tuner, all discreetly tucked away in the guitar's sound hole. And when the tuner is engaged, it will auto-mute the output so no one will know you are tuning.

So happy with this purchase


I bought this guitar for mic'ed recording. I am so impressed with the tonal qualities of this instrument. My opinion: I was looking at this one and a Taylor Builders Series, and this one won hands down for less than half the price (I would have paid the Taylor price if it had sounded better...I love their guitars). I didn't buy it for the pickup and electronics, but I plugged it in and it sounds excellent! Almost sounds like an external mic!



Martin never fails to impress.


I have played guitar for 20 years and played many guitars during this time. I have owned Gibson, Martin, Fender, Taylor, and played many other builders. I have sold and traded guitars over this time and I find that I am never disappointed in a Martin. I currently own this D-13E and a D-18 and there are things about this guitar that I prefer even to the D-18. The sound is well balanced with high projection that Martins are known for. The only con I can list the action is somewhat high out of the box for fast playing, however, I believe this is a Martin preference and an easy adjustment to fit your playing style. If you are looking for a more affordable Martin with a big sound, I would definitely give this one a try.



Like it. Good price good sound


Good sound range hi, medium & low. Good neck grip size Strings can be a bit hard but is very doable.



Just what I was looking for!


I use this guitar for living room practice and occasional senior center performances. This guitar is a perfect fit for my needs. It is easy to play, has excellent sound and an appearance that anyone would be proud to use. I would recommend this guitar for anyone in the intermediate range of performer. I am recommending it to my friends and family.



Great Great Great!!!


I have been a performing vocalist/guitarist for over 30 years. I have recently concentrating on my acoustic play. Thanks to Sam Ash, I already own a LL-TA Yamaha, A Guild F-250, and I am now a proud owner of a Martin guitar!!! Its' not a D-28, But it's a GREAT Martin!! Love the built in tuner and the fact that it already has strap buttons installed. Joe at Clearwater has really taken good care of us!! Thanks for all you do at Sam Ash!!
