Introduced at Nashville NAMM 2019, the D-16EL Burst compliments a generation of 16 Series guitars that combine aesthetics, performance and value. The guitar features a solid ovangkol construction; an ovangkol top with sunburst and solid satin ovangkol back and sides. The D-16EL Burst is a 14 fret dreadnought body shape with 000 depth. Other appointments include forward shifted scalloped X bracing, a High Performance neck and red faux tortoise binding. Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics come factory installed for exceptional plugged-in tone. This guitar is perfect for the guitarist who is looking for something unique in the Martin line.

Solid Ovangkol Construction
Ovangkol, from Western Africa, is an excellent tone wood and used in the D-16EL Burst's top, back and sides. Ovangkol is similar to East Indian rosewood, known for its rich deep bass response. The guitar's top features a beautiful gloss sunburst while the back and sides are finished in satin.

Dreadnought Body Shape with 000 Depth
The D-16EL Burst features a 14 fret dreadnought body shape but with a thinner 000 depth, ideal for a player desiring the fullness of a dreadnought but with a more modern slimmer feel. The combination of a 14 fret dread and a slimmer 000 depth makes for an extremely comfortable and great sounding Martin!

Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics
The D-16EL Burst comes equipped with Fishman’s Matrix VT Enhance electronics. This system includes the volume and tone controls (VT) in the upper part of the sound hole while the Enhance control (a bridge plate transducer) is located in the lower part of the sound hole. The integrity of the 1/4" jack will not become compromised since the jack and end pin are separated. Battery replacements do not require removal of strings since the battery box is located on the outside of the end block.
