The Road Series DC-13E is the ultimate combination of value, performance and styling. The guitar features a solid sitka spruce top and solid mutenye back & sides in a 14-fret Cutaway Dreadnought. The DC-13E offers appointment upgrades to the Road Series that include Mother-of-Pearl pattern fingerboard dots and rosette, a faux tortoise pickguard, and a full gloss body. 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 Wood Construction
Solid wood construction is the mark of a fine guitar, and the DC-13E offers solid Sitka spruce top and solid mutenye back & sides. This configuration will produce an even, warm tone rich in present bass and articulate mids and highs.

Appointment Upgrades 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.

Almost the D28, for the money, can't be beat


This guitar is awesome! Tone is phenomenal for the price point. Compare to the Martin D28, which is the holy grail in their lineup. Builtin tuner is an awesome feature I use regularly, it is integrated into the electronics so it mutes the output when you turn it on, nice that your audience doesn't have to hear you tuning up. Stays in tune well, action on the neck is perfect IMO. You won't be disappointed in this guitar.
