C.F. Martin & Co. is excited to revamp the 16 Series line for 2017. The Americana Series 16 Series instruments were crafted with the contemporary guitarist in mind, and were specifically designed to stand out in the crowded world of acoustic guitars. The tonewoods used for the Americana Series 16 Series all hail from right here in the United States, and were chosen to give these instruments a sound that is truly different. Visual appointments such as silver binding, a multi-stripe orange top inlay & rosette, and mother-of-pearl diamond and square fretboard inlays provide a unique aesthetic touch while performance features including a comfortable High Performance neck taper, satin-pearl-finished Schaller GrandTune open-gear tuning machines, and onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics make this a great instrument for recording or performing.

If you love the sonic horsepower of the dreadnought shape but find it to be a bit too bulky for your comfort, the DC-16E from Martin is an outstanding choice. A truly distinct feature for a Martin, the dreadnought cutaway body of the DC-16E features a thinner 000 depth for added comfort without sacrificing the projective dreadnought voice. The DC-16E is made using a Sitka spruce top with seldom-used sycamore back & sides, which produces a beautiful top-end shimmer with a nice, full low-end response. Other features include a cutaway design for easy upper-fret access, select hardwood neck capped with a smooth-playing ebony fingerboard, a bone nut, an ebony modern belly bridge with a compensated white Tusq saddle, forward shifted scalloped X bracing, and high-quality Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics for superior plugged-in performance. Includes hardshell case.
