Martin has you ready for the studio or the stage with this affordable, all solid wood 16 series Grand Auditorium! Classic design meets modern playability here: gloss-finish Sitka spruce top for warm balanced tone, light satin-finish mahogany back & sides for punchy projection with a herringbone rosette, faux tortoise pickguard & binding, and mother-of-pearl dots on the fingerboard. Innovative design features like the high-performance tapered neck and deep cutaway allow for easy access all the way up the neck, while the thinner Grand Performance body depth (4 1/8") helps bring out the mids for an instrument that's easier to record and mix live. Everything is finished off with the onboard Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT2 pickup system, for a guitar that is versatile and road-ready. Priced with sturdy soft-shell case!
