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: satin-finished Indian rosewood back and sides provide rich bass overtones, while the gloss-finish Sitka spruce top ensures even, balanced projection. Finishing touches include 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!
