This well-established and innovative all solid wood 16 Series was originally conceived and developed as an experiment in delivering better sound without higher cost by using a combination of our proprietary bracing systems, called Hybrid
X-bracing, on a solid wood instrument. Martin succeeded, and the guitar has become a longtime Martin favorite.
Standard features for the 16 Series generally include solid wood top, back and sides, patented neck mortise, and Hybrid
X-bracing. Enhanced visual appointments common on the SP or Special 16 Series models usually are found on much higher priced models, including full body gloss finish, abalone pearl rosette, and abalone fingerboard inlays.
