Martin 16 Series
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.

great fantastic
What is your overall opinion of this product?
this d16rgt is more than i had hoped for really im serious this guitar is awesome i purchased a d35 last year from ams and now the d16rgt and since i got the d16 i havent played the d35. i love my d35 but this new guitar is just unreal i almost bought a d18 and read a review on the d16 rgt rosewood and thats why i decided on the rgt. its not as pretty as the d35 but i just cant believe the sound of this thing for 1500. i dont know about the d16 hog back and sides but the rosewood is a sure thing if your lookin for that all around bossy sound that martins seem to have mastered this guitar will not dissappoint you. i promise. i put a primevibe on my d35 about 50 hrs. out of the 100 hr. recommened time. and it did pull some bass out of the guitar. but it also heated the top and cracked my new guitar. primevibe would not fix the guitar so my warranty did. even after using a seasoner something to alter the age of the top martin still stood behind their product and repaired it.
