Product Description

The Martin D16GT Acoustic Guitar is a solid wood dreadnought at an affordable price.
With details like herringbone inlays, 2-piece back construction, scalloped (hybrid) bracing, and solid spruce tops, these instruments sound as great as they look. The Martin D16GT features solid mahogany back and sides with black binding and, a gloss Sitka spruce top and satin finish back and sides. The Martin D16GT acoustic guitar includes a hardshell case.

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.

Love at first site
What is your opinion of this product?
I ordered this guitar here at ams, and before even receiving it I decided to send it back. I thought, "that's way too expensive. No way it's gonna be worth what they want for it." For whatever reason I decided to open it up and at least check it out before sending it back. When I first pulled the black Martin hardcase with gold hardware out of the box I knew I had something. It only got better after opening the case to reveal this beautiful guitar. the quality and craftsmanship of Martin simply can't be beaten. Most importantly, it plays and sounds like a dream. Those of you who may be worried about the man made materials.. in my opinion, they in no way are shortcuts to make a cheap guitar. The fretboard is smooth as silk, durable,easy to maintain, and for those that care, environmentally friendly. As far as the man made nut and saddle affecting the sound? I couldn't tell you. All I know is it sounds, looks, and plays great so I don't really care what it's made of. Thanks ams!

Not as great as I hoped.
What is your opinion of this product?
I am disappointed in the way it sounds. It is not warm and resonant. It does not fill the room the room and will not be heard by a group of singers when I lead singing at church. I guess one gets what One pays for. I am comparing this guitar to a Martin dread herringbone, with light strings that I played in 1980. I could not afford it so I bought a solid wood fender herringbone for $350, replaced the light strings with medium ones and had the sound.

A Lot of Guitar For The Money
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is so good! Sounds,plays,looks wonderful.I have played it along side my sons D18 and it misses nothing in comparison. I don't think there is a better American made wood guitar for the money.

The kind of quality expected from Martin! Plays great and has deep warm tones much like a D28!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have played guitars both recreationally and in bands for over 30 years and have owned several Martins. This one is no different! Great quality right out of the box and is ready to play. No set up is even required on Martins unless it is a fluke. This guitar feels and sounds much like a D28 to me. The gloss top, herringbone rosette, and abalone fret board dots dress it up just enough to be beautiful, but the satin back and sides protect the finish from superficial scratches that are commonly found on the gloss finishes. For the price, cannot be happier with this model. Plays great, looks great, and sounds even better. From gospel to bluegrass to country to rhythm rock, it will stand up against any other brand or model and put them to shame.

great sound
Your general opinion of this product.
This is my principal acoustic ...You will not be disappointed..Put some new strings on it and listen to some Martin magic at half the price of a D28 or a D18. Yeah it doesn't boom like a D35 or D28 but it will keep up with them and project great sound. ...can't go wrong with a D16 GT Martin.
