  • Solid Sitka Spruce Top with Hybrid X Scalloped Bracing

  • 20 Fret, Black Richlite Fingerboard

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.

About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

great fantastic
What is your 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.

WORTH TWICE THE MONEY (DON'T TELL MARTIN)
What is your opinion of this product?
Martin wanted to make a more affordable guitar and they have done that. They also have made a guitar that sounds better than any Martin I have ever heard. Well worth the money and it looks great too.

Phenomenal, Outstanding!
Your general opinion of this product.
This guitar is superb in every way. The finish was so well done I had to insist that the guitar shop call the Martin rep and assure me it was real rosewood and not a laminate. It is REAL rosewood. Stunning! Only reason I purchased locally instead of from AMS this time was because I had a Gibson to trade in. But AMS was always my main source, fantastic service and prices.

Good value Martin guitar!
Your general opinion of this product.
Owned numerous acoustic guitars.. and recently sold my Martin D-41 Special to free up some $$ to help pay bills... Decided within a month I was missing that Martin tone, but didn't want to buy something as expensive... also didn't want as much "bling" on my guitar... The D-16RGT is closer to the minimalistic Martin solid-wood guitar... but with the same great Martin tone. I don't like the bright white binding on the fretboard.... too bright... what was Martin thinking? The action on this guitar is fantastic!! I can create bar chords up and down the neck... no problem,.. and it's great for finger style....bends, pull-offs, slides...
