The Martin 00-16E Granadillo is built to provide you with the finest playing experience possible. The beautiful granadillo back and sides give extra bass response while maintaining delicate overtone sensitivity. Its sitka spruce top adds balance and extra projection to the guitar’s tone. You’ll be blown away by the Fishman Matrix VT electronics that provide clear, balanced tone. Like every all-wood Martin guitar, the 00-16E is Plek’d for your playing comfort before it leaves their facility. In addition to beautiful body woods, this guitar has comforts like open-gear tuners and a Low Oval neck. Martin’s 00-16E is a superb blend of great tone, good looks, and creature comforts that any player will love.
The Martin 00-16E has a punchy, powerful tone, thanks to a great tonewood combination of granadillo and Sitka spruce. Sometimes known as Amazon rosewood, granadillo hails from Central America. Characterized by its distinctive striped grain and great low-end response, granadillo pairs well with the Sitka spruce top. Sitka spruce is known for its straight grain and punchy, resonant tone. Thanks to the combination of great tonewoods, the Martin 00-16E Granadillo excels in low frequencies without losing its note clarity.
Fishman electronics reproduce accurate tones

You get an acoustic-electric guitar that sounds just as great as it would if it was miked up.
High Performance neck profile
