A state-of-the-art preamp and a superb blend of tonewoods make this guitar perfect on or off the stage.

The back boasts solid ovangkol wings with a solid East Indian rosewood wedge for a superb blend of tonewoods. This Martin guitar also features 5/16" hybrid scalloped "X" bracing for enhanced projection, control, and tonal clarity. The guitar's onboard Roland AP-1 preamp affords you a superb plugged-in experience.

  • Truly GREAT guitar!

    As reviewed by J. Bugajski on 12/21/2009

    I own this guitar, and it's incredible. You cannot let the modern refinements sway your opinion. The Micarta fretboard is never sticky, it's smooth and will never warp or crack. The pre-amp is the best most versital unit available for the gigging musician, reverb, eq, body shape, it does everything it can to help YOU get EXACTLY the sound YOU want from an acoustic. 10 stars!!!

  • Perfect Martin for Me

    As reviewed by brian on 12/2/2009

    I bought this guitar on black Friday to replace my three series Taylor that just broke. I played every nice guitar in the acoustic barn before i made this decision. if you want a great acoustic, check this one out, best sound that i have played. Every ear is different, but to my ear this is the perfect guitar.

  • Under-the-Radar Gem!

    As reviewed by Matt on 6/3/2010

    I just purchased this guitar after a long search that included all the "major" brands. If you've researched the DC-16OGTE, you know there aren't a ton of reviews, and I'm not sure why! This is an amazing instrument! The use of ovangkol, rosewood, and spruce give it an incredibly warm yet bright tone. Couple that with the new Roland preamp, and you've got an extremely versatile guitar. In this price point, I didn't play a guitar that came close.
