  • Happy With My Choice

    As reviewed by Cameron on 8/4/2009

    I recently purchased a Martin D16GT and love the tone and playability of this guitar! I chose it over a Gibson Songmaker that was similarily priced and while I liked the Gibson playabilty, tone, and quality,it really was no match when compared with the Martin D16. Besides great tone and playability, I wanted a solid body guitar that was affordable and was made in America. I haven't had this guitar for very long but have already fallen in love with it. I'm very happy with my choice.

  • I love this Guitar!

    As reviewed by JD on 12/2/2009

    I play electric so this is my really first acoustic. I spent days and hours at music stores searching for a Martin I wanted but each one had a different feel and sound. I did not want to spend the money on this guitar because it was over my budget but I am sure glad I did. The feel and sound is amazing.It has a nice warm but punchy sound which is what I was looking for. The neck, action is perfect and so easy to play. This is a USA made model Martin not a Mexican made one. I will be installing Fishman electronics in the future. This is no doubt and excellent guitar for beginner or advanced guitarist. Buy one you'll be glad you did. I am

  • Great Martin sound, new materials and good price

    As reviewed by Bltprf502 on 11/12/2007

    Nice guitar! Not all the same materials used to make a classic D-18 or D-28, but they did a great job on the sound... Very nice. The bolt on neck and micarta fret board is great for durability and outdoors. I use this guitar as a travel guitar as I travel a great deal and want a solid wood guitar to play while on the road. They is when I get to play most. I also own a D-18 which I love, but does not take me away from playing the D-16 GT. I strongly reccomend this guitar for any type of acoustical guitar needs.
