Martin Dreadnought
The very first dreadnought guitars were designed and crafted by C. F. Martin & Co. in 1916, but marketed in Boston and New York exclusively under the Oliver Ditson brand. Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916. After Ditson went out of business in the early 1930s, Martin introduced the D-1 and D-2 dreadnoughts for standard playing style that would soon become Martin’s iconic D-18 and D-28 models. Over the past 100 years, the Martin dreadnought has helped define what an acoustic guitar can and should be, and subsequently, it has become one of the most popular acoustic guitar designs in the world.

Comments about Martin 16 Series D-16GTL Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Left-Handed:

I searched for months debating on which guitar at a reasonable price could be had. As a performing singer/ songwriter as well as a recording artist. Being mostly acoustic in my approach I checked out Martins, Taylors, Gibsons., among others. After the research I bought the lefty D-16GT. Upon arrival I opened the HSC and was greeted with the beauty and smell of a finely crafted instrument. The D-16GTL is an absolute gorgeous instrument. I tuned it up an proceeded to a love affair with Martin tone. The neck felt right. I am getting used to the medium strings and the sound is unbelievable. I have used it in 3 different show and several jams and everyone is as impressed as I am. The finish is flawless as is the sound. A true Martin. Musicians Friend was excellent in their response and helpful the whole way. It is totally acoustic, but that can be changed by an authorized luthier. I may do that soon. Thank you!!

Comments about Martin 16 Series D-16GTL Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Left-Handed:

I am new to guitar playing was was learning on a Big Baby Taylor, which I thought I enjoyed until I got a Martin D-16GTL. The Martin is so much easier to play that once you start you don't want to stop. I would recommend this guitar to anyone looking to play - you won't regret spending the money.

If you want a high quality guitar at an amazing price, this is it.

Comments about Martin 16 Series D-16GTL Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Left-Handed:

This is the first acoustic I've owned. It arrived in a beautiful case, which is just as high quality as the guitar. I had not played too many acoustics, mainly just electric, but always wanted one. I knew I couldn't go wrong with a Martin. It plays fantastically. It has a real smooth feel to it. The sound is amazing. Whether you want to lightly strum or just want to beat the strings, every note is crystal clear. This guitar is a steal at this price without the case and you get that for free, so even better.
