The Martin D-16GTL Dreadnought is the lefty version of the classic D-16 guitar incorporating modern guitar specifications with famous Martin quality and sound. Crafted with a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, FSC Certified Richlite fretboard and bridge, and hybrid D1 bracing. It features numerous deluxe appointments such as wood herringbone rosette, black binding, tortoise pickguard, chrome-enclosed tuners, and a natural gloss top.
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 Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916.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 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.
