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 Originally made for Hawaiian slide playing style, the very first dreadnought made was a Model 222 shipped to Ditson in August of 1916.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 Left-Handed Acoustic Guitar:

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.

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

    I would consider myself somewhere between Novice and Experienced as a guitar player. I've played off and on over many years first with an Epiphone and then a Yamaha. While those instruments served me well for my musical needs I always wanted a nice Martin. After owning this guitar for a while I'm not the least disappointed. It's fun and easier to play. I would highly recommend this guitar if it's in your price range, or, maybe a little over. Try catching a sale and save a few bucks.
