Overview

The dreadnought-size 16 Series Martin DC-16GTE Acoustic-Electric Guitar boasts a Venetian cutaway with a satisfyingly deep body. The DC-16GTE guitar's shape means great player comfort and the extra depth contributes presence, projection, and power to the guitar's tone. Includes case.

The DC-16GTE guitar's solid Sitka spruce soundboard is polished to a high gloss while the genuine mahogany back and sides are finished to a soft satin luster. Martin appointments include a bold herringbone rosette, black Micarta fingerboard and bridge, black Boltaron top and back bindings, chrome-enclosed tuning machines and Style 28 bridge pins.

The Martin DC-16GTE comes with the Fishman Matrix Infinity onboard electronics system. The Fishman Matrix Infinity is an undersaddle acoustic guitar pickup and preamp system that delivers transparent and natural sound allowing your instrument's natural tone to be heard in amplified performances. This Fishman pickup system is noted for providing crystal clear string response, balance, and sensitivity. The pickup senses the motion of the entire saddle, providing superb string-to-string balance and great sensitivity to the guitar strings and guitar top. The Fishman Matrix Infinity features switchable voicing and full volume and tone control with minimal tone coloration.

Ill start off by saying this guitar was a great buy, you simply cannot rely on a better name than the martins. The dc16 sounds amazing slightly bass thick but the mahogony makes those lows so warm, but if your worried about the highs or mids lacking forget about it this thing does it all and pleases the ear while doing so. The electronics in this guy are solid dont have to worry about all your electronics going ballistic in the middle of a show. Great product and martin always holds its quality to a high standard and martins resale value is reason enough to not worry about its generous tag.

Great Guitar.

By Jake

from Flower Mound, Texas

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is one of the nicest Martins made (in its price rang, and in the entire Martin field) It has a Wonderful to tone. The convenient cutaway makes it easy to play the hole rang of the neck. The Roland electronics are an excellent feature. The neck is extremely fast which is really nice. The craftsmanship is AMAZING. It was made so smoothly. This guitar is great to preform with. GREAT guitar.

easy to play

By choccobo

from oakland, ca

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I actually think this guitar is easier to play than my taylor 714. Its got great string action. I do have to re-tune when using a trigger capo, but its a minor issue and honestly should be tuning it anyways in that situation. Over all a great buy.

Excellent all around stage guitar

By Jim

from Colonia, NJ

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is one of Martin's best deals going. Slightly bass heavy as a Dreadnought should be, the cutaway provides access up the neck and the Roland electronics are excellent. The fit and finish are up to Martin's high standards and this is a really nice player. The Richlite fingerboard is very nice and the neck is a comfortable mod low oval making for a very fast neck.

Great Tone and Feel

By Jim O'Brien

from Chadds Ford, PA

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Personally, I don't see any reason to buy a more expensive guitar. My Martin includes the Mahogany back and sides which, I think, produces an appealing deep base, which I don't find in some of the competitive brands. Mids and highs are not lost and contrast beautifully with the base tones. The fretboard is comfortable and the overall quality is excellent. You won't be disappointed with this guitar unless you prefer a very bright sound, which might take you in another direction.

Great axe

By Dustin Lafferty

from Tacoma, Wa

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Great for live situations. I like it better than the higher end guitars I have owned because the cutaway and the electronics are very user friendly. This is a working musicians best friend. Live, the auto feedback and phase buttons are vital for a full, rich sound. Nice bear claw on the one I bought. Can't go wrong with this guitar.

This is truely the nicest guitar I have ever owned. I have always loved playing the Acoustic guitar and I have played them all from Fender to Takamine and this Martin is the best for the price by far. True American craftsmanship and the playability and sound is top shelf for the price. you will be hard pressed to find nicer Guitar.

Gret buy!

By David D. Stewart

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I played most of the guitars at Guitar Center then went to the rest of the music stores in Austin. Ended up and back at Guitar Center where I not only got a great guitar but the best price also. If you are in search of new Martin this is the one. Plays great and has a great sound with on board affects to match. And of course you get the best price and service at Guitar Center

Deep tone

Comments about Martin 16 Series DC-16GTE Dreadnought Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have this guitar. It is truly the best sounding acoustic ever. The bass sound that comes out of this thing sounds much better than the perty ones costing twice as much.
