Many of Martin's legendary 1930s features are brought together in this classic rosewood dreadnought acoustic guitars. Adirondack spruce, long prized for its volume, projection and clarity, is used for the top, as well as the crucial braces supporting the soundboard. The guitar's 1-3/4" modified V-neck, with traditional diamond volute, is crafted from Spanish cedar - a favorite of Martin craftsmen since the 1800s. Other classic features include wood herringbone trim, ivoroid binding, long-pattern diamond and square fingerboard inlays, and a nitrate tortoise colored pickguard. Vintage toner is added to the highly polished lacquer finish to give your Martin guitar an appropriate antique look. Includes case.

Simply the BEST acoustic you will ever own!

By David

from Vancouver, WA

Comments about Martin 16 Series HD-16R Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar is simply amazing. Compared to Taylors and Gibsons of similar price, this one comes out on top. It is beautifully built and plays very well. Pulling the guitar out for the first time, you will notice that it is very well crafted and the factory makes sure that it gets to you in flawless condition. Playing it, you�ۡ���ll notice that it is very smooth and has amazing sustain. Another thing you�ۡ���ll notice is how beautifully loud it is and how wonderful the tone is. It has that deep bass that resonates through the guitar and up your arms, but also has the crisp, but smooth mid-to-high range sounds. The tuners aren�ۡ���t the greatest, but I didn't change them. The guitar is very well built, comparable to the construction of some much more expensive guitars. It comes out of the box playing wonderfully, and it only gets better. You will not be sorry!

Martin HD16ra - excellent

By Chris Dize

from Newark, NJ - the Greater NYC area

Comments about Martin 16 Series HD-16R Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar last week, after patiently spending over 6 months looking for a new acoustic guitar and playing every frickin acoustic I could get my hands on. First, I settled on Martin over Gibson, Takamine, Taylor, Collings, and some other makers because Martin makes a solid quality instrument. Also, to my ear, the Martin sound defines the way an acoustic should sound. They've been doing it for almost 200yrs and it works. Second, I carefully (hours and hours in Guitar Center and other stores) compared this HD16r to the standard D28 and D35, which I think are the most similar in size and material. I also compared it side-by-side to D18 and several OOO models. I have concluded that the Adirondack Spruce top on the HD16r projects a comparable, if not superior, sound. Except for the D18, I think, all the other guitars have the rosewood sides and back, and so I see no difference there, considering that they share the dreadnaught body. The difference is in the Adi top on the HD16. That top simply creates a richer tonal pallet than the Sitka top. I played the D28 and D35 with the HD16 in different rooms and still draw the same conclusion. It must be the top. I note that the HD16r has a hybrid X bracing pattern, but to the extent that this bears on the sound, it appears to be negligible. (If anyone thinks otherwise, please weigh in.) The appointments on the HD16 are very nice. Although I like the binding on the D35 fretboard, that's not a selling point that overcomes, say, the Adi top on the HD16. Now, after all my research on the different dreadnaught styled guitars by Martin, I can't figure out why more people aren't raving about this guitar. Is there something I'm missing? I don't think so. I've been over the guitar with a fine tooth comb and I can't find any hidden defects or shortcomings. Maybe there is none. It is baffling, however, that Martin does not even appear to promote this guitar (there wasn't even a pic of it in their product catalogue), which makes me wonder whether the line will have a short lifespan. (Of course, the D16 line has been around fifty years, so that's probably not going anywhere.) That said, I can't find a bad review about this guitar online. It's difficult to predict the resale value, say, if I decide to sell ten years from now, which is something that you have to consider when buying any instrument. Of course, this could be a lifer for me. I have one or two lifers in my collection right now.
