The Martin D-16GT Dreadnaught shaped acoustic guitar is loaded with a blend of awesome modern and vintage touches making it an instant classic for not a serious amount of money. Made in the Nazareth Pennsylvania CF Martin Guitar factory, the D16GT Acoustic Guitar offers a Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides for a classic sounding acoustic guitar, perfect for singing along with.
The focused tones of mahogany lend themselves to vocals beautifully and a mahogany Dread is a thing to appreciate as a singer. It's not boomy or bass heavy, leaving articulate sounding chords out in the open to find your voice over. An X Bracing Pattern is present and they are scalloped for maximum tone and volume. The scalloping process involves removing small amounts of wood from the braces which allow for a more vibrant and resonant playing experience. A modified low oval neck profile carved from a piece of selected hardwood is then topped with a certified Richlite Fingerboard, an environmentally friendly product, deemed a Sustainable Wood Certified Part. The bridge is also made from the same sustainable wood product. Honestly, we can't tell the difference between this stuff and ebony. It's a seriously impressive product and a step in the right direction as far as the environment is concerned.
