Martin 000-16GT Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
  • Beautiful, solid tonewoods
  • Martin craftsmanship
  • Ages with grace
Beautiful, solid tonewoods

Martin knows that the secret to a great sounding guitar is the wood it's made from. That's why the 000-16GT is made with solid mahogany back and sides, and a solid Sitka spruce top. The tone is full, balanced, and speaks loud and clear. The 000-16GT is ideal for recording, and you'll love having one in your studio.

Martin craftsmanship

There's a reason Martin is one of the best-known and widely-respected guitar manufacturers in the world. The 000-16GT shows off Martin's attention to detail with its bold herringbone rosette, Style 28 inlays and black boltaron binding. Other, less-noticeable details are the hybrid "X" scalloped bracing (which helps create the distinctive Martin tone) and the extremely well-fit dovetail neck joint that maximizes the guitar's ability to vibrate.

Ages with grace

The Martin 000-16GT will sound beautiful right out of the case. Give it a few years of love and care, and you'll be astounded at how the tone matures over time. Any quality guitar made from premium tonewoods will age as the guitar is played over the years. You can expect that the solid mahogany back and sides, and the sold Sitka spruce top will gain richness and harmonic complexity as the years go by.

Martin 000-16GT Acoustic Guitar Features:
  • Martin quality and premium tonewoods make this a great-sounding, great-playing guitar
  • Color: Gloss Natural
  • Modified low-oval neck shape plays smooth and is a nice balance between fatter and thinner necks
  • The mahogany and spruce will enhance in tone with age

Awesome guitar . Beautiful too

I have owned many guitars and played a lot!! This guitar sounds better than a lot of $3,000+ guitars! It has such a deep sound. Perfect fit too. Couldn't be happier. Came in 2 days! Nice case too.

Great acoustic!

I have a couple nice electric guitars and really wanted to get a nice acoustic. I wanted to get a well built, good guitar that I wouldn't regret purchasing but I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg for it. I tried a couple of dreadnoughts and they were just too big. I took a chance and ordered this one without knowing how it played, etc. I love it! The size is perfect and it plays great. It seems to be very high quality and has plenty of natural woods and no laminates. It doesn't have the big sound of the dreadnoughts but it's plenty clean and crisp. It came with a TKL case which is perfect for storing/protecting it. I'm so pleased I waited for Sweetwater to get me one of these!

My New Martin

Absolutely the best acoustic I have ever owned. Martin lives up to its standard and reputation. After registration they even mailed me a New Owners card with my full name and the serial number of my Martin. Oh, in case you were wondering, the Martin Guitar does smell wonderful. It is the Spanish Cedar they use for the Purfing.

Simply Amazing

I have owned one of these for 4 years. The intonation and playability is oustanding. I sold my OMJM shortly after owning this guitar for only a few weeks. Under a good mic she'll shine just as much as her glass top.
