SOLD!!! Martin 00-16E Granadillo Steel String Guitar


Instrument Categories: , ,

The new Martin 00-16E model starts from the classic 00, or Grand Concert body size, but in place of Mahogany or Indian Rosewood for the back and sides uses Granadillo.

Granadillo is also known as Mexican Rosewood or Platymiscium Yucatanum. In Central and South America, it’s often used under the name Macacauba for musical instruments. Its density and hardness help it deliver a bit more top end than true Rosewoods, but still has bottom end and warmth.

The Martin 00-16E features a Sitka Spruce top, with Granadillo for the sides, back and headplate. The neck material can vary slightly and Martin refers to it as ‘Select Hardwood’, often Mahogany or Cedrela. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony.

The E at the end of the Martin 00-16E’s name refers to Electric, and it comes with a Fishman Matrix VT Enhance pickup and preamp system factory installed with the controls tucked under the bass side of the soundhole. The output jack and battery compartment are built into the tail block, out of the way but easily accessible.

With the 00 body, this guitar is well balanced and great for fingerstyle.

Sold with a Martin padded bag.

The 00-16E comes equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance electronics. “
