❌SOLD❌ Martin JC16RE Aura Jumbo Cutaway Steel String, 2007


Instrument Categories: , ,

Built from 2006 to 2011, the Martin JC16RE sports a cutaway Jumbo body with Sitka Spruce top, Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, and a Fishman Aura pickup and preamp as stock.

The Martin JC16RE uses what is for that company an unusual body design, a Jumbo – slightly smaller than a Dreadnought in some dimensions, and larger than an OM or 000 in virtually all body dimensions. The proportions are similar to a classical guitar, so these Jumbo models tend to have a more even tonal representation throughout the harmonic range, plus more volume.

This Martin JC16RE dates to 2007 and was built at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. It pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and head plate, Mahogany for the body blocks and neck, and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. It is in overall good condition with a few dings and dents to the top, and light fret wear.

The original Martin hard shell case is included.

More From The Builder On The Martin JC16RE:

“Martin and Fishman team up on an acoustic-electric for the ages. Aura imaging delivers studio-quality live sound without elaborate miking setups.
The Martin JC16RE Aura Acoustic-Electric Guitar features a polished gloss body, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a fingerboard and bridge crafted from striped ebony. East Indian rosewood back and sides yield a warm, resonant tone.

The JC-16RE comes with Fishman’s onboard Aura system which features sound images derived from studio recordings of the guitar being played into high-end condenser microphones. These sound images can be blended with the Martin Gold+Plus pickup for unequaled studio quality reproduction of the world renowned Martin tone. Aura also includes programmable digital EQ, feedback control and chromatic tuning.
