The well established and innovative solid wood 16 Series guitars were originally conceived to deliver better sound at lower cost by using a special combination of Martin's proprietary bracing systems. With its scalloped "Hybrid" A frame bracing, the 16 Series is now a favorite for players seeking great sound and good looks in a less expensive guitar. The body is comprised of a solid Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides with a smooth Spanish Cedar neck and Micarta fingerboard. Body binding along with the pearl dot inlays and golden decal logo further refine this instrument into the perfect working musician's guitar. We professionally repaired the small crack on the neck heel which is fully stable and road ready. Martin branded hardshell case included.
