    The Martin D-16E Mahogany offers a dreadnought shape body with 000 depth for playing and performing comfort (just 4-1/8" deep vs the standard dreadnought depth of 4-7/8"). Built with all solid woods, it has appealing appointments including a herringbone rosette.

    PICKGUARD NOTE:  Sept. 2021
    Due to a shortage of faux tortoise pickguard material, this model will be built with a black pickguard as necessary.
