Martin SC-13E Cutaway Guitar & Case, Fishman MX-T Pickup

sku: SC13E
A dramatic new body shape and a 13-fret neck are just the beginning for this innovative offering from Martin. The asymmetrical body shape helps limit feedback. It is similar in size to a 000/OM, but wider and longer.  The neck attachment eliminates the heel for extra-easy access to the upper frets. The new neck shape is designed for speed & comfort.  The body is a beautiful koa veneer with a solid spruce top and a unique new X-brace design. Stage ready, it comes equipped with the Fishman MX-T pickup which includes a tuner.     More Details...
