Rating and Reviews: Martin 00016GT Guitar

The hybrid "X" scalloped bracing pattern and smaller body shape of the 00016GT gives this Martin excellent clarity and projection.

Overall: I had been shopping for a good acoustic for awhile. I was trying to choose between an 000-18 and an 000-28, but I was being open minded and playing just about everything Martin, Taylor and Gibson had. After a long day of store hopping, I stopped into a local shop and they had two 000-16GT's on the wall. They played fine, but the sound was what got me. One of them, in particular, just had that ring to it. It was chimey piano sounds all around, with a little of that spruce top sizzle, great balance and a price that let me buy it then instead of window shopping for another few months. I don't regret it a bit. The guitar sounds wonderful and being solid wood will only sound better with time. Construction and finish are top-notch. It's subtle but pretty. Looking forward to many years playing this guitar. Thanks CFM!

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Overall: A very comfortable somewhat (sightly) smaller body and my Martin Concert Cutaway (GPCPA4)... buy very Big on sound. This guitar projects with a sort of "mellow" clarity and a beautiful tone. Not too bassy... because of the smaller body it is not overbearing on the bass end... which I like. I bought this because I really wanted a pure acoustic without any electronics at all. I prefer to mic my guitar. I am very glad I made this purchase. There is not lot of "bling" on this guitar - but in its simplicity it is quite beautiful... and hey, it's a Martin. And, it's affordable (thanks to zZounds payment plan!) I am a singer/songwriter and this guitar has a crystal clear sound with a nice "punch" to it. I am a finger-style player and the neck and action play almost perfectly right out of the box. (I have never bought a guitar that didn't need some kind of neck adjustment) - I tune down a 1/2 step so I put 13-56 Martin strings on it... WOW - what a beautiful "chimey bell" tone it has!!! (I will be adjusting the neck only because I prefer a slightly higher action than what it is currently at... and this is not a complaint... it's just preference) Martin did a fantastic job on this guitar. Comes with a real nice solid case... oh... and it smells wonderful. p.s... I ordered it on a Friday and received it by noon on the following Tuesday - WOW... thanks Zounds...

Overall: Great guitar and more comfortable to play than my larger Martin. After having the action adjusted, it plays like a seasoned instrument and sounds like one too. Service from Zzounds was prompt and the guitar arrived in great shape!

Overall: After lackluster service from another eTailer to obtain this beautiful guitar, I ordered it from ZZSounds, it was at my door 3 days later. I love the guitar. I am a new guitarist, but wanted to get a guitar that would grow with me and sound better and better and last forever. I think I chose well. The only think that wasn't great upon arrival was that the strings appeared to be old. After changing those out it sounded and felt sweet!! I had been reading about the smell of martin guitars and was curious. The smell is aluring. I think I pick it up more often unconsciously because of it. It sort of smells like a cigar shop.
