The Road Series Martin DC-13E Acoustic-Electric Guitar is perfect for value conscious players looking for a full-sized, solid wood acoustic with the superior Martin tone that has shaped generations of music. Newly updated in 2019, the series features a stunning mother-of-pearl pattern in the fingerboard and rosettes (except the D-12E, which has a Style 28 rosette pattern). All models include Martin's high-performance neck taper for added comfort as well as satin and gloss finish options and a variety of tonewoods. Perhaps the most notable update to the Road Series is the addition of discreet Fishman MX-T electronics with a built-in soundhole tuner that auto mutes the audio output so you can tune up any time without using a pedal. All Road Series guitars come with a Premium Soft Shell Case.
