An asymmetrical body shape offers maximum feedback resistance so you can plug in and play louder than ever before. Enjoy unhindered access to all 20 frets thanks to the patent-pending Sure Align neck system with a comfortable heel-less design. Speaking of comfort, the SC-13E's low-profile velocity neck mimics the playability of electrics, making those leads or long sets a whole lot easier. And since the guitar also comes loaded with Fishman MX-T electronics, you'll have no trouble sounding your best wherever you end up performing.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I saw this beauty, and I fell in love. It plays smoothly, and looks amazing. The back and sides are koa fine veneer, which I was worried about, but I did some research and found that underneath the koa is solid mahogany. Please correct me if Im wrong!! Even so, it plays wonderfully. I ordered it it from zZounds, and recieved it in two days via fed ex, and it arrived undamaged and in perfect shape. I will be a return customer, and my next Martin will be a USA model!
