I am absolutely in love with this guitar. Everything is just perfect. The fit, finish, setup, tone, etc.... PERFECT. I used to own a Martin 000-28 and I swear this 000-16E is every bit it’s match. The wood grain and color of the Granadillo back and sides is very pretty. Granadillo sounds very similar to rosewood, by the way. The spruce top has some snazzy-looking figuring. The ebony fretboard is smooth and lovely. Perfect fretwork. This neck profile is sooooo comfy!! I’ve owned a bunch of guitar over the years, and this Martin is right at the top of the list.
Solid lows, pronounced mids, sparkly highs. Works equally well for strumming and finger style.
Ease of Use
Super-comfy neck profile. Plays like buttah.
Built like a Martin. Old-school craftsmanship at its finest.
Martin customer service is a pleasure to deal with. Nice folks.
The Wow Factor
It’s beautiful, it plays like a dream, and it sounds glorious.
I’ve been playing for 30 years.
A little bit of everything.
