What a nice studio guitar and generally speaking the Martin D-16RGT Acoustic guitar is! The all solid East Indian Rosewood body and Sitka Spruce top compliment each other and bring out the spark and attack one would expect. The Martin D-16RGT is a part of Martin's 16 Series which was originally developed to deliver high quality sound for a lower price range. The heart of the series is Martin's Hybrid X bracing system which delivers a powerful tone, it became quite a favourite since first introduced to the market. If you search for a guitar with slightly more body and woody tone we suggest checking out the Martin D-16GT. It is essentially the same model only with Mahogany back and sides.
