The 16 Series Models

The enhanced visual


appointments common on
some 16 Series models are
usually found on much higher
priced guitars. This now well
established line of guitars were
originally conceived by Martin
to deliver the best possible
sound at the lowest cost
possible by using a special
combination of Martin’s
proprietary bracing systems.
With its innovative “Hybrid”
X-bracing, Martin’s 16 Series
is now the favorite for players
seeking great sound and good
looks in a less expensive guitar.

Prominent features for the


16 Series include solid wood
body, patented neck mortise,
enhanced playability and Martin
quality craftsmanship.
