Video Review: Martin D-16E (2019)

D-16E specifications include: Dreadnought body shape with 000 side depth; solid Sitka spruce top with gloss finish; solid East Indian  back and sides with satin finish; scalloped 1/4″ braces; long-scale High Performance Neck with Modified Low Oval profile and High Performance taper (1-3/4″ at the nut, 2-18″ at the 12th fret) on the solid ebony fingerboard; 2-5/32″ string spacing at the solid ebony bridge; Antique White body binding; faux tortoise shell pickguard; Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics with onboard volume and tone control, and Enhance blender for undersaddle pickup and bridge plate sensor. 

The shallow body greatly increases resistance to feedback when plugged-in, while maintaining the look of a classic Martin Dreadnought.
