The Dreadnought body size is famous for its strong bass response, prodigious volume and powerful projection and consequently, this D-13E is a guitar that almost doesn’t need a pickup to be heard. This version has a solid Sitka spruce top and ziricote fine veneer back and sides. Ziricote is a Central American tonewood that has dramatic figure and color variation. The back and sides are layered, with a khaya, or African mahogany, core sandwiched between outer veneers of ziricote. The neck features Martin’s high-performance neck taper for easy playability; a hand-rubbed neck finish; and an FSC® Certified Richlite® fingerboard and bridge. It has Fishman MX-T electronics with a built-in soundhole tuner that auto mutes the audio output so you can tune up any time without using a pedal. This guitar comes with a Premium Soft Shell Case.
