A smaller-bodied version of the D-16GT dreadnought, the Martin 000-16GT Acoustic Guitar offers the same specs and build but in an instrument with an auditorium shape, with a short scale length and modified low oval neck profile, making it comfortable for players with smaller hands. An all-solid construction, the body of the Martin 000-16GT Acoustic Guitar consists of a solid sitka spruce top & solid genuine mahogany back & sides. Though small the 000-16GT is still loud with the spruce top offering plenty of projection, with a crisp, clear sound, enforced by the mahogany body, which also brings extra focus to the mid range.
The guitar’s top has been strengthened with a hybrid ''X'' scalloped bracing pattern with solid sitka spruce braces. The top has also been finished in polished gloss, while the back & sides enjoy a satin finish. The guitar is finished off nicely with a bold herringbone rosette and a tortoise colour pickguard.
Ensuring strength and stability, the select hardwood neck of the Martin 000-16GT Acoustic Guitar has been joined to the body with a dovetail neck joint. Carved to a modified low oval profile, for improved playability, the neck of the guitar has been topped with a 20-fret, black richlite fingerboard with a width measurement of 1-11/16'' at the nut and 2-1/8'' at the twelfth fret. This lies between a white corian nut and a black richlite bridge.
This leads to the Martin 000-16GT Guitar’s solid, square taper headstock with its solid East Indian rosewood headplate and raised gold foil logo. This is equipped with a set of chrome-enclosed tuners with small buttons.
