Featuring a Sitka Spruce top and back and sides with a fine Ziricote Veneer, the Martin D-13E is a powerful-sounding dreadnought at a price that won't break the bank. As the name “Road Series” implies, here’s a hard-working Martin guitar that’s ready to go on tour.
Thanks to its solid-wood top and scalloped X-bracing, the D-13E produces a crisp, clear sound. Its tone is true to the traditional dreadnought design—big and throaty with powerful low end and cutting trebles. With Fishman MX-T electronics under the hood, the D-13E is ready for any stage. Plus, it has a built-in sound-hole tuner that automatically mutes the output so you can tune up any time without a goofy tuner clipped to your headstock.
This Martin D-13E includes a high-quality soft shell case. The Ziricote set used on the back is absolutely stunning, and the Mother-of-pearl pattern rosette is a classy touch, too.
