    Product Description

    The SC-13E is the most modern and innovative acoustic guitar that Martin has ever made. Boasting a contemporary offset cutaway shape and a unique, patented 'Sure Align' neck system that both enable effortless access to its higher frets — the Martin SC-13E Special is a bold new instrument which seamlessly combines comfort and easy playability with balanced, clear sonics; making it suitable for any genre!

    Key Features

    • S-13 Fret Cutaway Shape — This alternative, offset body design has allowed Martin to create a deeper cutaway that removes the heel; allowing full access to every fret without sacrificing any of the full-bodied tone that's synonymous with their instruments.
    • Sitka Spruce Top — An industry-standard top wood that generates a broad dynamic range with great articulation; suitable for anything from aggressive strumming to soft finger-picking.
    • Ziricote Fine Veneer Back & Sides — A gorgeous timber that yields a big and sustain-rich sound with warm overtones and crisp mids.
    • Low-Profile Velocity Neck — Ergonomically accommodates your hand as you move up the neck; giving you the comfort and playability of an electric guitar.
    • 'Sure Align' Neck System — Features a linear dovetail neck joint that allows for easy adjustments to the string action and neck tension.
    • Ebony Fingerboard & Bridge — A dark and silky-smooth material that adds brightness and snap into the tonal equation.
    • LR Baggs Element Electronics — Advanced under-saddle pickup system which ensures that the instrument's unplugged voice is captured and projected accurately through a connected PA system, amplifier or mixing desk. It also cleverly rejects string attack to minimise "quack".
    • Nickel Open Gear Tuners — Reliable and precise with a cool, contemporary look.
    • Martin Soft Shell Case — Included with the SC-13E Special, this hybrid gig bag/case is lightweight and securely protects the instrument from harm.
