Martin may be known for their six-string guitars, but their expertise is put to good use on basses as well. The BC-16E acoustic bass is a great tool for songwriting but thanks to the built-in Fishman electronics, can be put to good use in a band or recording context as well. Now bass players can enjoy some of Martin's high quality USA craftsmanship that's captivated guitar players for centuries.
The BC-16E features rosewood back and sides which complements bass tones nicely thanks to its rich low end and emphaised high end, giving you a thumping bass tone with great note definition. The rosewood back and sides are paired with a Sitka spruce which has broad dynamic range which accommodates the bass frequencies well.
Fishman Matrix VT Enhance Electronics
This guitar is ready to perform thanks to the built-in Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics. The Enhance undersaddle pickup is designed to bring out the dynamics and percussiveness in your playing. You can blend this in or out with the discreet, soundhole mounted preamp that also features volume and tone controls for shaping your sound. Whether you're performing live into an amp/PA, or you're recording into an audio interface, the GPC-16E is ready to go right out of the box!
