Here's what Martin say about the D-13E:
When you look at the D-13E, you may have to pick your jaw off the floor. Its back and sides are crafted using a fine veneer of ziricote - a tonewood with a deeply layered grain that has a mesmerizing mix of light tones and dark veins and a majestic, cathedral-like look.
Beyond its striking appearance, this professional-grade guitar is equipped with Fishman® MX-T electronics and a soundhole tuner that auto mutes the output so your audience won’t know when you’re tuning. But the best part might be a price that’s every bit as attractive as the guitar.
