As part of Martin’s Road Series, the D-10E features a number of design tweaks that ensure it stands out from the crowd. Solid Sitka Spruce and Sapele make up the body’s tonewood, offering typical Martin dreadnought tones with a little extra high-end clarity – great for contemporary styles.
Next up, a satin finish all over allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through, while providing a wholly comfortable playing experience. Finally, Martin have equipped the D-10E with Fishman MX-T electronics, subtly tucked under the soundhole for easy access and neat looks. A true working musician’s acoustic that costs a fraction of many premium competitors!
Here’s what Martin say:
With a Sitka Spruce top and Sapele back and sides, this solid wood Dreadnought model is a great sounding guitar at an affordable price. New to this model are stunning mother-of-pearl pattern fingerboard and rosette inlays with a multi-stripe rosette border. It has a Richlite fingerboard and bridge, satin finish body, and a hand-rubbed neck finish. Also new to this model is the Fishman MX-T electronics package with a built-in soundhole tuner that auto mutes the audio output so you can tune up any time without using a pedal. This guitar comes with a soft-shell case so it is Road-ready to join you on all of your adventures!
