The D-12E is the latest gig-ready Dreadnought from acoustic heavyweights Martin. With the contempary tonewood combination of Sitka Spruce and Sapele, you get the signature Martin projection but with a modern twist. Sapele provides a similar sound to Mahogany, with a little extra high-end definition. Add a Richlite fretboard, Fishman electronics and a hand-finished tapered neck, and you’ve got a true modern workhorse.

Here’s what Martin say:

With a gorgeous glossed Sitka spruce top and Sapele back and sides, this solid wood Dreadnought model is a great sounding guitar at an affordable price. This all-new model is set apart from its siblings with a Style 28 multi-stripe rosette and Style 18 purfling on the back. It has a Richlite fingerboard and bridge, gloss body, and a hand-rubbed neck finish. Like other Road Series models, it also has Fishman MX-T electronics 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!
