Here's what Martin say about the D-16E:
This 16 Series Dreadnought model is crafted with satin-finished ovangkol back and sides for resonant sound with deep bass and rich overtones. Ovangkol can vary both in color and grain complexity for a unique look. This model includes a mahogany burst ovangkol gloss top for balanced tone and projection and a high-performance neck taper for ease of playability up and down the fretboard. The D-16E Burst comes equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance electronics. Strung with Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 light gauge strings.
