NAMM 2020 - Official 'Best In Show' Winner!
Description

The Martin SC-13E is arguably the company's most significant release since they created the dreadnought. With its offset cutaway shape and innovative Sure Align neck joint, the SC-13E is a bold new direction in design for the company. The result is a guitar designed for the modern player; wide-open access to the highest frets and a more balanced sound that allows you to play louder and with more gain. From singer-songwriting to experimental styles, the SC-13E represents a truly modern Martin.

Bold New Body Shape

The first thing you notice about the SC-13E is, of course, the offset body shape. With acoustic guitars, cutaways can come at the expense of tone. Offsetting the body of the SC-13E has allowed Martin to create a deeper cutaway while minimising the loss of the full-bodied tone. The body shape, in combination with the koa fine veneer body and solid Sitka spruce top, has a balanced and clear tone that makes it ideal for a wide range of playing styles and genres. 

Innovative Sure Align Neck

Turn the SC-13E around and you'll find Martin's new Sure Align neck joint. This innovative version of a bolt-on neck has no bulky neck heel to get in your way. When you pair this neck with the deep cutaway you get upper fret access that's unprecedented on a Martin. The neck itself is Martin's low-profile velocity shape that has a subtle taper to keep your hand comfortable up and down the neck.

Built To Be Plugged-In

With the modern guitarist in mind, the SC-13E is designed to be plugged-in. The built-in Fishman MX-T electronics are a simple plug-in-and-play solution with a discreet, sound-hole mounted preamp featuring a built-in tuner. The balanced sound of SC-13E makes it well-suited to amplification as it allows you to play louder and with more gain before you enter feedback territory - great for those who want to get experimental with pedals and effects.
