What we say:
At A Glance:
The 16 Series BC-16E-01 is a beautiful acoustic bass guitar from Martin. A great option for bassists looking to add variety to their instrument arsenal or for professional musicians in need of a great sounding and reliable acoustic guitar. The combination of the sitka spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides and Fishman Matrix VT pickup give the guitar a detailed character that's capable of delivering deep thumping tones, making this an inviting instrument that you'll keep coming back to.
Features We Love:
The guitar combines a beautiful gloss finish sitka spruce top with matt finished East Indian Rosewood. Its a mix that not only looks high end, but promotes depth and clarity. Whether plugged in or playing acoustically, this bass always sounds great!
Martin Forward Shifted X-Brace System
Martin's X-Brace system dates back almost 200 years, designed to present the perfect balance between reliability and optimised tonal quality, in a guitar that will last a lifetime. This "forward-shifted" and scalloped design moves the X towards the neck and removes wood mass, retaining support and rigidity whilst allowing the section behind the bridge to resonate. The result is a guitar with a superior bass response, making this one of the best sounding acoustic basses we've heard!
Fishman Matrix VT Pickup
Fishman have a reputation as one of the best pickup manufacturers in the world and their acoustic guitar pickups are especially loved. The Matrix VT series pickup offers exceptional transparency to present the true sound of your guitar to a speaker system. The system also features a volume and tone control discreetly tucked into the soundhole, so there are no ugly control panels screwed onto the body. It looks like a traditional acoustic with the control and convenience of an electro-acoustic, truly the best of both worlds.
