The Martin D-12E is a welcomed addition to the Martin guitar family, bringing the allure of Martin quality within reach of more musicians. This Martin dreadnought showcases the beauty of Koa, a prized tonewood indigenous to sunny Hawaii, long favored in the world of guitar making.
The D-12E is comprised of a koa fine veneer for its back and sides. This method employs a fusion of koa hardwood and African mahogany. It is an innovative approach that not only ensures sustainable sourcing but also yields an instrument of captivating aesthetics.
The D-12E features a full gloss finished body, beginning with a solid spruce top that resonates with clarity and depth. Scalloped X-bracing under the hood further enhances its volume and liveliness. Its Performance Artist neck shape, coupled with the High-Performance Taper and Mortise and Tenon neck joint, guarantees comfortable playability. The fingerboard, constructed from sustainable Richlite, is adorned with Mother of Pearl Style 28 inlays, adding a touch of elegance.
For those looking to take their music to the stage, the D-12E comes equipped with Fishman MX-T electronics, a standard feature. This active system incorporates controls for volume and tone discreetly located inside the guitar's soundhole. The tone control is positioned closest to the fingerboard; rolling it towards the bridge produces a scooped voicing, while moving it conversely yields a flat EQ.
The Martin D-12E, with its exceptional build quality and exquisite tonewoods, provides musicians with an accessible entry into the world of Martin guitars. This guitar is a testament to Martin's commitment to crafting instruments that inspire players at every level.
