Martin Left-handed Grand J12-16GTE Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar

 

The Martin Left-handed Grand J12-16GTE features their jumbo body design for an increase in tone and volume. Like many of their classic guitars, the J12-16GTE is constructed from all solid tone woods. The back and sides are genuine mahogany. For the top, Martin uses a Sitka spruce soundboard, braced with a 5/16″ scalloped bracing pattern. The neck is joined to the body with Martin’s new simple dovetail neck joint. All this and a fast Performing Artist neck taper, give you a guitar that’s easy-to-play, with a HUGE amount of sustain. This combination of tone woods, neck joint, and bracing pattern gives you an instrument with a lot of sustain, volume, and balanced tone between the bass, mid, and treble frequencies.

Playing in the studio or live on stage?  The J12-16GTE has got you covered. It comes equipped with the D-Tar Wave Length Multi Source pickup system that gives you a superior sound with exceptional headroom. Add to this a hardshell case, and you’re ready to play anything your band can throw at you.
