Martin 000-13E Solid Electro Acoustic
The Martin 00013E represents all the qualities that Martin guitars value;- traditional looks, uncompromising tonal quality and superb playability. These qualities are achieved through a carefully selected spec, Martin's rich history of guitar building and cutting edge electronics & design techniques, bringing you the 00013E Electro Acoustic.
Featuring a 000 Auditorium body, this shape is comfortable for the player, in addition to providing a brilliant, versatile tone that adapts to many styles of acoustic play. The 00013E is equipped with a solid Spruce top for a traditional look and reliable sound, however they veer away from the norm here and have instead appointed the back and sides with Siris. This tonewood is distinguished by its golden-brown hue and tightly figured grain pattern similar to Koa, however it's the voice of the wood that stands out, with a bold, balanced and clear sound that is sure to perk up the listeners ears. This rather unique voice and distinctive combination of contrasting woods comes together to present a model that truly stands out amongst the competition, as well as on a stage!
The 00013E is appointed with a selected hardwood neck topped with an FSC certified Richlite fingerboard to present a darker wood contrast against the body wood makeup, as well as providing a more complex depth to its voice. With a 24.9" scale and 14th fret join, this guitar has a focused sound with sustain that would put some jumbo sized guitars to shame. The whole package is completed by the appointment of a Fishman MX-T soundhole pickup, which delivers a lush, natural representation of the acoustic sound of the 00013E, by means of neatly tucked away controls and a built in tuner for easy muted tuning during a performance. The model even comes with a soft-shell case to protect it at home or on the road.
With a proud sound, distinctive aesthetic and modern appointments that would appease even the most demanding of gigging musicians, the Martin 00013E takes a fresh approach to the traditional guitar formula. It may not reinvent the wheel as such, but it certainly pushes the boundaries of quality acoustic craftsmanship.
