I'm selling my beautiful, hardly used Martin DC-16E Acoustic/Electric. Beautiful all around guitar. Lightweight and full sounding. .

I only played about 2 hours learning Free on the Wing. It plays and sounds amazing. I have a Fishman SA330 acoustic PA and the Fishman pick up in this Martin is much quieter than any of my other Taylor's or Martins. No feedback even really close to the PA. The electronics are top notch.

Check out the reviews or go to your local shop and play one for yourself.
I paid $2,000 at Xmas through Sweetwater with the case. I'm going to be selling off most of my gear. I hardly play anymore.
The picture of the tree is from where the fretboard was taken. I did some research on this as to why it had the finish it did and was supplied this information. Pretty interesting.
As you can probably see, the plastic is still on the pickguard. It hasn't spent more than the 2 hours out of the case.

I would also trade for a Les Paul, a Gretsch Nashville, Zemaitis or possibly a PRS.

Thanks for looking and let me know if you have any questions.

Below are the specs
The classic sound of a Sitka spruce top
This Martin DC-16E's top is crafted of Sitka spruce. Its high stiffness combined with the lightweight characteristics of most softwoods, makes it a natural for a high velocity sound. A strong fundamental-to-overtone ratio gives Sitka spruce a powerful direct tone capable of retaining its clarity when played forcefully. This makes Sitka a top choice among Sweetwater players whose style demands a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.
