Martin 000C12-16E Nylon Acoustic-Electric Guitar – Natural

6-string Acoustic-electric Nylon-string Guitar with Mahogany Back and Sides, Sitka Spruce Top, Hardwood Neck, Ebony Fretboard, and Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 Electronics – Natural

A Nylon-string Guitar Steel-string Players Can Appreciate

Add the sweet, mellow sound of nylon strings to your guitar collection with the Martin 000C12-16E Nylon cutaway acoustic-electric guitar. This guitar’s Sitka spruce top offers great projection and tonality to make your playing really shine. The 1-7/8-inch nut is slightly wider than your typical acoustic, making it the perfect crossover instrument for steel-string players. The 000C12-16E Nylon’s cutaway gives you better access to the entire fretboard, and Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 electronics ensure you’re ready to perform onstage. When you need a world-class nylon-string guitar, you’ll be impressed with the Martin 000C12-16E Nylon.

The perfect nylon-string guitar for steel-string players

Many acoustic players shy away from nylon-string guitars due to the extra-wide nut width. Martin’s 000C12-16E Nylon features a 1-7/8-inch nut width that’s closer to the feel of a typical steel-string acoustic, making it more comfortable for a wider range of players. You’ll find there is still plenty of string spacing to accommodate fingerpicking.

Choice tonewoods — Sitka spruce, mahogany, and ebony

The Martin 000C12-16E Nylon is a prime example of the high-quality tonewoods Martin selects for their instruments. Its solid Sitka spruce top gives you detailed projection with the perfect amount of sparkle. The 000C12-16E Nylon’s mahogany back and sides give you a warm and mellow quality, providing it with an all-around balanced tone. And the premium ebony fretboard sets a fantastic foundation for your fretwork while accentuating your tone’s attack and presence.

Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

You’ll be ready to perform with Martin’s 000C12-16E Nylon, which comes equipped with Fishman’s Matrix VT Enhance NT1 electronics system. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and it shows in the natural tone the 000C12-16E Nylon acoustic-electric reproduces. A discreet soundhole wheel gives you full control over your output without marring the natural beauty of your Martin.
