Dreadnought Cut Away! Made In USA!
This is really cool. You are looking at a 2009 Martin DC-16RGTE Acoustic-Electric Cutaway Guitar. Fishman Aura Electronics System. This is an AWESOME playing and sounding guitar. This is a upper end Martin and it sounds like a Martin! The Martin DC-16 RGTE had a soft, warm sound to it and has exceptional balance between treble, mid and bass values.
From The Web:
The Martin DC-16 RGTE Aura has a solid Sitka Spruce wood top with tortoise shell pick guard, "bold herringbone" rosette, and solid East Indian Rosewood back and sides. The neck is composed of Spanish Cedar with black Micarta wood fingerboard and bridge. Micarta is a beautiful and extremely durable hard wood often used in the production of knife and gun handles but found less frequently in instruments. The compensated saddle is made of the bone-substitute white Tusq and the nut is composed of Corian, an acrylic polymer often used in kitchen counter tops.

The scale length of the DG-16 RGTE is 25.4", width at the nut is 1 11/16" and the width at the twelfth fret is 2 1/8". The fingerboard contains 20 frets all of which are accessible in lieu of the cutaway design. The body is sealed in a beautiful polished gloss finish on the top, while the back and sides are finished with a Satin treatment. The headstock is Martin's solid-square taper and is finished with chrome enclosed machines with small buttons. Of note here as well is the bracing pattern which is the hybrid "X" scalloped pattern which tends to be incorporated with guitars utilizing a mortise/tenon neck joint. Mortise and tenon joints have been used for countless years by furniture makers, masons and blacksmiths and is both simple in construction yet incredibly strong. This method of joint construction is usually used when joining two pieces together at or near a 90 degree angle and often involves the use of pins or glue to join the two pieces together. Included as well with this Martin is the Fishman Aura on-board electronics system. Aura is a high-end electronics system which has made a huge leap in acoustic sound reproduction in terms of authentic sound replication without distortion. The Aura system includes 3-band programmable equalization, feedback cancel, built-in tuner, both XLR as well as 1/4� outputs, an AC adapter, as well as 50 available locations to program and save settings.

 The Neck has a Crisp solid feel that is just as comfortable on the higher frets as it is on the lower ones. Does not BUZZ! Almost feels like an electric slim tapered guitar neck. Loads of fun to play. Perfect if you are a performing musician
