I bought a guitar to go outside with, sit by the fire, and not break the bank. This does not have the bass of my D28, or the mids of my D35, but it has the right balance without loss of quality, beautiful to look at, built perfectly and sounds like heaven in my hands. Save your wallet, and don't live with regret because you bought an over priced Taylor or Gibson. I have a custom James Goodall, that cost 5k......and this guitar has longer sustain. Buy this beauty!
This thing is not equipped with bells and whistles, and it's not supposed to be. This is a basic D16 just as advertised.
Just what I expected from a guitar built in Nazareth PA. Martin's attention to detail is unmatched in production guitars. Gibson is the same, however they are over priced for what you get in my opinion. This thing is flawless except for a small sanding bump, and I mean small on the back of the neck between the 5 and 2 tuners......seriously who the heck is going to notice? I look at it this way, its a unique flaw, I know this is mine, a few small swirls in the spruce top that can only be seen under dim light at night just adds character. It's not a production flaw, its the grain of the wood. I could pick this guitar out of a police lineup, and know it's my guitar.
For the money this is a gem, nothing else compares.
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
.I was in the market for a new acoustic in the one thousand range. I was really leaning toward a Taylor 214ce. I tried one out and thought it didn't feel right and it was a little bright. I then tried a Taylor 314ce and realized where the six hundred price difference came from. I was out of my price range.
I then went to another guitar shop looking for a used Taylor when I came upon a Martin DX1RAE and I laughed, because I hated Martin guitars. I played several martins over my 25 years of playing and they were the hardest guitars I ever played. I figured a 5 year old could cut out a slab of wood and put some strings on it and it would be an easier instrument to play than a Martin. My ex-wife talked me into buying a Martin in 2006 (brand new all mahogany paid twelve hundred out the door) and I sold it a month later for eight hundred. Couldn't stand the effort I had to put into playing the dang thing. So, yeah I was going to prove to myself once again what a joke Martins are.
I picked up that five hundred and fifty priced Martin and played it. I was very surprised at the ease of playing. I couldn't believe what had happened. I picked up a Martin DX1AE and it played like butter as well. I knew I was on the right track and the sound was 20 times better than the Taylor. Yep, the butterflies in my stomach really had my heart racing. I wanted that sound and playability, but could not stand the looks of the stratabond neck and the Mahogany Wood Pattern HPL Textured Finish. I didn't think it would hold up very well.
So, after much research I noticed the Martin D-16GT offered everything I was looking for, especially the modified low oval neck, solid wood and in my price range, I got mine for eleven hundred forty nine skins. The price has gone up a little. I wasn't able to try one out, but knew this would be everything the DX1RAE was plus a whole lot more. I ordered it online and when it arrived I was the happiest man in town. This guitar sounds so good. I have played out and guitar players ask me what kind of guitar I'm playing, because it sounds so good. When I tell them it is a Martin the answer is usually something along the line of "yep, you can tell". I've put over 250 hours of playing on this guitar in the last 9 months, I bought it in June 2014. This is the best acoustic guitar I have ever owned or played for that matter. It looks great, it feels great, it plays great and it sounds great!!!!!!! Now, I wanna go try out a D-28 to see how it holds up to the D-16GT. I just don't see how it can get much better. I am very surprised and extremely pleased with my Martin D-16GT!
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
.Been without an acoustic for about 15 years so auditioned a few. Liked the Gibson Hummingbird, in fact preferred it to a couple of high priced Martins.Then I tried the D 16GT. Loved it from the off. Beautiful build - light and playable, great sustain, frequency range and all for a good price. I'm now re-learning to play the guitar and learning some stuff I never knew with a new friend.
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
.I went in ready to buy a D-15M and walked out with the D-16GT. VERY nice guitar for the price. Just because it's roughly half the price most people associate with Martin doesn't mean it's a "beginner's" guitar. I inspected this thing for a half hour and couldn't find a single construction flaw, or even any shopwear. The seams between the binding and top/sides are perfect, the neck was straight as a board, and the factory set up seems lower than other Martins I've played in the past. Its "voice" is quite interesting for a Martin--big bass, but also a bright high-end that surprised me. Very smooth and even tone that can get loud if you dig in with a pick. The narrow nut is very good for strumming and flatpicking, but one can do some fingerstyle on it, too. Purists (and snobs who can't get past the low price) will scoff at the Richlite/micarta fretboard and bridge. If you hate synthetic material on your guitar, then you'll never like the D-16GT. I like that the micarta is more eco-friendly and doesn't use wood on surfaces that don't influence tone (though that's that's open to debate). The fretboard certainly *looks* beautiful in its uniformity, and I cannot feel ANY difference between it and the ebony board on my Taylor. Also, no silly oils or ointments, just a damp cloth to clean it. I rated it low on "features" because, for all the saving on a synthetic fretboard, you don't get any electronics or a bone saddle, but I didn't want that and will install my own preferred system anyways. I will also install a bone saddle, though it already sounds excellent as is. I wish I could tell the differenc between sapele and mahogany, but that's just curiosity. Overall, an EXCELLENT solid-wood Martin for a very competitive price.

.I had one of these for a couple of years ,traded it for a takamine for the electronics.The ean-76 is great but I realy miss the martin punch of the d-16gt so I'm swopping back and I'll probably install electronics in it.Love the action , tone and overall feel and performance of the D-16gt. Evem better than some top end martins for my taste.Mojoman.

.I purchased the guitar then had a Fishman pickup professionally installed. It plays and sounds like a dream. I play around town and many people come up and tell me how great my guitar sounds and ask me what model and what kind of pickup. My father-in-law has a 1960's Gibson Dove and he can't resist picking up my guitar every chance he gets. I have many friends with Martins that also appreciate the tone and playability of this guitar.

.I tried many brands, all about the same price and solid woods. But when I strummed my Martin D-16GT there was no question about it. Thank you Custom Guitar's friend for putting up with my returns.
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
.I purchased My D-16GT in 2006. It has just got better with age. The top has darkened with age. The rich full sound is great. I play it each day. It sits by my couch in the den. I have been palying for over 30 years and have played them all. For the money you can not get the full tone and pitch from any other guitar for the price. I also have a D-28 3 piece back and the D-16GT is up there with the 28.
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
.I have had my Martin D-16gt for 2 years now and I have to say I loved it when I got it. I felt like all the other reviewers that say it is the best guitar they ever owned. But Now it has turned. The guitar has really opend up and become a mess of sound. The rich warmth and note clarity is gone and all that is left is bright, bright loudness. Martin recommends 13 gage strings and that is what i play, but i have tried all sizes and all names. It is still passable as a finger style guitar, but dont dare strum it. I am feel that these satin back guitars have the possibility of this happening. Without the finish to control and shape and maintain the quality of the sound, as it gets bigger. Its just too much. At least that is what i think, or as they say IMHO. To do over agin, I would not go with thisor any other satin or unfinished model.
Martin 16 Series D-16GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar
. For the price it can't be beat ! It's not a D28 but sounds almost as good for less than half the price !I've had mine for over a year and it's been great. Stays in tune and gets better with age. Don't try to improve it... I tried bone pins and John Pearse strings... horrible ! Went back to the plastic pins and Martin MSP 4200's and it's back the way it should be ! I play classic country and you can't get better for Merle or Conway or Johnny or Porter or Bobby Bare or Jim Ed or even Tammy. Great instrument !
