NAZARETH, Pa., Jan. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- C. F. Martin & Co.® (Martin®), will introduce four additional models, during NAMM Believe in Music Week, January 18-24, 2021. A new Grand Jumbo offers volume lovers a stunning 12-string option, two new Road Series models will knock your socks off with gorgeous fine-veneer ziricote, and for those looking for a smaller bodied guitar with a cool vintage look, the DJR StreetMaster® will surely fit the bill.
Grand J-16E 12 String
Ideal for experienced players looking to build on their skills, the Grand J-16E 12 String is a full-bodied, muscular guitar that generates well-balanced harmonics with a strong, solid low end. We craft it in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, with East Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, so this powerhouse looks as good as it sounds. We also added scalloped X-bracing to create beautifully resonant tone that fills the room even when unplugged. And, with our high-performance taper neck, this is one comfortable-playing, big-sounding guitar.
GPC-13E Ziricote and D-13E Ziricote
When you look at Martin's new Ziricote models, you may have to pick your jaw off the floor. Their back and sides are crafted using a fine veneer of ziricote—a tonewood with a deeply layered grain that has a mesmerizing mix of light tones and dark veins and a majestic, cathedral-like look. Beyond their striking appearance, these professional-grade guitars are equipped with Fishman® MX-T electronics and a soundhole tuner that auto mutes the output so your audience won't know when you're tuning. But the best part might be a price that's every bit as attractive as the guitars.
Price $1,299 (GPC-13E) and $1,249 (D-13E)
Enjoy the booming, full sound of a Dreadnought in a smaller, more playable size with the DJR-10E StreetMaster®. Its distinctive, distressed finish has a comfortably worn look that feels as if it's an old friend you've been playing for years. But it doesn't just look cool; this instrument is super-comfortable and playable, thanks to a thinner body and a high-performance neck taper. And when you climb on stage or step into the studio, high-performance Fishman® Sonitone electronics make it easy to plug in and play your heart out. Whether it's your first guitar or the one you take to gigs, the DJR-10E StreetMaster will take you to new musical places.
