A comfortable body design with solid tonewood pairing, special appointments and a special built-in soundhole tuner.
With a gorgeous glossed Sitka spruce top and sapele back and sides, this solid wood D-12E dreadnought acoustic-electric model is a great-sounding guitar at an affordable price. This 2019 model is set apart from its siblings with a Style 28 multi-stripe rosette and Style 18 purfling on the back. It has a Richlite fingerboard and bridge, gloss body, and a hand-rubbed neck finish. Like other Road Series models, it also has Fishman MX-T electronics with a built-in soundhole tuner that auto mutes the audio output so you can tune up any time without using a pedal. The D-12E comes with a soft-shell case so it is road-ready for joining you on all of your adventures.
The Road Series is perfect for value conscious players looking for a full-sized, solid wood acoustic with the superior Martin tone that has shaped generations of music. Newly updated in 2019, the series features a stunning mother-of-pearl pattern in the fingerboard and rosettes (except this D-12E, which has a Style 28 rosette pattern).
All models include Martin’s high-performance neck taper for added comfort as well as satin and gloss finish options and a variety of tonewoods. Perhaps the most notable update to the Road Series is the addition of discreet Fishman MX-T electronics with a built-in soundhole tuner that auto mutes the audio output so you can tune up any time without using a pedal.
