Martin Road Series SC-13E Special Acoustic Electric Guitar
Martin's groundbreaking SC13 guitar was a huge departure from their long-standing traditions, and from that departure they created an amazingly versatile guitar that plays like a dream, gigs like a champ, and doesn't leave your wallet in tears. The new SC13 Special takes all that grooy new mojo and adds an eye-catching Ziricote back & sides that you just want to stare at all day long. For gigging musicians and especially electric guitar players needing an acoustic sound with a familiar feel, the SC13 is just the ticket for you!
Do you want to play leads all the way up the neck? Play longer? Play louder? Now you can with this super-comfortable, easy-to-play acoustic-electric from Martin. The SC-13E, with its patented Sure Align® neck system, gives you full access to all frets so you can comfortably reach those high notes. It’s also equipped with a new, low-profile velocity neck barrel that ergonomically accommodates your hand as you move up the neck, giving you the comfort and playability of an electric. This special edition SC-13E features a Sitka spruce gloss top and ziricote fine veneer gloss finished back and sides. The design motif features an aperture rosette inlay with ebony headplate, fingerboard, and bridge. It also features nickel open gear keyhole tuners with skeleton key knobs. This model is available with or without a burst top.
Due to material availability the SC-13E Special and Special Burst comes with a soft-shell case or soft gig bag. Selection may vary.
Due to the natural variety of wood-grain, the figuring on each model will be different.
