Martin BC-16E Guitar

List price

$2,399.00

The Martin BC-16E acoustic-electric bass is ideal if you love to write and practice on an unplugged bass but also need the option to plug it in to record or play live with your band. The BC-16E includes a solid Sitka spruce top, East Indian rosewood back and sides, and forward shifted scalloped bracing to deliver deep, thumping Martin tone whether you are plugged in or using the built-in Fishman® electronics. It also includes a fast, comfortable neck so you can keep the rhythm section tight. The BC-16E is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Bass Strings.
