Martin D-12E Koa Dreadnought Electro Acoustic
With the Martin D-12E Koa, now more players can turn their dreams of owning a koa guitar into reality. The back and side of this gorgeous model are constructed with koa fine veneer, which is an environmentally conscious, alternative-wood option, made by bonding koa hardwood to an African mahogany core. The result is the show-stopping look of a koa guitar at a great price. But there is so much more to this guitar. Aside from the legendary Martin tone, you will get mother-of-pearl-patterned rosette and fingerboard inlay, a full-gloss body, a soft-shell gig bag, Fishman MX-T electronics, and Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings. With all that, the D-12E Koa will undoubtedly become your go-to gig guitar.
Excellent Guitar, Bought it for use in recordings, as soon as I unpacked it I tuned Nashville high. A perfect accompaniment tool for the studio, The finish is perfect with the Koa sides and back. Tone and intonation as good as it gets for the price, an excellent guitar.
Fantastic. Just wish Martin would fit lighter gauge strings as standard.
