It’s time to rethink what an acoustic-electric guitar can do. 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 all-new SC-13E, with its patent-pending 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.
It was designed from the ground up to be plugged in, and its asymmetrical body shape provides balanced output, giving you more gain before feedback. So the next time you’re on stage with an SC-13E, go ahead, play it loud.
But, don’t forget, the SC-13E is still a Martin, so it sounds amazing unplugged. And with the limitations of the conventional cutaway acoustic-electric removed, you can now play your way, any way, without limits.
The SC-13E is constructed with a Sitka spruce top and a koa fine veneer back and sides, all with a beautiful gloss finish. Its low-profile velocity, ergonomic neck is carved to produce a subtle progressive taper for maximum comfort, while blue accents in the rosette, fingerboard, and binding are sure to make this guitar stand out in a crowd. It is equipped with a built-in tuner, discreetly tucked inside the soundhole so you can make adjustments without missing a beat. And to further delight performing artists, the SC-13E comes with a soft-shell case and is strung with Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 strings.
