The New Martin SC-13E Guitar

 
Revolutionary Design. Amazing Comfort. Great Martin Sound.

It’s time to rethink what an acoustic-electric guitar can do. Do you want to play leads all the way up the neck? Do you want to play longer? Play louder? Now you can with the SC-13E, a super-comfortable, easy-to-play acoustic-electric from Martin.

The first thing you’ll notice is the revolutionary new cutaway. With our patent-pending Sure AlignTM neck system, we removed the heel, providing full access to all 20 frets. No more contorting your hand to reach the high notes. Now you can comfortably play the entire fretboard.

If all that access isn’t enough, the asymmetrical body provides balanced output, so you get more gain before feedback. Don’t worry about playing loud on stage. Now you can turn it up.

The SC-13E is a performing guitarist’s dream. It is equipped with a new, low-profile velocity neck that ergonomically accommodates your hand, giving it the comfort and playability of an electric. No need to bring multiple guitars to a gig. Now you can bring just one and play longer.

Martin SC-13E front and back

While the SC-13E is designed to be plugged in, don’t be fooled—it’s still a Martin—so it sounds amazing unplugged. Whether you are on stage, in studio, or just strumming at home, the SC-13E removes the restrictions of the conventional acoustic-electric guitar. Now you can play your way, any way, without limits.
 

How Our New Acoustic-Electric Is Made

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. See full technical specifications.

SC-13E Reviews

The SC-13E sounds great both acoustic and amplified. I really dig the playability, sound, and color. I need one immediately!
John Oates - Hall & Oates, Rock n’ Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame

A successful synergy of modern innovation and classic design—not to mention, one of the most comfortable acoustic guitar necks you will ever play.
Jonathan Graham, Guitar Interactive Magazine

With virtually unlimited upper register facilitation, acoustic shredders that might not have considered Martin in the past should take a look at what’s happening here and now at a surprisingly affordable price point.
Guitar Player Magazine

Martin has done it. Something I had never imagined for the acoustic guitar. They have leaned forward in their thinking and design and have offered us literally new musical territory for acoustic guitar players.
Worship Musician Magazine

We’ve been waiting for many years now for someone to do something that’s truly different and new. For too long guitars have just been a rehash of existing shapes and building techniques, but well done to Martin for doing something truly new.
Guitar Interactive Magazine

After nearly 200 years it's great to see Martin are still looking forward and capable of innovation - the SC-13E is a bold statement and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one for review.
Ben Morgan-Brown, Acoustic Review
