Martin D-16E Rock the Vote Acoustic Electric Guitar

C.F. Martin Guitars

Martin and artist Robert F. Goetzl have collaborated with David Crosby to produce a special-edition art guitar aimed at Rocking the Vote!

Martin Guitar and David Crosby have a relationship that spans more than 50 years. Crosby Stills and Nash played Martin Dreadnoughts at the historic 1969 Woodstock festival, and Crosby continues to tour with his Signature Edition Martins in 2019. Chris Martin has long been inspired by Crosby’s advocacy and enthusiasm for encouraging people to vote in our federal, state, and local elections. 

This 16 Series Dreadnought guitar, with custom artwork by Robert F. Goetzl, is crafted with satin-finished sycamore back and sides for clear and transparent overtones with a punchy response, and a Sitka spruce gloss top for balanced tone and projection. It includes a high-performance neck taper for ease of playability up and down the fretboard, and it comes equipped with Fishman® Matrix VT Enhance™ NT2 electronics. The D-16E Rock the Vote Special Edition is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 light gauge strings.
