Regular price $2,199.00

Unit price per 

For your consideration, a low mileage 2016 Martin JC-16RE Aura acoustic. This very nice Martin left the factory equipped with all sorts of great features. This model was short-lived, and prices on used models have been climbing since the guitar was discontinued. This is a great chance to acquire one in ridiculously clean condition. This came to us from a private collection where it remained unplayed in the case for most of its life. 100% original and unmodified. This sweet Martin has been fully inspected, fully setup, and restrung. Low action and an unreal sound from the Fishman Aura system make this one a treasure! 

Info from the manufacturer:

The Martin JC-16RE Aura acoustic/electric guitar is a great guitar for any looking for that perfect balance between comfort, tone, and style. Built around Martin's J-14 jumbo body style, the JC-16RE Aura combines complementary tonewoods (East Indian rosewood with a sitka spruce top) and elegant appointments to give you an exquisitely musical instrument that feels and looks amazing. A smooth Venetian cutaway also gives you easy access to those higher frets. The JC-16RE Aura is as much of a performer onstage as it is off. An onboard Fishman Aura pickup system lets you gain full access to your guitars tone live, so that even people in the back of the room can hear every detail of your music.
