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 SC-13E, with its patented 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.

Bold New Body Shape

The first thing you notice about the SC-13E is, of course, the offset body shape. With acoustic guitars, cutaways can come at the expense of tone. Offsetting the body of the SC-13E has allowed Martin to create a deeper cutaway while minimising the loss of the full-bodied tone. The body shape, in combination with the koa fine veneer body and solid Sitka spruce top, has a balanced and clear tone that makes it ideal for a wide range of playing styles and genres.

Innovative Sure Align Neck
Turn the SC-13E around and you'll find Martin's new Sure Align neck joint. This innovative version of a bolt-on neck has no bulky neck heel to get in your way. When you pair this neck with the deep cutaway you get upper fret access that's unprecedented on a Martin. The neck itself is Martin's low-profile velocity shape that has a subtle taper to keep your hand comfortable up and down the neck.

Built To Be Plugged-In
With the modern guitarist in mind, the SC-13E is designed to be plugged-in. The built-in Fishman MX-T electronics are a simple plug-in-and-play solution with a discreet, sound-hole mounted preamp featuring a built-in tuner. The balanced sound of SC-13E makes it well-suited to amplification as it allows you to play louder and with more gain before you enter feedback territory - great for those who want to get experimental with pedals and effects.
