The guitar pictured is the actual guitar you will receive!

At The Farm, we take actual pictures of each instrument and make sure they are fully set-up and ready to play before we ship them. Each instrument goes through a multi-point inspection, followed by a set-up process by our in-house tech staff. We then photograph each instrument with high-quality equipment in our on-site photography studio. We know that details like wood grain and color finishes can vary, so we want you to be able to see, to the best of our ability, exactly what you will be receiving.

This process takes over an hour for each instrument - from inspection to pictures. We care about the instrument we put into your hands! Rest assured your guitar was not just plucked off of a shelf and drop-shipped to you from a warehouse without care.

The Martin BC-16E acoustic electric bass is ideal if you love to write and practice on an unplugged bass but also need the option to plug it in to record or play live with your band.

This BC-16E features a solid Sitka Spruce top, East Indian Rosewood back and sides, and forward shifted scalloped bracing to deliver deep, thumping Martin tone whether you are plugged in or using the built-in Fishman electronics.

A fast and comfortable 34" scale neck with Standard Taper keeps the rhythm section tight and is paired with an Ebony fretboard that is void of inlays.

Additional appointments include an Ebony bridge, a bold herringbone and multi-stripe soundhole rosette, antique white body binding and heel cap, compensated white tusq saddle, bone nut, and brown tortoise pickguard.

It comes equipped with Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 electronics and is strung with Martin Authentic Acoustic Bass Strings. 

Comes with the soft shell gig bag pictured. It is a very sturdy gig bag, with a neck support, more along the lines of lite leer case quality.

Martin Guitar has been Pleking their instruments for close to a decade and believe this process helps maintain the undeniable Martin guitar sound that is recognizable worldwide. A Martin guitar with optimized playability enhances the tone of their guitars, as it prevents the strings from buzzing on the frets during playing and eliminates intonation problems that may occur due to inaccurate nut height. Nothing should come between your playability and that iconic Martin tone. This remains their longstanding commitment to all guitar players worldwide.

What is Plek®?

The Plek® Pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories as a tool that not only does precise fret dressing, but also helps with quality control and R&D. This computer controlled device scans and dresses a guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch or using precise string tension emulation. This is a major breakthrough since the Plek® Pro identifies precisely what needs to be done for perfect fretwork, executes this rapidly, and delivers perfect results on the instrument when strung.

The Plek® Pro speeds up the production process and raises the quality of instruments to an extremely high and consistent level.
