MARTIN made the 0-16NY between 1961 and 1995. Shaped in the authentic “New York Martin” style, the concert sized Martin 0-16NY joins a quarter sawn mahogany body with a resonant spruce top trimmed in black and white inlay. Finished in natural semi-gloss lacquer, the 0-16NY combines a rosewood fingerboard with a rosewood bridge. Braced for (light!) steel or nylon strings, the 0-16NY is considered an ideal finger picking folk guitar because of its soft mellow sound and wide neck. The Martin 0-16NY was one of the first Martin vintage re-issues, having the standard pre-1929 Martin guitar configuration of a slotted headstock and a wide classical width neck joined to the body at the 12th fret. The 0-16NY has minimal embellishment - with no fingerboard position markers except side dots. Tuners are three-on-a-plate classical style units.

In 2004 Martin issued the 0-28 model, a rosewood backed guitar loosely based on Ian Anderson's 0-16NY (the Jethro Tull front man's first small bodied guitar) bought in 1972.
