Martin D-X2E Macassar
Martin took the DX2AE Macassar and reimagined it. The result is the D-X2E Macassar. This Dreadnought sized model has a sapele top and Macassar pattern high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides. New mother-of-pearl pattern inlay on the rosette and fingerboard lend a richness to the D-X2E Macassar making it as impressive to look at as it is to play. With a Performing Artist neck, fingerboard, and bridge of select hardwood, the sound transfer of this model has been greatly improved. It is equipped with Fishman MX electronics and strung with Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings. With a new, soft gig bag featuring headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, this model is ready to go anywhere.

This video features the D-X2E Burst, but it's a Sitka spruce top over HPL back & sides. The tonal properties of the D-X2E Mahogany, D-X2E Rosewood, D-X2E Burst and D-X2E Macassar are all exactly the same. When deciding between these guitars, you need to choose based on looks alone.
