Martin DC-X2E Macassar
Martin took the DCX1AE Macassar and reimagined it. The result is the Martin DC-X2E Macassar. This Dreadnought sized model features a cutaway body with a Sitka spruce 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 DC-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 end pin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, this model is ready to go anywhere. Also available in Rosewood and Mahogany.

This video features the DC-X2E Mahogany, but it's mahogany-patterned HPL. Its apperance is made to look like mahogany but HPL is HPL. The tonal properties of the DC-X2E Mahogany, DC-X2E Rosewood and DC-X2E Macassar are exactly the same. When deciding between these three, you need to choose based on looks alone.
