Martin DX1AE an Ultramodern Acoustic Electric Dreadnought!
The Martin DX1AE is a Dreadnought made in Style X1 and an Acoustic-Electric guitar by virtue of the onboard Fishman Sonitone electronics.
Martin's iconic Dreadnought body is the most copied acoustic guitar design ever, and this genuine Martin acoustic-electric DX1AE benefits from that rich bass response heard only from a Dreadnought sound chamber, as it amplifies the dynamic tone of a solid Sitka spruce top, reflected by a back and sides made from fracture-resistant high pressure laminate (HPL) sporting the mahogany looks of a classic D-18, at a fraction of the price.
The sleek 1-11/16" neck has Martin's Modified Low Oval profile, the solid Sitka top has a hand rubbed finish, and the on-board electronic amplification comes from the Fishman Sonitone system with its discrete volume and tone controls placed just inside the sound hole for easy access during live performances.
Whether you pick Bluegrass, fingerpick folk, or strum through rock-n-roll barre chords, this no-frills design puts your money where it matters most, into the Martin quality and impressive Dreadnought tone to be savored and enjoyed for years to come. The Martin DX1AE is also available in Macassar Burst finish.
