OVERVIEW

Superior Martin craftsmanship, and Fishman technology, all at a steal of a price.

Martin guitars from the X Series feature patented high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, patented mortise and tenon neck construction, and professionally installed Fishman electronics. The result: great-sounding, great-playing guitars, that are environmentally friendly, and priced to fly out the door. This is one of Martin's best values ever. The 000X1AE guitar affirms Martin's commitment to providing an affordable and competitive option to players dedicated to live performance.

The 6-string X Series 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar features the 000 platform, a smaller body design than the traditional dreadnought, producing full, robust sound. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the HPL back and sides, the 000X1AE belts out rich clarity and plenty of projection. The Mortise& Tennon neck joint ensures optimal tone resonating from the instrument, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.

The Martin guitar's stratabond neck is a multilayered wood creation, bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.

The modified low oval neck shape, 25.4" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 16" radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

The Martin 000X1AE guitar features proven Sonicore pick-up technology with the Fishman Sonitone system featuring "easy access" volume and tone controls conveniently and strategically located just inside the sound hole.

Dressed in a satin finish and featuring chrome tuners, chrome hardware, this guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin, but goes for a price that anyone can afford. Embrace the dream of owning your very own Martin guitar, at a price that is too good to pass up.

All X series guitars arrive stage ready-just plug them in and play. Martin X Series guitars also include a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Martin has always made prudent use of natural resources, especially rare or endangered tonewoods in making their guitars. At the same time, Martin is committed to building guitars of superior tone and playability that are affordable to every guitarist. This 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar from the X Series more than meets both of these criteria.

Case sold separately.

I think it is pretty cool what Martin did here. They took kitchen counter tops material for the back and sides, skateboard park material for the fretboard, and a microlam neck which is what you use to span large open areas when building houses. Yet, it is a sweet guitar with a warm tone, the intonation and playability are prefect.

I wanted a travel guitar that I could leave in a hotel and not worry about. I have a hd-28 and an 000-15m which are just to expensive to leave unattened or bring anywhere near a campfire. I almost got a taylor gs-mini but I wanted the bass that you get from this guitar. I got a professiona set up and it helped a lot. I also had to sand the side of the fretboard, because it was almost sharp and botherd my hand. I play about an hour every day, so my hands were not the issue. I have played it for about 2 months and it is already breaking in and sounds much better.

Compared to my hd-28 or 000-15m, I do not think it is in the same class. However, the prices are not even close for the HD and the 15 is about double the price. If you can swing it, I would hold out for the 000-15m it is a much better guitar. That said, compared the the guitars in its price range, this thing rocks. After the minor sanding and the set up, this guitar plays as good as either of my other accoustics.

I wish I would have had this back in the day instead of my washburn or my seagull s6. The seagull was a pretty good guitar, but the Martin playability blows that guitar away.

So all in all, a great guitar with sustainable materials. Its perfect for what I wanted and its a keeper.

Not your fathers 000...There are a lot of things that make a guitars tone. The soundboard or top made of tried and true spruce on this guitar, where some of the tone comes from, but not all! The problem/conundrum with this guitar is the rest of the guitar is made from HPL and stratabond. High pressure laminate made from a glued together waste product sawdust and painted to look like wood, the blow up love doll of guitar manufacturing. If you close your eyes and rub your hand over it kind of feels real!? Stratabond another repurposed waste product glued together. "It's alive!" well kind of as long as you know that HPL and stratabond will never "Open up" and are in fact tone killers, period. I still think that this is a neat durable guitar, and there's nothing wrong with recycling materials from real guitars. Considering that this Made in Mexico guitar rolls of an assembly line, like a Model A, and the materials aren't exactly exotic the price point should be lower. This guitar will open up a bit but will never open up like a real solid wood guitar. A guitar is a living breathing organic dynamic thing constantly changing...An all solid wood martin can really change into something quite magical over time. This Frankenmartin will never become a prince charming.

I Not Happy With This Guitar But I'll Keep It

By 

from TH

Comments about Martin X Series 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I live in Thailand and didn't have much time in the states. Had this guitar shipped to a location I was at when visiting America and then returned to Thailand. I didn't have any time to play it before getting home. I found the guitar difficult to play. We've lowered the action as much as we can without lowering the bridge. It's still has high action. It still needs some neck work. I don't have the adjustment tool and it's a special one. I was hoping for more, a lot more.

        Comments about Martin X Series 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I am going to be brutally honest; Martin won't like this and many will refuse to accept this, but I have an HD28 (at about six times the price of this guitar), and I enjoy playing this mexican rascal more. Call me crazy, but it's easier to finger, easier to pick (I have dropped the action), SOUNDS BETTER, and I can take it camping and not worry about the weather, heat, cold, etc. Send the men in white coats to take me away, HA HA.

                Sounds very good, definitely a Martin, i compared it with gpcpa5k model and plugged with Laney LA65 acoustic amps, but finally decided for 000x1ae due to soft and crisp well defined sound compare to gpcpa5k with almost 25 percent higher price than 000x1ae and has a lack of clarity especially when it is unplugged. You have to to have this 000x1ae, good pluck guitar getters.

                      I could not be happier with this guitar especially for the price.
