OVERVIEW

High-quality environmentally friendly tonewood matched with the kinds of features that make this a great choice for stage or studio.

The 6-string Martin custom 000X1AE Rosewood acoustic-electric guitar features an auditorium body designed to produce a powerful, well-balanced tone that is perfect for live performance and in the studio. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the rosewood-pattern HPL back and sides, the custom 000X1AE Rosewood produces full, even tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar. The mortise and tennon neck joint ensures solid construction of the guitar, with optimal resonant tone, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.

The Martin guitar's laminate birch 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 in. scale, 1-11/16 in. nut width, and 16 in. radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fingerboard.

This X Series Martin acoustic guitar comes compete with the Fishman Sonitone. The Fishman Sonitone features a soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a great acoustic guitar sound, right out of the box.

Other features include a hand-rubbed satin finish, a rosewood HPL headplate and chrome tuners. This guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin guitar, 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.

Case sold separately.

      Comments about Martin X Series Custom 000X1AE Rosewood HPL Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      It is a nice guitar but Martins are nice guitars. Played out of the box but action was a tad high but an easy fix. Nice price for a Martin, I know it has laminated woods (hpl) on back and sides but it still puts out great tones and has really started opening up,it will just get better...don't put off buying one, the price will just go up like everything else.
