OVERVIEW

Ready for the stage with Performance Artist tapered neck and Fishman electronics.

The custom 12-string Martin X1D12E-CST acoustic-electric guitar features a D-14, a dreadnought 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 mahogany-pattern HPL back and sides, the custom X1D12E-CST has a big, punchy tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar. The mortise-and-tenon 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" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 16" radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

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, customized rosette, mahogany 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 X1D12E-CST Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric:

    The first one I received had a crack in the side and the back was separated from the side along the bottom. I heard these had this issue but heck it's a Martin. I sent it back and received another. This one is perfect. Plays well and sounds ...well... like a Martin :-). I would not use it on the road without a ruggard case as it is fragile.
