OVERVIEW

Full, robust sound in a comfortable 12-string.

The X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar features Martin’s famous D-14 platform, dreadnought body design. The dreadnought was crafted to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for the singer songwriter, as well as the professional touring and studio musician. 

Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the mahogany-pattern HPL back and sides, the X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a powerful, rich 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 in. scale, 1-7/8 in. nut width, and 16 in. radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

This X Series Martin acoustic-electric 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.

Dressed in a satin finish and featuring chrome tuners, chrome hardware, 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. The Martin X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar arrives stage ready-just plug them in and play.

      Comments about Martin X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Wonderful Guitar, Excellent service and price from Musicians Friend. Great sound, and feel. Always wanted a Martin, but figured I couldn't afford one, but thanks to Musicians Friend I got it and as happy as I can be. It sounds so really good, I have no complaints at all. It truly inspires me. Can't hardly take my hands off of it. I'm sure someday it will be worth a whole lot more, just like all of the other classic Martins.
