OVERVIEW

Jett Black HPL top and body married with a PA neck profile and Fishman Sonitone USB electronics.

The 6-string Martin DXAE Black 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. The top, back, and sides are constructed with Martin’s attractive Jett Black FSC Certified HPL. For added tone and volume, the top is articulately braced with sitka spruce, in a 5/16” scalloped X-bracing pattern. The DXAE Black 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 wood-to-wood contact, creating the optimal amount of resonant tone. The Martin guitar's laminate birch neck is a multilayered wood creation, using 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. For easy playability, the neck is precision crafted to a Performing Artist shape, with a high performance neck taper. The 25.4 in. scale, 1-3/4 in. nut width, and 16 in. radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the 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.

Case sold separately.

Comments about Martin X Series DXAE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I own several Martin guitars and enjoy playing all of them. But this DXAE is somewhat of a disappointment to me. The Martin quality is there, also the workmanship but the sound is missing. It has a dull flat sound. I purchased it for one of my grandchildren and she loves it. I would have to say it's great for a learner's guitar.
