A classic Martin equipped with Fishman electronics at an accessible price.

The Martin Special 000-X1AE Style acoustic-electric guitar combines their signature craftsmanship with advanced electronics for an instrument that produces a robust acoustic tone and offers versatility for live performance. Featuring a solid spruce top and rosewood back and sides, the balanced auditorium body resonates with full, rich sound. The strong mahogany neck and Richlite fingerboard provide a comfortable playing experience along the neck.

Fishman Electronics Shape Your Acoustic Tone

Equipped with Fishman MX electronics, the Special 000-X1AE Style gives you control over your amplified acoustic tone. Simply plug into an amp or PA system and tweak the onboard controls to adjust the bass, midrange and treble frequencies for a full, warm sound or a clear, articulate tone. The electronics capture the natural resonance of the solid wood top and rosewood sides, allowing you to share your acoustic tone with audiences wherever you perform.

Comfortable Body and Neck for Easy Playability

The auditorium body size of the Special 000-X1AE Style acoustic-electric strikes a balance between comfort and projection. Sculpted cutaways in the upper bout provide easy access to the higher frets. The mahogany neck has a slim profile for a fast playing experience. The Richlite fingerboard, a durable and eco-friendly material, adds warmth and resonance. Whether practicing at home or performing for others, the comfortable design of this Martin guitar makes playing a joy.

Legendary Martin Craftsmanship

For over 180 years, Martin has produced high-quality acoustic guitars using time-honored techniques and the finest tonewoods. The Special 000-X1AE Style exemplifies Martin's commitment to craftsmanship, with its solid spruce top, rosewood back and sides and durable yet resonant HPL materials. Martin's signature tone and playability have endured for generations and this acoustic-electric guitar carries on that tradition of excellence for today's guitarist.
