OVERVIEW

Environmentally friendly tonewood provides great tone and sustain.

The 6-string Martin 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar features a 000-14 platform, an auditorium body designed to produce a clear, balanced sound that is perfect for live performance and in the studio. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the mahogany-pattern HPL back and sides, the 000X1AE guitar has a clear, balanced 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, 1-11/16 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 guitar comes compete with Fishman Sonitone electronics. The Fishman Sonitone features a sound hole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the sound hole. 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 000X1AE guitar arrives stage ready - just plug them in and play.

Comments about Martin X Series 000XAE Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

ANTHEM; CONSUMER ADVOCATE Please note JUST received today. Exceptionally lightweight, which I don't thing is nesessarilly a good thing. Made in Mexico; should have done a little more research first. Action is too high in upper register and buzzes on a couple of strings. I will, unfortunately, have to get it set up at a cost. Not "ready to play" as advertised, however, to be fair, I will let it acclimate to the indoor conditions as it has been in transport in the cold. Surprised that there is such minimal protection by the box it was shipped in. What you would expect from a lower end guitar. Strap connector on the bottom is a plastic pin insert. BIG disappointment as it should be a secured metal connector like the one on top. Tone sounds very good thus far and crisp. Volume and tone on the Fishman pickup setup are a bit cumbersome to reach into the hole to adjust and kind of strange. Guess the pickup idea is kind of an afterthought and wasn't part of the original design. All that being said, the jury is still out and I will update this review to be fair and accurate as always. Will choose recommend to a friend for now, as there are only two choices; benefit of the doubt.
