Product Description

With the D12X1AE, Martin has created a 12-string guitar as part of the popular X series. An affordable option in a quality 12-string, the D12X1AE uses all the best in Martin craftsmanship to deliver the 12-string experience on a Martin dreadnought. The use of solid sitka spruce for the top gives a nice snap to compliment the large ringing 12-string sound, and the included Fishman Sonitone electronic system does a great job capturing the tone. Martin quality at an affordable price-point, the D12X1AE is a great choice for any player looking to experience everything a 12-string has to offer.

Martin X Series

Martin has always made prudent use of natural resources, especially rare or endangered tonewoods. At the same time, they're committed to building guitars of superior tone and playability that are affordable to every guitarist. The X series more than meets both of these criteria. Backs and sides are constructed of patented high-pressure laminate (HPL) and then joined to a solid Sitka spruce or HPL top. The result: great sounding and playing guitars, environmentally friendly, and one of their best values ever.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Martin products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent Guitar for the money."
Overall: This guitar plays and sounds great considering it's not a very expensive Martin. It is made in Mexico and some people are put off by that and the fact that part of the body is a high pressure laminate. The bottom line though, is it sounds very good and is fairly easy to play action wise. The Pickup/Eq is very simple,effective and fairly hidden inside the soundhole. You might not even know it had one at first glance.In fact when I first played one in the store I didn't know it had a pickup and eq. I did take it to a Luthier and for $30 he took down the bridge a bit because I like the action as low as possible. I am very pleased with this guitar and with the 4 easy payment plan you just can't beat it anywhere in this price range.
