Martin took the DXK2AE and reimagined it. The result is the D-X1E. The top, back and sides of this guitar are constructed from a gorgeous, koa-pattern high-pressure laminate (HPL), generated from premium Hawaiian koa that was specially selected from Martin's wood stores. It is equipped with Fishman MX electronics and strung with Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings. All this gives the D-X1E a great look to match its room-filling sound. Add in a soft gig bag featuring headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, and this model is truly a stage-ready guitar.

"Amazing sound for a truly great price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Want that BIG room filling Martin sound?? This guitar is the answer. If u are on a budget, but don’t want to sacrifice tone and playability, THIS IS the axe for you. Booming bass combined with just the right amount of clarity and warmth is how I best describe the sound. Perfect for singer songwriters and great for live or recording too.
