The Martin DCX1RAE electro acoustic guitar showcases Martin's iconic Dreadnought body, recognised by its square shoulder and bottom, producing a loud and bold tone. It features a classic looking natural aesthetic, with a Sitka Spruce top and HPL back and sides providing an unmistakable Martin tone at a modest price. A cutaway from the 14th fret makes for an accessible upper register providing greater tonal range
Fishman Sonitone electronics
The DCX1AE Macassar is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which delivers great-sounding output onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access.
Birch Neck with Richlite Fingerboard
Martin's logo emblazoned across the Rosewood HPL headstock lets you know this guitar is serious about its tone, and it oozes premium class and quality. The neck is made from a smooth, hand rubbed Rust Birch laminate with a light brown finish, and the fingerboard utilises FSC© Certified Richlite simulating top of the range ebony fretboards in their sound, playability and great looks. Bright white inlays mean you'll never lose your way around the neck of the DCX1RAE
