The X series is entry-point into the world of full-size Martin guitars. Featuring a mahogany-pattern high-pressure laminate body (HPL) and Fishman MX electronics, the D-X1E offers a piece of Martin's famous craftsmanship at a more affordable price.
The dreadnought is arguably the most popular acoustic guitar shape in the world, and Martin were the inventors of it! Dreadnoughts are known for being one the louder body shapes thanks to its big sound and excellent projection. With a booming bass and lower-midrange response, you're sure to be heard with a dreadnought. This shape is responsive to both strumming and fingerpicking so it'll handle whatever style you throw at it.
