The X Series brings you tried-and-trusted Martin craftsmanship at an affordable price-point. The D-X1E is a gorgeous addition to the lineup, based on the legendary D-14 Fret dreadnought shape that guarantees excellent projection and maximum versatility.
While its traditional trimmings will appeal to old-school Martin fans, the D-X1E does have a few modern twists up its sleeve. Constructed from HPL (high-pressure laminate) with a Koa pattern, the D-X1E has a robust body with a simply stunning look. The Performing Artist neck shape is very much suited to contemporary guitarists, with a relatively thin carve that enables articulate playing without hindrance.
If you're a gigging singer-songwriter or simply a player that wants to record easily at home, the Martin D-X1E comes equipped with Fishman MX electronics that allow you to plug into a PA system or audio interface for direct sound capture.
Here's what Martin says about the D-X1E Electro-Acoustic Guitar:
We took the DXK2AE and reimagined it. The result is the D-X1E. The top, back and sides of this new 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 new 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.
