The "remastered" Martin X Series features revamped Martin acoustics that give players a chance to experience the iconic Martin sound, while showcasing the inclusion of sustainable materials in their construction. The acoustic-electric Martin D-X1E Koa features the use of high-pressure laminate (HPL) in its construction, and combines durability with the classic Martin tone through Martin's spec and material choices.
The Martin D-X1E features a dreadnought body with a top and sides built entirely from figured koa HPL, a composite material found throughout the X-Series models that is sustainably sourced/produced, and contributes to a guitar that is highly resistant to environmental factors such as seasonal weather changes, temperature and humidity. The D-14 Fret body shape provides a comfortable and familiar canvas for players, and the D-X1E also features scalloped X-bracing, a bracing style used across Martin's acoustic instruments from their top-of-the-line Custom Shop guitars to their student lines, highlighting their belief that any guitar can sound good if the correct components are used.
The Figured Koa HPL top, back, and sides of the D-X1E not only ensure robust durability but also contribute to its unique aesthetic appeal. The stunning wood figuring adds a touch of elegance, making this guitar a true work of art.
Built with a select hardwood neck and a dot-inlaid, select hardwood fingerboard, the D-X1E features a PA neck profile with a high-performance taper. Its 25.4" scale length and mortise & tenon neck joint make an extremely secure, artisan-style connection between neck and body, and the fingerboard measures 1.75'' width at the nut. Equipped with Martin E-1 electronics, the D-X1E offers the opportunity for versatile plugged-in performances. The control features include a volume, tone, and phase control and an onboard chromatic tuner for tuning without the need for any external devices.
The combination of its onboard tuner, resistance to changes in environment and spec choices make this instrument perfect for on-the-go musicians who want to sport a Martin for an attention-grabbing price point.
This guitar comes with a softshell case. Most new Martin Guitars ship with the original endpin not installed, if you'd like us to install one for you before shipping, please let us know and we'd be happy to.
