Lefty Martin with Fishman electronics.
Superior Martin craftsmanship and Fishman technology in a left-handed model. Martin has always made prudent use of natural resources, especially rare or endangered tonewoods. At the same time, they are committed to building guitars of superior tone and playability that are affordable to every guitarist. The X Series meets both of these criteria.
X Series Guitars feature patented high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, patented mortise and tenon neck construction, and professionally installed Fishman electronics. The result: great-sounding, great-playing guitars, that are environmentally friendly, and priced to fly out the door. This is one of Martin’s best values ever. The X Series affirms Martin’s commitment to providing an affordable and competitive option to players dedicated to live performance.
Martin’s X Series 000X1AE Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar features the 000 platform, a smaller body design than the traditional dreadnought, producing full, robust sound. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the HPL back and sides, the 000X1AE belts out rich clarity and plenty of projection. The Mortise& Tennon neck joint ensures optimal tone resonating from the instrument, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.
The stratabond neck is a multilayered wood creation, bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.
The modified low oval neck shape, 25.4” scale, 1-11/16” nut width, and 16” radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.
This X Series model features proven Sonicore pick-up technology with the Fishman Sonitone system featuring "easy access" volume and tone controls conveniently and strategically located just inside the sound hole.
Dressed in a satin finish and featuring chrome tuners, chrome hardware, this guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin, but goes for a price that anyone can afford. Embrace the dream of owning your very own Martin guitar, at a price that is too good to pass up.
