All parts of the guitar are made from environmentally sustainable, certified renewable woods and alternative materials (the AL is for "alternative"). This includes American cherry back, sides, and blocks, basswood ribbons and braces, katalox fingerboard and bridge, maple bridge plate, and an aluminum top. The 000CE AL also features a Fishman Aero Blend onboard preamp system that includes built-in tuner, Sonicore pickup and microphone/pickup blender.

Interesting aluminum top and shallow depth make this guitar quiet as an acoustic. It does have a nice sound though. The cherry back and sides are excellent looking and the fit and finish are up to Martin's high standards. The Fishman Aero Blend nicely captures the actual acoustic tone though so plugged in or as a small room acoustic are where this guitar shines.
