The thin body on the Martin 00CXAE Acoustic-Electric Guitar makes it easy to play. With 14 frets in the clear and a thin-line, cutaway body to give you access to the higher six, this guitar combines Martin's killer acoustic sound with electric guitar versatility. The onboard Classic 4 preamp and Sonicore pickup provide full, warm acoustic tone with minimal feedback while the jet-black finish sizzles in the limelight.

I've played for 10 years with many different acoustic-electrics made by Ibanez, Fender, and Washburn. My last was an Ibanez JSA5 Satriani model and before that were a few Ibanez Artwoods. This Martin destroys those for the same price. Even with the HPL body, the sound resonates as well as an Artwood. The main difference is with everything else: the neck, bridge, tuners, and pins. The level of American quality all over the guitar is a night and day difference from any Ibanez or Fender acoustic. I had to sand down the saddle to lower the action and restrung it with Elixir Nanowebs for my taste. The small size is perfect for me because I'm not very tall. This guitar plugged in is ridiculous for the price. Get it!
An excellent acoustic guitar. I was amazed at he warmth and depth coming from such a thing bodied acoustic. Even more so with the ease of play. I enjoyed the thin neck, unusual to aucoustics, but wonderful for many styles of music. I found the finish to be beutiful, and I loved the natural color and tone of the neck. All this finished off with a great price for a Martin.
I purchased my Martin 00CXAE around six years ago. It is everything I was looking for in a acoustic guitar. It is playable and sounds good live. I hook mine up to a SWR Strawberry Blond. From my experience this guitar seems to play best when I put 10 guage D'Addario Acoustic guitar strings on it. The only problem I have had with it is that the truss rod needed to be adjusted. It works fine after that. Its a good guitar for the intermediate looking for a playable rich sounding acoutic guitar.
