Overview

The Martin D-1E Acoustic-Electric Guitar is equipped with a solid Sitka spruce top, with scalloped hybrid Sitka bracing, joined to solid sapele back and sides to create a resonant and powerful voice with excellent balance. The guitar's 14-fret Stratabond neck is fast, slim, and strong (25% stronger than mahogany), making the D-1E an ideal guitar for the road. Add to this superb Fishman Presys+ preamp electronics and you've got an acoustic-electric guitar that delivers a true acoustic sound in any venue.

The Presys+ Onboard Preamp System on the Martin D-1E offers maximum control, performance, and quality in a small, unobtrusive format. This compact sophisticated Presys system features Volume, Bass, Mid, and Treble controls, a Phase switch, and a built-in tuner with LED display. Presys preamps also include a pre-wired Fishman Sonicore pickup for solder-free, plug-and-play installation; a low- battery indicator; low-profile control knobs; and a unique pivot design for easy access to the battery compartment.

Great guitar

By SteveBee

Comments about Martin 1 Series D-1E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Presys+ Onboard Preamp:

This is a great guitar for the price. Out of the box, it was strung with Martin 12's, and the action was a bit high. I changed to custom lite Elixir's (11 high e string), and the action was perfect. This guitar is surprisingly lightweight. The feel of the neck is awesome. It always feels smooth, and dry, never sticky, or tacky. It was described as having a description fast neck... That description was quite accurate. As funny as this may sound to some people, If you like the smell of a good solid wood guitar, you'll love this one. My only negative comment is the very light non glossy top finish. I prefer a darker glossy top. That being said, for this price range, this guitar excels in quality, craftsmanship, and playability. I highly recommend it.

Martin D1E Guitar review

By Player 56

from Houston, TX

Comments about Martin 1 Series D-1E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Presys+ Onboard Preamp:

I recently purchased this guitar after playing it at a local shop while out killing time on a rainy day. I stumbled acroos this guitar and was amazed at how it sounded, compared to the price. I have a Taylor guitar that I have really liked that is not their top of the line guitar, but played and sounded very nice. This Martin blew it away. I loved the neck (although quite different in construction from any other guitar i have played). I just had to have it. I bought the guitar and have not been disapointed. I love how it plays and sounds. And it sounds very nice on my acoustic amp as well. although it dows not have the cosmetic appearance of other higher end martin and Taylor guitars, It actually sounds better to me than some of the others that i have played. It is a awesome guitar for the price. Thanks to Martin for bringing a quality instrument to us for a resonable price

Comments about Martin 1 Series D-1E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar with Presys+ Onboard Preamp:

It's a Martin, what can I say! It plays so easy and the action is awesome. The sound and electronics sound great through my Yamaha Stagepass sytem. It arrived today and I played a gig the same night with NO problems or issues. I would highly suggest purchasing this guitar. You will not regret it!
