Overview

The Martin Custom X-000CE acoustic-electric guitar combines that world-famous Martin sound with the contemporary playability of an electric guitar. Martin’s auditorium body is famous for defining the balanced acoustic guitar tone, with the right amount of bass, midrange, and treble frequencies. The body is constructed with Martin’s forest-friendly Jett Black HPL to give you an attractive visual look. This guitar was crafted to be a “player's dream.” 


The OMCPA5 features a very playable laminate birch neck with a modified low oval neck shape. This precision-cut neck has fast FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard, and a 1-11/16” nut width, to give you a comfortable spacing between the strings. 

Looking for electronics? The Martin Custom X-000CE comes complete with an onboard Fishman Sonitone preamp. This soundhole-mounted-preamp features easy-to-use rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole for easy access while you are performing. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a studio-quality sound right out of the box. 

This guitar is everything you’ve come to expect from Martin, at a price that just about anyone can afford. Pick one up. You’ll love the sound and playability of this fine instrument.

I am in love with this guitar. Amazing sound and feel to it...insanely easy to play...great price it's pretty much a bargain for the quality you're getting. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quality guitar that looks sleek and will last a long time. Plus it's electric with a tuner. What's not to love????

I played this for an hour at my local GC. I've played Martins before and really wanted one that fit my budget. Acoustic guitars aren't easy to buy because there are so many variances in tone woods. HPL just doesn't project as well and lacks the chime you expect with a Martin.

      This guitar it is a an artwork. It is looks cool, and it sounds nice as well.
      Martins' guitar always has the best low pitch compare to others, it is really good for singing while playing the guitar. Finger style solo is also OK.
      I do love this guitar, it is my favorite one so far.

      Comments about Martin Custom X Series 2016 X-000CE Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I tried several Martins on the same price range and finally I decided to purchase this one. This guitar is well engineered, It has a unique look, it feels great and it has a beautiful sound quite unique compared to most popular Martin's guitar. I am in love with this 2016 model.

      Comments about Martin Custom X Series 2016 X-000CE Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I really like the guitar. I've been playing it. acoustically. Nice sound. Nice action. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is that it has an automatic tuner that goes into active mode when the guitar is hooked up to an amplifier. Apparently I didn't read the fine print. I don't care for the Fishman tuner. I'd rather have electric without the tuner. My bad. I'll continue enjoying it as an acoustic guitar. Thanks.

      This guitar has been the best guitar purchase of my life. For the price the guitar has a beautiful sound, it's easy to play, the tuner is easy to use, the color is beautiful I love the Matt black finish, and plugged into an amplifier the feedback is minimal. I strongly suggest this guitar to anyone looking for a guitar with thousand dollar quality.

        A True Battleaxe of a Guitar!

        By The Druid

        from Indianapolis, IN

        Comments about Martin Custom X Series 2016 X-000CE Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I have this black X-000CE model as well as the "Alternative X" model with the stainless top. I've toured with these guitars for years. I play many outdoor venues where temperature, dust and moisture are all issues. They are built like TANKS, they stay in tune under extreme conditions and have never let me down.

        I get to the venue, pull it out of the case, plug it in to my pedalboad.DI and GO. The Fishman electronics make this guitar sound HUGE through a PA. Sound techs are always asking me questions about it because of the sound.

        These guys don't sing as well unplugged...but that's not their design...these are stage guitars. If you want a guitar to sound big unplugged, this isn't the one. They still sound good unplugged, but these babies really shine in a live, plugged in setting.

        Oh, and the HPL laminate body takes all the pressure off of spilling beer on your guitar. :-P Wipes right off! lol.
