    Comments about Martin Custom X Series X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

    I fell in love with this guitar from the very first time I picked it up in the acoustic room. I was the only one playing and the other guitars began to resonate and hum. Ultimately a guitar is judged by its sound period. You get a sound quality way above the price of this guitar. Now that I have had it for some time I have come to appreciate the quality and durability as well.

          Comments about Martin Custom X Series X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

          I have never owned a Martin guitar. Not that I never wanted one, but the price was too expensive for me. I played this Marin three times before I bought it. I researched the guitar and knew about HPL, and the pros and cons. But I bought it because it has that Martin tone, and the price tag was very easy to digest. The neck is a laminate neck, but it is very nice, feels great and seems indestructible. I'm getting tired of getting out the allen wrench and doing truss rod adjustments on my acoustics.
          I played it through an amp and was very surprised that the tone rang out, very bright on the tenor end. Bass end seemed a little muffled. The Fishmann pre amp is stuck inside the sound hole and the volume and tone controls are easy to adjust on the left side of the sound hole. The guitar is like any other Martin with regards to build quality, it's flawless. The spruce top has been hand rubbed giving the guitar a very understated look. But the sound is not understated and that's why I bought it. Don't let anyone tell you that the X Series with HPL sides and backs are not real Martins, they are.

          I played many guitars at Guitar Center. The one that stood out was this x series. I have 30 days to test this guitar and have no intention of trading it back in for another. I feel that for the money that this guitar has the best sound in its price range, and is made with quality materials. This guitar will not disappoint.

          Comments about Martin Custom X Series X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

          Great feel and tone. Looks awesome.I received this guitar as an early Christmas present. It is my first Martin guitar and I love it. It feels and sounds better that some higher end Martins that I have played. Great price. Thank you Martin Guitar for making a quality instrument that a working, family man can afford and enjoy!

          Unbelieveable

          By 

          from Towson Maryland

          Comments about Martin Custom X Series X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

          I just picked up this guitar at the guitar center in Towson, MD, and I am in love. the action was perfect and there is not a single scratch on the guitar. I have been searching for a high quality guitar for cheap, but I didn't want a Taylor GS mini. I plugged the guitar into an acoustic AG30 amp and it sounded amazing. This guitar sounds like its $1500 and it is a steal at this price.

          Plays Like A Dream

          By 

          from Orlando,FL

          Comments about Martin Custom X Series X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

          I went into GC look for a smaller tube amp for late night playing in my apt. so after playing thru some amps I figured I would think about what to get and walk around a bit. I made my way to the acoustic room not expecting to buy anything started picking up some nice acoustics(Gibson,Taylor)pretty nice but i don't have 2,000 + to spend on one guitar.Then I picked this one up and played it and just could not stop playing it,it sounded wonderful and felt perfect in my hand and played itself almost.The HPL back and sides are very ovation like without having a huge bubble on my lap sliding down I played another HPL martian a few years ago and really liked the sound it put out,this is made in Mexico but seams very well built and solid,setup was perfect and sounds great for the price its comparable to a much higher priced guitar very full sound and plugged in sounds great too I don't have a very good acoustic amp but played it through a pretty good one at gc.I do like the hidden controls in the sound hole just vol. and tone controls.I could not help but buy the thing on the spot usually not how I buy things like this the amp I bought I spent 4 hours looking at reviews of all the amps I had in mind before going in to the store. I just liked it that much so its the 5th acoustic I now own and I'm very happy with it and would recommend it to someone looking for a great sounding guitar for under at or under $500, hope this helps.
