Overview

Martin guitars from the X Series feature patented high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top, patented mortise and tenon neck construction, and professionally installed Fishman electronics. The result: great-sounding, great-playing guitars, that are environmentally friendly, and priced to fly out the door. This is one of Martin's best values ever. The 000X1AE guitar affirms Martin's commitment to providing an affordable and competitive option to players dedicated to live performance.

The 6-string X Series 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar features the 000 platform, a smaller body design than the traditional dreadnought, producing full, robust sound. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the HPL back and sides, the 000X1AE belts out rich clarity and plenty of projection. The Mortise& Tennon neck joint ensures optimal tone resonating from the instrument, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.

The Martin guitar's stratabond neck is a multilayered wood creation, bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.

The modified low oval neck shape, 25.4" scale, 1-11/16" nut width, and 16" radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

The Martin 000X1AE guitar features proven Sonicore pick-up technology with the Fishman Sonitone system featuring "easy access" volume and tone controls conveniently and strategically located just inside the sound hole.

Dressed in a satin finish and featuring chrome tuners, chrome hardware, this guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin, but goes for a price that anyone can afford. Embrace the dream of owning your very own Martin guitar, at a price that is too good to pass up.

All X series guitars arrive stage ready-just plug them in and play. Martin X Series guitars also include a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Martin has always made prudent use of natural resources, especially rare or endangered tonewoods in making their guitars. At the same time, Martin is committed to building guitars of superior tone and playability that are affordable to every guitarist. This 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar from the X Series more than meets both of these criteria.

Impressive Sound and Quality

By Daniel

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar sounds very open and woody. It has that very nice Martin sound heard on the higher end Martins. I have had recent experience with other brands of guitars that did not have the same craftsmanship quality that this Martin has. It just plays perfect. I guess they must not be made to far down into Mexico because obviously someone at Martin cares about quality control. It seems they maintain a lot of control over their factory in Mexico. I'm very impressed with what Martin can do with an acoustic guitar top! The secret is in the bracing. Most of the sound of an acoustic comes from the top. This guitar has a solid spruce top just like it's more expensive brothers and sisters, but it sounds just as good as they do because of the top bracing pattern. You will definitely like this guitar if you like the way the higher end Martins sound. I really like the Fishman Sonitone sound system. It has an awesome and powerful sound plugged in. I also like the volume and tone controls hidden just beneath the sound hole for easy aceess. This guitar has a more defined and non muddy bass because of it's 000 body shape, but it still has plenty of bass. It also has very nice brightness and clarity, which frankly did surprise me. I am very happy that I chose this guitar to buy over the other that I tried. (I bought mine new from the Guitar Center in Nashville.)

A perfect fit A+

By Gabe

from Stockton

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

After returning a few guitars because I just couldn't find the right tone I was looking for, I found this one! Wow! I couldn't believe the sound that I was getting from this Martin. It has a nice clarity and nice bass. The size is perfect for me because of it's slenderness of sort, I am able to play anywhere, on the couch, laying down etc. It's a FUN guitar to play. I tried out the other more expensive Martin's and I really can't tell a difference. This Martin holds its own.

Great Buy!

By Wayne

from Overland Park, KS

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I am an experienced bass player who has always dabbled in guitar. I thought it would be fun to get an acoustic and learn to play songs to play around the fire so to speak. My budget was set around $300. I played the Martin a few weeks ago and loved the sound. It was out of my budget range but I went ahead and compared several other guitars against it. There was no doubt in who the winner way. The Martin had a rich full sound that the others couldn't match. Ignoring the budget I took her home. I can highly recommend this guitar.

Great sound unplugged or plugged in

By Dennis

from Marietta GA

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar today after first playing one a week ago. I love the tone and playability. I plugged it into the Bose PA and it sounds superb. I love the simple volume and tone controls just inside the sound hole. Very happy with it.

Just plain sweet

By Steve McAdams

from Tavares,FL

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Never thought I could afford a Martin, especially one that plays and sounds like this one. Played this next to guitars two & three times its price and actually liked it more. All my friends love it. Its hard to set it down.

Great Guitar for the Money!

By Jeff Lee

from Padre Isalnd, TX.

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been wanting to buy a guitar for many years but never did because of raising kids and working long hours. Now that my kids are grown, I decided that I wanted to finally purchase a guitar. First of all, I 'm very pleased with GC's helpful staff and their policies. I was intending to pay no more than $200 for a guitar thinking that a $200 guitar sounds as good as a $500+ guitar so I purchased a Yamaha FG700s. I brought it home and after a few days of learning cords and struming it just didn't feel right to me. The tones were not vey clean and crisp. So I took it back to GC an upgraded it to a Dean Exotic Ash electric acoustic for $350 with no exchange problems at all. I really liked the looks of this guitar but after playing with it for a while it just didn't fit me well because its bulky. So I came to the conclusion that I needed to spend more to get a guitar that fit me well and get the most bang for my buck! I spent a lot of time researching many brands before going back to GC and trying them out extensively. I decided on the DX1AE! It fits me perfect and the tone and sound is amazing compared to the others tried. The neck is very comfortable and feels great in my hand. I liked the Taylor 210G as well, but it wasn't worth the cost difference to me. It sounded great but for the money the Martin was the best buy in terms of tone, sound, quality and price point. You can't go wrong with a Martin, they just flat out deliver a quality guitar that will last for many years. I love this guitar and recommend it highly.

GREAT !!

By Nathan Langlois

from Metarie, Louisiana

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Just Bought this guitar right after Christmas '10 so I was able to take advantage of the $100 off coupon. I bought this Martin, an amp, and the cable for under 550 bucks. This is a steal! Must buy! Great sound both unplugged or plugged in. GO GET ONE!

Do not hesitate buy one

By David Wright

from Binghamton, NY

Comments about Martin X Series 2015 000X1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I immediately got it home and changed the strings to EXP daddarios 11's and it was like magic. The Martin strings that came with it were not punchy. It came with perfect action and the HPL neck is actually better than real wood. It allows your hand to slide real easy. I am blown away. The only minor issue is when you want to change the battery in the battery pack you basically have to do it when you change the strings. Just hope it doesn't go out during a gig.
