Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom X1-000E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric:

This is my go-to acoustic. Mine might be a slightly different model as I got mine in 2014.
The tone is great, it sustains well, stays in tune for a long time. The narrow profile of the body makes playing really comfortable.
My only issues are that the battery is not easy to change with the strings on (in a nylon pouch inside, under the neck) and the electronics are held to the underside of the top with an adhesive, which is really weak and fell off after a couple months. I was able to reattach it with a stronger adhesive that didn't affect the sound at all.
I was surprised by how loud I could play it with minimal feedback, so that was a welcome surprise.

        I bought this for my 12 year old Grand daughter. She just loves it. Perfect size for her, it sounds great and it's a Martin. She is an accomplished, violinist and an experienced guitarist. She says this is the best guitar she's ever played, except for one of my high end Martins.

              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 X Series 2015 Custom 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.
