Overview

The custom 6-string X Series Custom DX1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar features a D-14 dreadnought body designed to produce a powerful, well-balanced tone that is perfect for live performance and in the studio. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the mahogany HPL back and sides, this X Series Custom DX1 has a big, punchy tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar. The mortise-and-tenon neck joint ensures solid construction of the guitar, with optimal resonant tone, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.

This Martin guitar's laminate birch 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 in. scale, 1-11/16 in. nut width, and 16 in. radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

Other features include a hand-rubbed satin finish, customized rosette, East Indian rosewood HPL headplate and chrome tuners. This guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin guitar, 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.

Case sold separately.

    Comments about Martin X Series Custom DX1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    This is my 3rd Martin! This will be used for travel and to and from the various classes I go to. I also have a 0001XAE and a DCPA4. I love this guitar it looks beautiful and has that great Martin tone! I was thinking about a Yamaha FS or FG availability was a problem and the ones I was able to play I was not impressed. So the Custom X series was it!

    Great Guitar for the Price

    Comments about Martin X Series Custom DX1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    Picked out this guitar for traveling and specifically this one since it doesn't have electronics. Right out of the box, had great sound. Had the action adjusted which is to be expected. Play it almost every morning before leaving for work. I bought it on sale but it's worth the price even if it wasn't on sale.

      Comments about Martin X Series Custom DX1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Not an American made Martin (Mexico) and not solid wood (laminate) but the Martin sound is there. I can't find any fault or flaw with the manufacturing and craftsmanship. It stays in tune well and plays easily with nice base and bright highs. IMHO a very good entry level Martin guitar.

      Great Guitar at a Great Price

      By Nigel

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Martin X Series Custom DX1 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I bought this guitar during a Labor Day sale where it was offered at $100 off. There were great reviews of the guitar already online, and those reviews I believe are pretty accurate. The guitar has a wonderful tone and sounds great either strumming or picking. I think the Martin quality and heritage has trickled down into this relatively inexpensive instrument.
