The X Series Custom X-000CE Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar 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 in. nut width, to give you a comfortable spacing between the strings.

The guitar had permanent stains and marks all over in front and back. Looks like a bad finish with paints are faded in some place and marks all over... its not just finger stains.....posted pics here. Unfortunately I didnt open the box when I bought it as I had to take it to a place outside US. Devastated that I got cheated and I saved for several years and put all my hard earned money in buying this one.

A True Battleaxe of a Guitar!

By The Druid

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Martin X Series Custom 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.

Great Guitar

By Jay

from Mesquite TX

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

Very nice, easy to play, has a built in tuner, probably the best inexpensive guitar you could buy. All your friends can envy the fact you have a Martin. You get to be the center of attention. No cons to be seen yet and its built to last. Plus the matte black and solid wood neck are absolutely beautiful.

Verified Buyer

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

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.

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

      I received this guitar for my birthday. WOW! this thing is amazing. it's very tough and the sound perfect. I played many guitars at GC when deciding what I wanted. I play a $2,000 dollar Taylor, Gibson J-45, $1,000 dollar PRS and many other "expensive guitars." However, I kept coming to this one because it played the best and sounded the best. for a 000 the bass is perfecting balanced whereas with Taylor's they sound like paper.

      If you are considering getting a new guitar, get this one.

      Martin Custom X Series 2016 X-000CE

      By hugh

      from Columbus OH

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

      Martin Custom X Series 2016 X-000CE, I like it so far. It has good sound quality as other said. However, it is indeed different sound quality compare to other solid top guitars. I personally feel that it has clear sound. Some might say bit plastic. Anyway I am satisfied with it. Only one issue I have is the gap between the flat board and strings are little bit much (it hurts). I might use sand paper to lower the saddle.

          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.

          Unbelievable Sound

          By Tancredi

          from Boston, MA

          Comments about Martin X Series Custom 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.
