Martin has always made prudent use of natural resources, especially rare or endangered tonewoods. At the same time, it's committed to building guitars of superior tone and playability that are affordable to every guitarist. This left-handed Martin guitar from the X Series more than meets both of these criteria.
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 X Series affirms Martin's commitment to providing an affordable and competitive option to players dedicated to live performance.
The 6-string Martin DX1AE lefty acoustic-electric guitar features a D-14 platform, a dreadnought guitar body design producing big, round sound. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the mahogany-pattern HPL back and sides, the Martin DX1AE guitar belts out rich clarity and plenty of projection. The mortise and tennon neck joint ensures solid construction of the instrument, with optimal resonant tone, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics.
The Martin DX1AE 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 left-handed Martin guitar's 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.
This Martin X Series 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 left-handed 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 DX1AE guitar, at a price that is too good to pass up.
All X Series guitars arrive stage ready-just plug them in and play. This Martin guitar also includes a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

I played cheap laminate acoustics for two years and just couldn't handle it anymore. My playing had far surpassed a level these guitars could support. Now, working a minimum wage job, getting a $1000+ guitar was simply out of the question. I visited GC (the closest GC is sort of a long trip from my home) a few times over the course of a few weeks trying to decide the acoustic I absolutely wanted to buy. Each visit this guitar just stuck in my mind. I thought about it a lot. I had to play higher priced acoustics in the little fancy acoustic room and this matched several of them and even bested some of them. It is an absolutely amazing guitar, and its poor teenager friendly. I absolutely love it and can play it for hours and hours. Oh yeah, and it smells incredible.
