Overview

The 6-string Martin X Series DXK2AE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar features Martin’s famous D-14 platform, dreadnought body design. The dreadnought was crafted to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for the singer songwriter, as well as the professional touring and studio musician.

The top, back, and sides is constructed using Martin’s famous FSC Certified HPL Koa pattern. For added tone and volume, the top is articulately braced with Sitka spruce, in a 5/16 in. scalloped X-bracing pattern. The X Series DXK2AE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a powerful, rich 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. The Martin guitar's laminate birch neck is a multi-layered wood creation, using 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.

This X Series DXK2AE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar comes compete with the Fishman Sonitone. The Fishman Sonitone features a soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a great acoustic guitar sound, right out of the box.

    Comments about Martin X Series DXK2AE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Need a guitar to withstand dry environment in my office, and to plug in for performances. This HPL (High Pressure Laminate) sounds better than other more traditional laminated guitars I have had, and the neck seems very sturdy and resistant to warping.
    I like the sound of this dreadnought sized HPL guitar better than the 000 sized models. In some way, it still retains a "Martinesque" tone in spite of some tonal limitations of the HPL material. I feel secure with it.
    The Fishman Sonitone pickup/pre-amp sounds acceptable amplified.

        Comments about Martin X Series DXK2AE Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        When moving up the neck you hit some buzzing notes. I am returning the instrument.
        Guitar center said just bring it back for a refund. I am hoping it will be that easy. Sorry it didn't work out.
