Overview

The 6-string DX1AE Macassar Dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar features a dreadnought body designed to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for live performance and in the studio. Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the Macassar-pattern HPL back and sides, the DX1AE Macassar Dreadnought has a clear, balanced tone, with all the sustain and dynamic range 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 and sustain.

Dressed in an attractive sunburst hand-rubbed finish, Macassar 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. Richlite is forest-friendly material that has similar tonal characteristics to ebony. It’s light, easy to play, and less effected by humidity changes in the environment.

For easy playability, the DX1AE Macassar Burst comes with a modified low oval neck, with Performing Artist taper and 1-3/4” nut width. The neck profile and string spacing make it easy for players to play up and down the fingerboard with ease.


This DX1AE Macassar 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.
