Oh, and just one more thing...
They sound great! And the DX1AE is no exception. The HPL back and sides are joined with a solid Sitka top which gives this guitar bags of projection and a bell-like clarity that really cuts through!
After a few minutes in your hand you forget about any misconceptions you may have had about the HPL back and sides and are drawn in by the tone this guitar is producing. The dreadnought body size creates a big bold tone with bags of volume. The DX1AE also comes with a Fishman pick-up so again, for the gigging or recording musician, all bases are covered.
Who would've thought a few years ago you could own a Martin guitar for under ·600?
Well, now you can and it's a beauty!
The DX1RAE acoustic-electric guitar features a D-14 platform and a Dreadnought body design that produces a full, sustaining sound. The East Indian rosewood-grained laminate (HPL) back and sides give it a rich look, paired with a solid Sitka spruce top. The DX1RAE features Fishman electronics and a non-cutaway style body. The result: a great-sounding, great-playing guitar that is environmentally friendly and priced within reach of every aspiring guitarist.
