The DX1AE is one of eight models that feature in Martins X series line-up. The X series range all feature HPL ( High Pressure Laminate ) tone woods in one form or another. HPL is an alternative to a solid or laminate piece of wood. HPL is a thick, durable laminate made from layers of paper and resin, moulded and cured under high pressure. A wood veneer effect, in this case a mahogany pattern is added to give the effect of a true wood finish. The result is light and strong and looks just like guitar wood. HPL guitars are virtually trouble-free in high-humidity environments. Perfect material for a guitar you play outdoors, for busking or for taking on holiday. If you want a workhorse for gigging the X series HPL guitars are a great choice as they're incredibly strong and can take all the demands a gigging musician's guitar needs.

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!

Here's what Martin say about the DX1AE

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.
