Martin introduced the X Series of their acoustic guitar range in the late 90s on the back of over a century of having already produced a wide range of high-caliber instruments. The X Series combines excellent materials and techniques to design superb acoustic guitars that don’t impact too heavily on your finances, making them more readily affordable for the majority of guitarists. The D12X1AE is an exquisite 12-string electro acoustic which has a full-bodied, warm sound that will completely fill the room.


The Martin D12X1AE is shaped to the customary dreadnought body profile which enables the 12 strings to vibrate freely offering an enhanced sustain and resonance as a result. This 12 string has a versatile tonal range with rich harmonics and a dynamic response. Martin have utilised a solid sitka spruce top to complement the body shape, and it is given extra tenacity by the A-Frame ''X-1'' bracing underneath. The dreadnought frame has steadily gained popularity since its establishment by Martin themselves and is now one of the most instantly recognised guitar shapes in the world.


High pressure laminate mahogany constructs the back and sides of the Martin D12X1AE to complement the solid sitka spruce top and promote the overall timbre. A birch laminate neck of 25.4 inch scale length is securely fitted to the body by means of a traditional Mortise and Tenon joint and is given a modified low oval shape to improve playability. A black richlite fingerboard sits atop of the neck and is designated with 20 frets, 14 of which are open. The neck shape and fingerboard material combine beautifully so you can slide up and down each fret with confidence, even during more complicated pieces.


Beneath the soundhole is a Fishman Sonitone preamp to amplify your Martin D12X1AE 12 string guitar. The preamp has understated volume and tone controls under the soundhole which are painless to adjust. The Fishman Sonitone pickup amplifies the distinctively warm acoustic tones of your 12 string guitar when plugged into an amp of your choice.


To best maintain tuning precision and integrity, Martin have chosen to kit out the D12X1AE guitar with small chrome tuning keys. The black richlite bridge holds a firm connection with the strings so you can play for hours with confidence.

An eye-catching tortoise pickguard sits beneath the soundhole to protect the body against scratches but also provides a stunning contrast against the hand-rubbed natural finish.

The Martin D12X1AE is an exceptional 12 string model full of high-caliber sound features and made with top quality materials for a comprehensive and comfortable feel. This X Series 12 string guitar has been built to appeal to guitarists who are looking for something high quality but at a lower cost, so if you have a smaller budget this is the perfect choice and is sure to please!
