Martin have almost two centuries of knowledge and expertise in designing high quality instruments and accessories, but the birth of the X Series acoustic guitars came in 1998. The X Series merged together all of the quality expected from any Martin guitar but at less of a cost so that more guitarists can take advantage of the Martin range. The DX1KAE has a Martin dreadnought body profile which has been put together using a range of fine materials to produce the Martin acoustic timbre we know and love.


The Martin DX1KAE has a D-14 platform and has the conventional dreadnought body frame to enable the guitar to produce a full sustain and a range of versatile tones. Martin have employed solid sitka spruce for the body top which is further strengthened by the A-Frame ''X-1'' bracing technique. This bracing not only adds stability to the guitar but expands the range of tones considerably. Martin designed the dreadnought body template many years ago but it is increasingly well-regarded as time goes on due to its fantastic sound and attractive appearance.


Hawaiian Koa is used to construct the back and sides of the DX1KAE because of its ability to resonate but also due to its striking natural pattern. The Koa has been high pressure laminated and given a clear coating for added protection. Securely joining the body by means of a traditional Mortise and Tenon joint is a birch laminate neck with a modified low oval shape for easy playability. A 20-fret black richlite fingerboard sits atop of the neck at a 25.4 inch scale length and feels wonderful to play, even for more complicated movements. It's worth noting that 14 of the 20 frets are open unlike many other acoustic guitars, so you can take advantage of those higher notes easily to the top of the neck.


Underneath the soundhole, Martin have included a Fishman Sonitone preamp. The preamp has subtle volume and tone controls which are easy to adjust under the soundhole to suit your playing needs. The Fishman Sonitone pickup does a great job of translating the sparkling acoustic sounds and tones of your guitar when plugged in.


The Martin DX1KAE has small chrome tuning keys to uphold tuning integrity with precision and accuracy, and the black richlite bridge ensures a solid connection with the strings which means you can perform with confidence.

Beneath the soundhole is a tortoise pickguard to not only protect the body from scratches but to give the natural hand-rubbed urethane finish a contrast in appearance.

The Martin DX1KAE is an outstanding electro acoustic guitar which has a huge tonal range and deep sound all at an affordable price.
