Hailing from the exceptional X Series, Martin have released the Westside Custom Sapele Edition II electro acoustic guitar. Martin’s X Series was initially introduced in the late 90s and each model from the range was designed with the intention of retaining all of the high-calibre, captivating qualities and features of a Martin guitar but at a more affordable price. The Martin Westside Custom Sapele Edition II is a magnificent electro acoustic guitar which has been built using a culmination of premium materials but at a modest price.


The dreadnought body shape was created and developed by Martin themselves originally in 1916. Since then, it has undoubtedly become one of the world’s most revered guitar profiles. The DX1SAE dreadnought model has the capacity to generate a full-bodied acoustic timbre with plenty of sustain. To partner this body frame, Martin have employed a solid sapele soundboard on the Westside Custom Edition which is a pragmatic choice due to sapele being an all-purpose and sustainable type of tonewood.


Martin have elected a black high pressure laminate tonewood to make up the back and sides of the DX1SAE. High pressure laminate is a composite blend of paper and resin and has a durable, sturdy feel.

A birch laminate neck is firmly joined to the body of the Westside Custom Edition II guitar and had a modified low oval shape which feels exceptionally strong and robust but also comfortable. Atop of the neck is a 20-fret richlite fingerboard with a 25.4 inch scale length, and when incorporated with the neck profile it allows you to easily glide along the frets smoothly and confidently.


Beneath the soundhole, Martin have equipped the Westside Custom Edition II guitar with the 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 splendid job of converting the acoustic sounds and tones of your guitar when plugged into any amplifier in any room or venue.


Martin have decorated the DX1SAE with an inlaid soundhole rosette and Delmar tortoise pickguard which both complement the appearance of the guitar. To the lower bout of the guitar is a 1 style belly bridge constructed from richlite like that of the fretboard, and it upholds a firm connection between the body and the strings for a clear-cut timbre.

Beneath the soundhole inside this incredible guitar is a Martin Custom Edition label to set this model apart from its counterparts.

The Martin Westside Custom Sapele Edition II is an absolutely first-rate electro acoustic guitar which comes off the back of almost two centuries of guitar creation and development. The Martin DX1SAE is a premium quality electro acoustic guitar which is given a more economical price that anyone can take advantage of.
