The Martin 000X1SAE Custom Sapele Edition Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish, is a modestly proportioned model that is perfect for practising on, writing and travelling with, and is equally at home in the studio, as it is on the stage. By utilising high-pressure laminate for the back and sides, and pairing that with a resilient solid sapele top, this is a hardy guitar that responds well to life on the road - great for all you ambitious travellers. With the addition of some superb Fishman electronics alongside the exquisite Martin build-quality, you have an exceptional guitar that is highly affordable.

Fantastic Tonewoods

As noted, the 000X1SAE body is crafted using solid sapele for the top, a tonewood that offers an energetic delivery, which makes it well equipped to handle its duty as soundboard. Not only does it produce an enviable dynamic response, but the natural grain doesn't look too bad either.

In keeping with their environmentally-friendly attitude, Martin have employed high-pressure laminate (HPL) for the back and sides, which is finished in black to add contrast to the sapele. The HPL contributes depth and warmth alongside the brighter articulation of the sapele. Combined with the diminutive body proportions, and the 000X1SAE produces a delicately balanced output that sings with the utmost clarity.

The body top beneath the soundhole and along the lower bout is protected from pickscrapes that can occur during performances by a delmar pickguard. Protection has been given to the woods in the form of polished gloss to the top, back and sides.

Birch Laminate Neck

The birch laminate neck is shaped to the low oval profile, which guarantees a reassuring feel in the hand without feeling cumbersome or bulky - perfectly matching the lightweight and carefree feel of the body. Married to the neck is a black richlite fingerboard, which is home to a total of 20 frets, with 14 frets clear of the body. In keeping with the stripped-back aesthetic, Martin has positioned side dot position inlays along the fingerboard. The tuning machines with uphold tuning integrity with the utmost precision. The nut maintains string tension keenly, whilst the black richlite bridge provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation and sustain.

Fishman Sonitone Electronics

The Martin 000X1SAE has been equipped with the Fishman Sonitone electronics system, enabling you to produce the same rich tones whether you perform acoustically or are playing through an amplifier. The Sonitone system allows you to translate the breadth and depth of tone offered by this sublime guitar with complete transparency. You can rest assured that no matter how big your stage is; your timbre will sing with gusto.

The Martin 000X1SAE Custom Sapele Edition Electro Acoustic Guitar is everything a gigging guitarist could ask for – sturdy construction, utmost playing comfort, rich timbre, and versatile electronics. Grab one, hit the stage, and get playing!

Great guitar
Posted on 17/10/2016 by Data I have had one of these little beauties for just over a year now and can honestly say that it is lovely to play. I mostly record these days with less time gigging, and the pickups, although fairly simple, one might even say basic, are excellent for their tone reproduction.

The tone is fabulous, the playability wonderful, and the smaller size means that you don't feel like you have to climb onto the thing with a scaffold.

Everything you have come to expect from a Martin, and being way less expensive than the American manufactured version, this is definitely a guitar worth looking at for any serious musician.

It keeps its tuning really well too!
Awesome quality for the price
Posted on 18/09/2016 by Stevie T DO NOT LET THE MAN MADE MATERIALS OF THIS GUITAR PUT YOU OFF!! I wasn't a believer either until I tried one, the solid sapele top sounds beautiful and balanced, more than any other guitar I tried in the same price range. I don't know if it's something to do with the high pressure laminated back and sides but it has such a nice tight bass which is just what I was after. It also has a little more sparkle to my ear than Mahogany tops. I really love the stratabond neck too, it feels really solid and is finished really smoothly. Please try this guitar out if you're after a Mahogany or Sapele topped guitar, you really won't be disappointed.
