The Martin 00X1AE Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish offers fantastic Martin craftsmanship at an affordable price that enables many more guitarists to grab their own dream model. Built using a combination of solid tonewoods and high pressure laminates, and equipped with the outstanding Fishman Sonitone USB pickup system, the 00X1AE is a fantastic model for gigging guitarists who demand reliability alongside peerless tones.
Superb Martin Craftsmanship
The body is crafted to the 00-body style, which is slightly smaller and shallower than a dreadnought, giving it a less 'boomy' low-end response, creating a midrange-focused timbre with a subtle brightness that adds an elegant sparkle. The smaller body shape makes it very comfortable to perform with, great for gigging and busking with.
The body back and sides are built using mahogany pattern high pressure laminate with textured finish. The laminate stands up well with regard to changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent choice for guitarists who are looking for a model that travels well.
Paired with the back and sides is a reverberant solid Sitka spruce top, which is reinforced using the A-Frame "X-1" bracing pattern. The solid Sitka spruce braces enable the top to resonate freely, whilst minimising damage through warping or buckling over time. The top has been treated to a hand-rubbed aging toner finish to preserve the stunning natural finish for as long as possible, allowing your 00X1AE to age gracefully. Complementing the finish to the top is a tortoise colour pickguard.
Birch Laminate Neck
Fitted to the body is a birch laminate neck in rust finish. The neck is designed to provide the utmost stability during performances, whilst the carefully shaped modified low oval profile guarantees a slender and very comfortable playing feel. Married to the neck is a 20-fret richlite fingerboard, which adds an elegant and resilient playing surface to explore.
Fishman Sonitone USB
The 00X1AE acoustic-electric is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone USB pickup system, which translates the luxurious timbre of the guitar beautifully. Whether you're recording at home or taking to the studio, the USB output allows you to connect to your soundcard, Mac or PC, for direct-recording with minimum effort required.
The Martin 00X1AE Electro Acoustic Guitar in natural finish is fitted with Martin SP Lifespan phosphor bronze light gauge strings, so as soon as it arrives you’re can get playing immediately, and once you pick up this beauty, you’ll never want to put it down.
