Description

Details

Martin have a long-standing reputation for building guitars to an exceptionally high standard, becoming the manufacturer of choice for many top artists and musicians. The DXK2AE electro acoustic guitar is a beautifully crafted instrument that is built to last, produces rich tones and looks absolutely stunning. The powerful dreadnought body is built from koa high-pressure laminate material, which is incredibly resilient and handles humidity/temperature changes very well - making it ideal for those looking for a guitar that travels well. The koa offers a subtle bass and treble response giving it a balanced tone.

The neck is cut to the modified low oval profile and is made from stratabond, a dye impregnated wood veneer that has long been used to form the stocks and handles of guns and bows, but has now been utilised by Martin due for their guitar necks due to its excellent durability and strength.

As an alternative to traditional rosewood or ebony, the fingerboard is made from black richlite. This is a lightweight composite material that is held in high regard due to its incredible strength, which furthers the integrity of the neck.

The neck has a generous 25.4” scale length, which is home to 20 very playable frets. The fingerboard width at the nut is 1-11/16” extending to 2-1/8” at the 12th fret, giving a very comfortable playing surface.

Electronics

The DXK2AE is fitted with the Fishman Sonitone electronics system, which contains an active soundhole-mounted preamp with a 1/4" input jack as well as volume and tone controls. The Tone control can be attenuated to help deliver a thicker or punchier sound, help drop out the midrange when finger-picking and add more depth and articulation for times when you want to strum hard.

Finish

The guitar is finished to Martin’s exceedingly high standards with white corian used at the nut, chrome enclosed buttons and a black richlite bridge - all contributing to ensuring that the strings connection to the neck and body remains steadfast throughout the guitar's lifespan.

Posted on 26/07/2019 by i have owned this guitar for about a year now. it was a gift from a friend, and i am in love with it! as a gigging musician i perform or practice with it everyday, and i am always satisfied with its performance.
Posted on 07/02/2017 by A very nice tone plugged and unplugged a great buy at a good cost
Posted on 16/01/2015 by I only went into Dawsons to look for a keyboard book for my young son, while there I picked up the Martin DXK2AE and was blown away by it. The playability and tone for the money was outstanding, I have a high end Taylor and this is a great companion to that guitar offering a different more woody tone and playing just as well. I went home, bought it on line on finance which was very easy and the guitar was delivered in two days. Highly recommended.
