Not many guitars today can boast the same heritage, history and popularity than a Martin Dreadnought. It takes its name from the legendary battleships that ruled the seas 100 years ago, and as the largest body in the Martin fleet, it offers a loud, bold acoustic voice unrivalled for volume and projection. A solid sitka spruce top with A-Frame bracing sounds superb for rhythmic styles, combined with a HPL textured back and sides. The DX1AE retains all of the gorgeous aesthetics of the more expensive D Series, without the price tag.
The rust-coloured Stratabond neck is shaped in a comfortable "low oval" shape that many players agree accommodates complex chordal playing more comfortably. A black Richlite fingerboard sits atop the neck, matched with a richlite bridge and a hand-rubbed body finish.
And if you're plugging into a PA or Amp for a live show, Fishman Electronics deliver stunning sound quality and transparency to get your acoustic voice heard as it should be.
