Product Description

Who said you couldn't get a great guitar, at an awesome price? If anyone ever told you that, you can look them in the eye and tell them about the Martin 000X1AE acoustic-electric. It's a real-deal Martin guitar with a great-sounding solid Sitka spruce top, with great-looking mahogany-grained HPL back and sides. You'll love playing the Martin 000X1AE for everything from aggressive strumming to delicate fingerpicking - and that makes the 000X1AE a great first guitar for the player still trying to find the right style. An added bonus? The Martin 000X1AE even includes Fishman Sonitone electronics, so you can plug into a PA and play your first solo acoustic show or step onstage with a band with your Martin 000X1AE.

I first played a Martin in 1972 and was blown away by the tone and feel but there was no way I could afford one. While waiting for an appraisal on a vintage bass head at Guitar center, I tried out several guitars and was not impressed until I picked up the plastic Martin. The sound almost brought tears to my eyes. Great tone and volume. I didn't even realize that there were Fishman electronics built in until after I bought it because they are practically invisible. A very impressive instrument. Kudos to Martin Company!

This is truly a quality Martin guitar. It has a solid sitka spruce top with HPL back and sides. Do not be put off by the High Pressure Laminate back and sides. This smaller body guitar is definitely a must have guitar for the budget-minded player who wants a Martin. The Stratobond neck is rock solid. I have 10 guitars and can tell no difference between the Richlite fretboard of this Martin and the ebony fretboard of my Taylor or the Rosewood of my Blueridge or Alvarez guitars. The setup was good out of the box although for my personal preference I did sand the saddle down a bit. The guitar comes with a basic Fishman Sonitone pickup. Nothing fancy but it sounds good through my small Ibanez Troubadour acoustic amp. This is a no frills guitar that looks good, is lightweight, and you can play it for hours with no fatigue. The top is a matte finish with a rosette around the sound hole. Although a very plain looking guitar, it grows on you after a while. The tuners are excellent and the guitar stays in tune.

The guitar comes with Martin SP light strings with the Cleartone treatment (MSP 7100's). I am not a fan of Cleartone strings. I immediately put a set of D'Addario EJ-19 bluegrass strings on it and what a difference in boom and bass response! I love this guitar. You will not be disappointed if you pick one up.
