OVERVIEW

Full, robust sound in a comfortable 12-string.

The X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar features Martin’s famous D-14 platform, dreadnought body design. The dreadnought was crafted to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for the singer songwriter, as well as the professional touring and studio musician. 

Pairing the Sitka spruce top with the mahogany-pattern HPL back and sides, the X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a powerful, rich tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar. The mortise-and-tenon neck joint ensures solid construction of the guitar, with optimal resonant tone, while eliminating drop-off in the finer dynamics. 

The Martin guitar's laminate birch neck is a multilayered wood creation, bonding layers of wood under extremely high pressure. The material is then carved and finished in a conventional manner. The end result is a very strong neck that provides definition and articulate sustain from note to note.

The modified low oval neck shape, 25.4 in. scale, 1-7/8 in. nut width, and 16 in. radius provide comfort and dexterity when performing intricate movements and progressions along the black Richlite fretboard.

This X Series Martin acoustic-electric guitar comes compete with the Fishman Sonitone. The Fishman Sonitone features a soundhole-mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone. The controls are mounted conveniently under the soundhole. All you have to do is plug in and play. You’ll have a great acoustic guitar sound, right out of the box.

Dressed in a satin finish and featuring chrome tuners, chrome hardware, this guitar has the look and sound of a highly collectible Martin guitar, but goes for a price that anyone can afford. Embrace the dream of owning your very own Martin guitar, at a price that is too good to pass up. The Martin X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar arrives stage ready-just plug them in and play.

Comments about Martin X Series D12X1AE Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been a hard core Taylor man for a long time. I own 3 six string acoustics and a 12 string. The 12 string is the 150e. I ordered this "low end" Martin 12 string mostly because I wanted a Martin and I love 12 strings. Have played them for 45 years.
Got it delivered in 24 hours. Fastest ever from anywhere. Straight out of the box, tuned it and wow! It has the sound of a much more expensive guitar. Harmonic vibration makes the 12 string have the sound of 12 strings. The harmonic string balance is awesome. Fills the room with sound. Neck is near perfect and easy to play. Beautiful guitar with a good balance.
I am convinced. I put the Taylor in it's case and put it away. I will give it to someone who wants it.
You looking for a twelve string, descent price, easy to play and awesome sound, look no farther.
