The Martin DX1AE Acoustic Electric Guitar gives you Martin quality for a remarkably low price. Get yours from Sam Ash Direct with fast free shipping and the guaranteed lowest price.

Value in an acoustic-electric guitar doesn’t have to come at the expense of sound and construction quality. Case in point: the Martin DX1AE acoustic-electric guitar, which is affordably priced while still sounding and looking great.

The Martin DX1AE acoustic-electric is tailored to fit your needs when you’re plugged or unplugged. Martin’s signature resonance and clarity are apparent in the dreadnought body design and mortise and tenon neck joint. Perhaps the most unique thing about the Martin X-Series, which includes the DX1AE, is the compressed high-pressure laminate wood fibers that make up the guitar’s back and sides. This construction, which also includes a solid Sitka spruce (HPL) top, creates a more environmentally-friendly guitar. The Sonicore pick-up technology and Fishman Sonitone system make adjusting tone and volume as easy as possible for an acoustic guitar. The Martin DX1AE has something every acoustic-electric guitar player wants at a convenient price.

Get your Martin DX1AE acoustic electric guitar from Sam Ash Direct now and enjoy fast free shipping and the guarantee lowest price. Get the security of 85 plus years of Sam Ash experience and our 45/60 day return/price protection policy.

    Comments about Martin DX1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The Martin DX1AE is everything you could want in an acoustic guitar: solid Sitka Spruce top, full sound, comfortable neck, and -best of all- it's a Martin! The laminate mahogany back and sides give the guitar a warm full sound. The guitar also features a Fishman Sonitone system which accurately recreates the true sound of the guitar in amplified settings.

      Comments about Martin DX1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Nice looking guitar with tone to match. Solid spruce top. Won't sound like a D-45 but it is cool for what it is. Top is opening nicely. Note: Does not include case. Also electronics are amazing. Good road guitar. Stays in tune forever. Nothing like C.F. Martin on the Headstock.

        The Martin DX1AE acoustic-electric offers a fantastic sound for a great price. This guitar features a solid Sitka spruce top along with a laminate mahogany back and sides. The on-board electronics are Fishman Sonitone system which offer that classic Martin sound and clarity. The DX1AE is a fantastic beginner guitar or great for the experienced player. Overall, an awesome buy!!

          Comments about Martin DX1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          As an owner of a DX1, I love the guitar. The price is very reasonable for the quality of sound you get. I wanted an affordable guitar that I could take around to various jams and not have to worry about my really nice Taylor. Not only is this guitar perfect for it, it exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

            The DX1AE is an excellent entry into the world of Martin guitars. It offers traditional Martin dreadnought tone at a fraction of their higher end models. This guitar sounds great acoustic or plugged in due to the quality craftsmanship. It is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a reliable, great sounding and affordable guitar.

              Comments about Martin DX1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I was replacing my 45 yr old Harmony mohogany acustic. I set a budget of $500 for myself and spent about 3 hrs in the store playing everything they had in that price range +/- $150. I played the Taylors, the Epis, the Ibenze, the Fenders and of course the Martins and was just about to give in and bust the budget and get a Martin cut away for $760 when the store manager brought out DX1AE. After playing it for a short time I was sold. It played very nicely and the sound is so full and rich. I have always wanted a Martin and after a week I am glad I picked it up. I will probably go back in a couple of weeks and have them lower the action a little, but besiding that the guitar is perfect.

                Just Got this guitar the 3 days ago. Love it! It's cheaper cause it's made in Mexico, however, it is still Martin quality! Its definitely comparable to the more expensive Martins and Taylors. If you're looking for a great guitar, I Highly recommend this one!

                  Comments about Martin DX1AE Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

                  One of the best investments I've ever made. Fell in love with this guitar and the price after shopping for weeks and spending hours playing in store. All in all I spent around $675 for the guitar, Exlir strings, hard-shell case, Planet Waves humidifier and three-year warranty; not sure if there's a better deal out there. If you're not particular about where a guitar is made (Martin's are normally made in Pennsylvania, this series is produced in Mexico) but how it sounds, you won't regret this purchase. Rich and full sound, sounds unreal plugged in with the stock Fishman pickups included. Get the Martin name and sound in a redefined style at a fraction of the price. Everyone who has played this guitar or heard me play has been absolutely blown away. Best option out there if you are looking to upgrade but not break the bank.
