    The best laminate guitar ever?

      Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I'll admit I am not a fan of the laminate instruments I have checked out over the years. This DXAE changes everything. The X bracing makes this guitar come alive. I love the Fishman unit in tandem, what a strong sound. I switched the strings to a medium set (.013-.056) and was impressed how rich this sounded. Great for gigs. Looks very cool. I am an employee of Sam Ash in Cincinnati.

      Killer Intermediate Guitar

            Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            If you've always wanted a Martin guitar, you can't really get one for less than this, and this one sounds good. If you've got an entry level guitar, this is a great upgrade, but if you're looking to get into guitar, this is a first guitar that you can keep for a while and be satisfied with.

              Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              The Fishman Sonitone electronics is great for recording or playing in a live gig. The X bracing with the HPL top, back and sides continues to produce that great Martin tone. Right out of the box this guitar's action is very comfortable to play. The body of this guitar fits just right for any player. You do get a lot of value for the price of this guitar.

                  This guitar sounds great for the price and has a solid sound and tone. The Fishman electronics produce a nice clear sound allowing this guitar to sound just as good as it looks with its sleek black finish. This guitar is great for students just learning to play or players who need an acoustic-electric guitar on a budget. Can be used at the beach or live on stage. All around a solid guitar with great tone.

                      This finish is very unique for Martin and I love it. I like that its not a high gloss black that shows every fingerprint and smudge. The sound produced is great and whats expected from Martin and the X bracing. Live sound while amplified is great thanks to the Fishman Sonitone system.

                      This Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar is part of Martin's new X series.

                        This is a very cool guitar for an amazingly reasonable price. Laminate sure has come a long way - this Martin resonates full and rich. The Fishman electronics are everything you'd expect - clean and clear. The neck is particularly comfortable and easy to play. At this price point not many brands could boast a great sounding guitar that is very durable, environmentally friendly, with a great look and quality construction, but Martin has done it.
