      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.

              Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I'm a staff reviewer at Sam Ash in Cherry Hill, NJ. This guitar is all about being maintenance friendly. The HPL finish is resistant to just about anything. Harsh weather, dings, humidity, liquids. The best part about it that this guitar sounds great. Like it was made of some great woods. The highly pressurized ply-wood neck is as strong as a baseball bat. If you are someone looking to run around with your guitar a lot and you like the look of black and saving lots of money this guitar is definitely for you.

              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.

                      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.

                            Martin is notorious when it comes to putting out incredible guitars and they continue to surprise me with the level of craftsmanship they put into even their mid-level guitars. Don't let the low price fool you, this guitar stands up to the level of high quality guitars that Martin is known for!
