          Untraditional looking martin

          By 

          from San Antonio

          Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Very unique looking for an acoustic guitar (Johnny Cash would be proud) great Martin feel and tone. Not much negative to say about his, aside from it's slightly darker sound, I know that is a little vague but I can't think of another way to describe it.
          Overall a cool looking and good sounding guitar.

          • Gigs

          Comments about Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Martin's DXAE shows that their HPL technology can offer nice tone in a budget package while keeping "green" and not contributing to deforestation. Their High Pressure Laminate system delivers nice, balanced tone - not as loud or rich as with a solid spruce top, but certainly more than enough for gigs. Add the Fishman pickup and the DXAE holds its own in most ensemble gigs and singer-songwriter performances for both strumming and fingerpicking. This is a real "hands on" review from John S @samash Manhattan.

                The Martin DXAE Black Acoustic-Electric Guitar is a must have for any eco minded people who love guitar. The High Pressure Laminate it is made from helps use less resources by using scrap wood that's "trash" and turning it into this beauty. It has a great sound and beautiful feel. The Fishman electronics are as usual a great addition.

                  This is a great guitar on multiple levels. It's an affordable Martin that provides an easy playing neck which is great for novices as well as seasoned guitarists. The Fishman electronics deliver predictably great tone. The HPL finish allows this guitar to be less likely to have problems with temperature and humidity changes and makes it an ideal guitar to bring camping. This guitar would be great for any beginner or veteran looking for a durable guitar they don't have to worry about destroying in travel.

                    The High Pressure Laminate gives the player a rigid feel and a full sound.The "X" bracing also adds resonance to your sound. Traditional martin build with a modern approach.

                              The DXAE Series is a well balanced rounded out Dreadnaught series Martin that is under $ 600.00 and in most affordable guitars budget. The sound is brilliant and full and actually sounds more like a higher end model , they took no shortcuts on this one and makes for an awesome sounding guitar/. Highly Recommend !!!

                                    I like the Martin DXAE. I think it is a very innovative instrument. The top back and sides are made with Martin's HPL or High Pressure Laminate, a process that uses smaller pieces of wood that would usually go in the trash as scraps with a mixture of glue and creates a solid and durable guitar body that can take a lot of abuse. I think it sounds and plays great along with the fact that the finish is extremely durable- it stands up to scratches and dings very well. The neck is stratabond, which again, uses smaller pieces of wood and creates a sturdy neck that looks good and plays well. The fingerboard and bridge are made from Richlite which is made from highly compressed recycled paper. It's a great playing, very affordable guitar that is made in a very environmentally responsible and friendly way. This is a real hands on product review by Sean@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.
