Martin D-X1E Koa Acoustic Guitar - HPL Top

Martin

We took the DXK2AE and reimagined it. The result is the D-X1E. The top, back and sides of this new guitar are constructed from a gorgeous, koa-pattern high-pressure laminate (HPL), generated from premium Hawaiian koa that was specially selected from Martin’s wood stores. It is equipped with Fishman® MX electronics and strung with Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 strings. All this gives the D-X1E a great look to match its room-filling sound. Add in a new soft gig bag featuring headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, and this model is truly a stage-ready guitar.
