Why We Love This Product!

Great First Martin Guitar!

Who said you couldn't get a great guitar, at an awesome price? If anyone ever told you that, you can look them in the eye and tell them about the Martin DX1KAE. It's a real-deal Martin guitar with a powerful spruce top and a Koa-patterned back and sides - that's an amazing combination of tonewoods, for full-voiced, singing tone. You'll love playing the Martin DX1KAE for everything from aggressive strumming to delicate fingerpicking - and that makes the DX1KAE a great first guitar for the player still trying to find the right style. An added bonus? The Martin DX1KAE even includes Fishman Sonitone electronics, so you can plug into a PA and play your first solo acoustic show or step onstage with a band and impress them with the beautiful tone you're getting from your Martin DX1KAE.
