Martin & Co DCX1RE
Made in Mexico.
Channel a bit surprising to the touch because of the materials used ...
20 frets with 17 easily accessible through the Cutaway.
Rating: 7

UTILIZATION

The handle is strange to the touch because of the materials used, can be quickly disappointed if we have a contact "carnal" with his guitar.
Then, the cutaway gives access to the latest boxes fairly easy but we must ensure the proper height adjustment of the strings. It takes a special rod to adjust the neck. After the twelfth fret, the strings begin to be very far!
The sound is crystalline, but less powerful. on the other hand, there is a very good resonance (compared to a Takamine EN 20).
But the guitar is light, and the solid top is nice. Beautiful design.
Rating: 7

SOUNDS

The sound is balanced and appealing (we can win the power in acoustic playing with a pick) but like all Martin Dreadnought she deserved a wider sound. Beautiful string resonance Mi-si-la.
Rating: 8

OVERALL OPINION

I acquired two months ago because I have a Martin (a U.S. D1R with a passive sensor Martin) and I wanted an electric for the stage in order to spare my Takamine (EN10 is the wood of the fragile rosette LOL). The neck is amazing and as I wrote the strings a bit high, the materials back, neck and neck are composite material resulting in an aerospace: surprising! We can not do it ... But the sound is balanced, Fishman did his job when it is plugged in, tuner, and integrated anti-feedback. At around 900 euros in the provinces, the Mexican is a good guitar (provided a proper adjustment of the handle) and for lovers of the brand Martin, it will delight. It should be noted that its rating on the occasion (including recently) is around 400 euros (do not buy it to resell it quickly!). With three hundred euros more, you'll have a D12 or D16-US) but sound (note that you will pay the price in this case). It remains a good compromise for a first Martin. Note value for money: 7.5 / 10 because I believe that snooping well, we can dig up a new one or an opportunity to better quality for this price, a hundred or two hundred euros near).

Martin & Co DCX1RE
Made in Mexico.
Handle fairly close to that of an electric guitar.
20 frets with 17 easily accessible through the Cutaway.
Fishman Classic 4 (Medium Severe Acute Equaliser + presence + volume)
I put 9 instead of 10 because they could have put the price of the best guitar preamp.



UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice.
Access to the treble is very easy thanks to the Cutaway. on the other hand benchmarks being on the edge of the handle and not handle, tracking is more difficult.
The ergonomics are excellent (compared to an Ovation, Ovation is thinner and therefore easier to stall, the cons by Ovation has a tendency to slip which is not the case of Martin (I'd draw) . The weight is correct.
This gives a good sound in all cases this is less true with an Ovation.
I put 10 despite the failure of key benchmarks because it is a good way to better control the stick.

SOUNDS

I sold my Ovation and I broke my piggy bank to buy the Martin because of HER.
When we listened to Martin, we do not forget the sound. We tried another and another and we ended up buying it.
Fishman preamp meets quite well the color of the sound of the guitar (it was almost the same sound without amp - you can do even better by putting a microphone shure before the rosette).
Its very balanced. It is a dreadnough, very powerful. When I play alone, there is no need to amplify it. on the other hand in the group I branch on the sound system.
For audio, listen to the video on YouTube you'll have an idea of ​​what it gives. But the best is to try it (unless you're broke, it's not worth getting hurt ...).

OVERALL OPINION

I've had it three months.
I played a lot with an Ovation (which I appreciated), I also played with a Washburn, a Takamine, a SAL and finally an Ibanez. The Takamine is not bad, but it's the sound of Martin's downgrades all.
It is expensive. But is the price to pay for this sound. To start watching the side of LAG, they make good products.
What I like most? THE SOUND. But the handle is very nice.
