  • Martin & Co DX1AE

    Martin & Co DX1AE - "Interesting materials making up a decent guitar"


    Where to begin. The DX1AE is a relatively low cost dreadnought design from Martin that sports some interesting ideas. The guitar's top is plain ol' solid sitka spruce and this is about where the plain-ness ends. The DX1AE uses high pressure laminate …
