Ultramodern Martin 000X1AE w/ 1-11/16" Neck is Ultra Affordable.
The Martin 000X1AE w/ 1-11/16" Neck is made in the 000 (Auditorium) body size, in Style X1 from Martin's X Series of ultramodern Acoustic-Electric guitars.
With a 000 body size that is comfortable and easily portable, the 000X1AE w/ 1-11/16" Neck looks like a classic mahogany Martin, only the back and sides are made of durable high-pressure laminate (HPL) that is paired with a solid wood top of Sitka spruce, which provides a resonant soundboard for a full-bodied voice that is nicely defined, balanaced across the strings when picking, and with a very pretty ring when strumming chords.
This is an acoustic-electric guitar, sounding as good through an amp or sound system as it does unplugged, thanks to genuine Fishman electronics. The 1-11/16" birch laminate neck has a Modified Low Oval profile, making it ideally comfortable for the guitar student or a seasoned guitarist seeking a sleek, fast neck. The Martin 000X1AE w/ 1-11/16" Neck is a very good choice for the budget-minded singer-songwriter, or the sideman playing lead guitar looking for Martin quality and the most tone for the least amount of money.
Being from the X series, the 000X1AE w/ 1-11/16" Neck is made of the same materials as Ed Sheeran's Martin (before Martin made him his fancier artist signature model,) but the larger 000 body size provides a much more versatile instrument when it comes to volume and projection without the aid of a massive sound system.
