Vintage Martin Dreadnought Acoustic Voice
With the Martin D12X1AE-L you get the full-range warmth and rich harmonics you'd expect from a 12-string acoustic. Combined with Martin's trademark attention to detail and crafstmanship, the D12X1AE-L is head and shoulders above everything else in its price bracket.
High Quality Construction
Martin get a great balance of sound quality and affordability by pairing the solid Sitka spruce top with mahogany-grained high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides. Not only is the use of HPL environmentally friendly, but it also remains lightweight for easy transport and travelling.
A Pleasure to Play
The low-profile neck Martin use for the D12 and Standard Series is wonderfully comfortable, even for longer studio or live sessions. Faster fingerpicking is made easy, as well as more traditional, full-on dreadnought rhythm styles.
Tonewoods and Preamp
Fishman Sonitone electronics deliver outstanding amplified tone for live stage players and provide great detail and definition.
Using the finest tonewoods, time-tested bracing, and precision assembly, Martin guitars have a rich, warm sound all on their own. Yet the D12X1AE-L is surprisingly affordable, giving you access to signature Martin tone that fits even the tightest budget.
