The Martin DX420 electro-acoustic dreadnought guitar radiates style, attitude and signature Martin performance.
Celebrating Prop 64, A Guitar with Style
New for 2018, Martin introduces the DX420 acoustic guitar – a fantastic dreadnought acoustic featuring a custom illustration by renowned artist Robert Goetzl.
To celebrate Proposition 64, or the Adult Use of Marijuana Act of 2016, which legalised the recreational use of cannabis in the state of California, Martin Guitars have produced the Martin DX-420 acoustic guitar.
Martin originally released the acclaimed D-420 model in 2017 and have now released the X Series DX-420, bringing the awesome style of the Martin D420 to a wider audience.
Adorning the top of this dreadnought style acoustic is an incredibly detailed custom design illustrated by renowned fine artist Robert Goetzl.
This psychedelic imagery is unique, extremely eye-catching and beautifully produced. A tribute to California mixed with nods to “Prop 64” and beautiful psychedelic imagery – we get the feeling this is the kind of guitar Willie Nelson might like to own.

Incredible Martin Guitars Craftsmanship
Beneath the incredibly intricate “420” artwork is a high-pressure laminate top utilising scalloped X bracing to enhance resonance and projection.
The back and sides of the Martin DX420 are kept natural, contrasting yet complementing the striking design found on the top of the guitar.
Attached to the body via solid mortise and tenon neck joint construction is a tapered Performing Artist neck for high performance potential.
High End Features
Made for incredible playability and amazing sound, the DX-420 has a number of high-end features so you can get high on your performance.
FSC certified Richlite is used for the fretboard which features 20 frets, with the neck joining the body at the 14th.
An FSC certified Richlite bridge is on the body, facilitating great transfer of vibration from the strings into the top of the Martin DX420.
Atop the bridge is a compensated white TUSQ saddle providing perfect intonation while enhancing sustain.
Allowing you to plug into an amp or straight into the desk and still get great sound, the Martin DX-420 comes equipped with a Fishman Sonitone system.
Its soundhole mounted preamp discretely provides rotary controls allowing you to adjust the volume and tone so you can easily get the great sound you expect from Martin guitars.
Unique Design, Incredible Sound
The fantastic, unique art design will get your audience’s attention while the rich, clean articulate tone, great sustain and awesome Fishman electronics will keep them around wanting more.
