The 6-string Martin DXMAE acoustic-electric guitar features Martin’s famous D-14 platform, dreadnought body design. The dreadnought was crafted to produce a powerful, rich sound that is perfect for the singer songwriter, as well as the professional touring and studio musician. The top, back, and sides is constructed using Martin’s famous FSC Certified HPL. For added tone and volume, the top is articulately braced with sitka spruce, in a 5/16 in. scalloped X-bracing pattern. The DXMAE has a powerful, rich tone, with all the sustain you have come to expect from a Martin guitar.
