The Basics

The DX1E Dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar is a fine example of Martin's commitment to preserving the earth's dwindling resources and designing guitars that are within reach of every aspiring guitarist. Constructed from mahogany-grained high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides that perfectly complement its solid Sitka spruce top, the DX1E has the "famous" Martin sound and playability found in our more expensive guitars. Embrace the dream of owning your very own Martin guitar.

Left Friendly Guitars

Nearly all of Martin's guitars have the option of being made left friendly.

When you purchase a Martin through one of our approved dealers, you will be able to specify your preference of left friendly at that time.
