Durable & Affordable Without Sacrificing Tone

Martin X Series guitars are made for musicians that want the freedom to play how, where, and when they want without breaking the bank. Delivering legendary Martin tone, the X Series will easily make the transition from the couch, to the stage, to the great outdoors.





LEGENDARY MARTIN TONE

Martin knows great tone. It is embedded in every instrument we make and the X Series is no exception.


TRAVEL FRIENDLY

Got a gig coming up? Vacation? Backyard BBQ? The X Series was made to travel with durable high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, and all models come with a high-quality gig bag for safe transport.


DURABLE

While all guitars require proper care and maintenance, the HPL on X Series models helps resist blemishes and scratching more than their solid-wood brothers and sisters.


PLAYABLE

Featuring a two-way adjustable truss rod and setups aided by Plek technology, the X Series delivers the playability modern musicians need.


COMFORTABLE

Pick up an X Series and you’ll see why it checks the box for comfort. It’s available in a variety of body shapes and styles for every player, and all models come with a comfortable, high-performance neck, making the X Series a pleasure to play.


GREAT VALUE

You will be hard pressed to find another guitar that offers so much for such a great price. The X Series has a guitar that will fit almost anyone’s budget.
