A Real Martin at a Great Price!

The Martin 000X1AE acoustic-electric guitar is one of those instruments that just makes you want to play it for hours. It's a great find, giving you unmistakable Martin tonality and feel you just won't find anywhere else. You get a solid Sitka spruce top for exceptionally rich acoustic tone, and a low-oval neck profile that makes the 000X1AE easy to play. And with built-in Fishman Sonitone electronics, you'll get great tone plugged in too. Sweetwater's got a great value in an acoustic-electric Martin - the 000X1AE!

Martin 000X1AE Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

  • Solid spruce top for rich tone that matures with age
  • Low-oval neck profile feels incredibly smooth
Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

You'll be ready to perform with Martin's 000X1AE, which comes equipped with Fishman's Sonitone electronics system. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and it shows in the natural tone it reproduces in the 000X1AE acoustic-electric.

Solid spruce top for rich tone that matures with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the 000X1AE, Martin chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your 000X1AE will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Low-oval neck profile feels incredibly smooth

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin 000X1AE acoustic-electric. The 000X1AE features one of Martin's amazing modified low-oval neck profiles, which gives you enough girth to hold onto while still allowing you to play faster lines unhindered.

Martin 000X1AE Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:

  • Classic Martin styling with premium Fishman electronics in a traditional dreadnought design

  • 000-body style is smaller than a dreadnought, producing more midrange-focused tone
  • Sitka spruce "X" bracing enhances projection and tonal balance
  • Solid spruce top adds tonal richness, and will sound even better as it ages
  • Modified low-oval neck profile plays fast and smooth
  • Fishman Sonitone electronics system for excellent sound on stage
Martin puts a spin on their classic guitars with the 000X1AE!

Fantastic beyond expectations

Got this for my girlfriends birthday and of coarse I played it constantly to make sure it was up to par. The neck was in need of adjustment (thanks Martin for no included truss rod wrench) but otherwise a pure joy to play. Highly recommend this guitar!

THE Acoustic for Non-Acoustic Players

I've been playing for 25 years or so and quite frankly, I've never played an acoustic guitar that I enjoyed. (after all, that's what it's really about, right?) I've alway been an electric player, favoring Teles. My acoustic bandmate (who plays American Martins exclusively) and I got the idea to start doing some acoustic duo stuff, so I began searching for something. I landed on this and dear LORD...! It's an absolute dream. The neck fits my hand like a glove (larger hands), the body is not too big or small and the sound is heavenly. It's midrange focused tone fills the void nicely if playing in tandem with a dreadnought, but sounds beautiful by itself. My buddy spent in the thousands for his Martin and he said that he likes the sound and playability of this rascal at least as much as his own, at 1/4 the price. I'm so glad Martin kept the quality level high with these X series guitars. If you're on the fence about this because of where it's made, cast your fears away. The hype is well deserved. Bravo, Martin & Co.!

Awesome Guitar!!!

I own this guitar. It is probably my favorite and the one I find myself picking up most often. While I purchased several guitars from Sweetwater, and have always been blown away by their attention to detail and customer service. I have to admit this was purchased from a local shop. This is a guitar you have to feel in order to truly fall in love with it. The tone is amazing. I picked it up on a whim. I wanted to know what was sooooo great about Martins. Why did they cost so much? Why does everyone speak so highly of them? I played nearly every acoustic in the shop and I was set on going with a used ibanez acoustic, but when I picked up the 000X1AE, I knew I was in trouble. It just felt like a more substantial instrument. You could immediately feel a connection to the instrument. The craftsmanship was aparent. I told the sales person that I was not a good enough guitarist to warrant such a fine instrument. He pointed out that a better guitar makes a player better, because they are more apt to want to play it. He was right. I am 10 times better since I purchased it. I've thought a lot about one day trading up to a more expensive Martin, but in all honesty, I just can't see why I would ever part with this one. Even though it's HPL and composite and all, it doesn't feel plastcky, or cheap. It's just a really, really nice acoustic guitar. And if I would have got it through Sweetwater I would have saved a pretty penny.

great guitar period !

I am shocked at the tone and playability. I can't put it down. My wife doesn't get it.....nobody gets it but i guess i don't expect non players to understand. Know what i mean? I bought my 30 yr old daughter a Taylor GS mini for her birthday. I wish I had bought her one of these instead.

Simple, and Beautiful!

Awesome guitar! It sound soooo good! I have a Taylor DN3 that's twice the price and this sounds just as good if not better. It feels and sounds just sweet to play. Great use of new age materials! Good job Martin!

Martin 000X1AE Acoustic Guitar

While you can't really drive the 000 too hard for rock rhythm playing, if you want an affordable, fingerstyle-friendly small body that emphasizes harmonic accuracy and playability, the 000X1AE will deliver the goods....
