Martin's 1-Series: legendary Martin tone, irresistibly great prices
You'll be surprised by the amazing tone and craftsmanship you'll find from the DC-1E, a member of Martin's 1-Series acoustic guitars. With the 1-Series, Martin set out to create a line of instruments that showcased their legendary acoustic "voice," yet was available at a price that any musician would be proud to afford and own. The 1-Series guitars borrow Martin's most enduring body styles and tonewoods to fulfill this vision. You'll be amazed by the pure acoustic tone you'll find from the DC-1E — and any other acoustic or acoustic-electric member of the Martin 1-Series.

Proven tonewoods and a solid top, for a rich acoustic voice
With the Martin DC-1E, you get the benefit of Martin's legendary dreadnought body style. The dreadnought shape works alongside the DC-1E's tonewoods to deliver a pronounced bass response and a strong, full voice that any player — of any playing style — will appreciate. As for tonewoods, the DC-1E acoustic-electric guitar features two well-respected choices. For its top, the Martin DC-1E sports solid Sitka spruce, which helps to enhance the instrument's strong, present tone. Then, the DC-1E features solid Sapele as its back and sides, to round out the instrument's beautiful acoustic tone.
