Solid top for tone that enhances with age

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the DCX1AE Macassar, Martin chose a solid Sitka spruce top. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully as the wood matures, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Smooth playability from the Performing Artist series neck

Whether you're recording for hours or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin DCX1AE Macassar. The DCX1AE Macassar features one of Martin's outstanding Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort.

Great-sounding Fishman Sonitone electronics

The DCX1AE Macassar is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which delivers great-sounding output onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access.

Martin DCX1AE Macassar Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Martin styling with Fishman electronics in a dreadnought cutaway model
  • Sitka spruce X-bracing enhances projection and tonal balance
  • Solid Sitka spruce top for a rich, lively sound that will enhance with age
  • High-pressure laminate back and sides, with Macassar pattern

Martin DCX

Received the Martin DCX1AE Macasser acoustic electric guitar two weeks ago and really enjoy playing, The action and tome are wonderful out of the box, I like a low string action and this is set up perfect, The spruce top adds to the awesome sound, The back and side laminate has a strange fake look and feel/texture to it which I do not love, also the pickup works fine but the sound is just ok plugged in. I play unplugged 90% of the time so not an issue but not unexpected, I will be very happy with this guitar however and as long as it holds up over the years you can't go wrong.... Yep, a keeper....
