Martin DX2AE Macassar Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Solid top for tone that enhances with age
  • Smooth playability from the Performing Artist series neck
  • Great-sounding Fishman Sonitone electronics
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 DX2AE Macassar, Martin chose a solid sapele 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 DX2AE Macassar. The DX2AE 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 DX2AE 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 DX2AE Macassar Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Martin styling with Fishman electronics in a dreadnought model
  • Sitka spruce X-bracing enhances projection and tonal balance
  • Solid sapele top for a rich, lively sound that will enhance with age
  • High-pressure laminate back and sides, with Macassar pattern
  • Fast Performing Artist neck with High Performance Taper for exceptional playability
Get a solid-topped acoustic-electric at a great value, with the Martin DX2AE Macassar.

Product, Price and Service

I've owned this guitar once before and regretted letting it go everyday since I sold it to help finance another higher end Martin I own. This guitar has tone and volume for days!! Clear and very warm almost like cedar but articulate and defined. Think of a mahogany woody sounds with a hint of rosewood clarity and resonance for a mile. It's my go to acoustic without question in any situation! It's that good!! When I saw the "Free" gigbag offer and the price less than I originally paid locally, it was a no brainer. I couldn't believe that they also gave it a 50 point inspection and also set it up for free!! It sealed the deal. Service and communication was 5 star and I owe a HUGE thanks to Joe Copenhaver and Sweetwater for all they do. I will now exclusively use Sweetwater as they have always done right by me and offer service unsurpassed by anyone to date. Hey Joe! You rock brother!!!

Martin Quality Shines

Let me start by saying, I am a working musician. I own several very expensive guitars, two of which are Martins and a Gibson. Recently, we have done several shows outside in the Texas HEAT! So, I set out to find something less expensive to use on these shows. Let me tell you, this is a lot of guitar for the price. Martin quality fit and finish and sound! I am just blown away by what you get for this price point. I highly recommend getting a hard shell case, and the Martin case fits like a glove. The second part of this story is my awesome sales person. I have been buying exclusively from Sweetwater since 2014. I literally have three Guitar Centers within 30 miles of my house, but they don't hold a candle to Sweetwater when it comes to product knowledge, and customer service! I have always had Jeff Bohan as my sales person. Jeff is very honest, and really tries to help find the best fit for your needs. We spoke 4 or 5 times before I decided on this guitar. It is people like Jeff that make me a loyal customer for life.
