Performing Artist neck profile, for buttery-smooth playability

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you've got a Martin DXAE Black acoustic-electric guitar. The DXAE Black features one of Martin's amazing Performing Artist series necks. The slim profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in total comfort.

A buzzworthy fretboard, without the fret buzz

Here's the skinny on the revolutionary composite fretboard material Martin used on the DXAE Black: it's awesome. Unlike wood, Richlite is unaffected by changes in temperature or humidity. No more winter pitting or spring-swell fret buzz! It's also hard enough to be used as cutting surfaces in the most demanding professional kitchens on earth. The result is a great feeling fretboard that adds killer sustain to your DXAE Black.

The Martin DXAE Black comes equipped with Fishman Sonitone USB electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage or plug into your computer for easy recording. The pickup is mounted inside the soundhole, giving you easy access to volume and tone controls. Fishman is a world leader in acoustic amplification, giving you exceptional plugged-in tone with the Martin DXAE Black.

Fantastic Guitar.

This guitar is absolutely everything you could want at this price point. It just oozes Martin quality and has amazing sound to match. Plus, it looks stunning. The only drawback is the lack of an integrated tuner, otherwise the built-in electronics are solid.
