The Martin D-X1E Koa acoustic-electric guitar offers classic Martin appeal at a great value. From the first chord you strum, you'll appreciate the Performing Artist neck profile's fast and fluid feel. And featuring the alluring look of koa on its high-pressure laminate back and sides, the D-X1E Koa looks as good as it plays. Complete with Fishman MX electronics for superb plugged-in tone, the Martin D-X1E Koa acoustic-electric guitar delivers excellence at a great value.

    Sustainable building materials

    Martin is all about sustainability. That’s why they’ve used eco-friendly materials on the D-X1E Koa. The warm and resonant HPL sides and back display a gorgeous pattern. The bridge and fingerboard are made with FSC-certified Richlite. Richlite is a composite material with sonic characteristics somewhere between rosewood and ebony. Richlite is totally unaffected by temperature and humidity change, requires very little maintenance, and feels great under your fingers.

    Smooth-playing Performing Artist neck

    Whether you’re recording at home or playing out late into the night, you're in good hands with the Martin X Series D-X1E Koa. This dreadnought features one of Martin’s acclaimed Performing Artist series necks, whose slimmer profile is easy on the hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort. It's joined to the body by way of a Mortise & Tenon Neck Joint for enhanced sustain and features Martin's High Performance Taper for comfortable leadwork and chording.

    Onboard Fishman MX electronics

    The D-X1E Koa acoustic-electric guitar has onboard Fishman MX electronics, and musicians at Music Experience are impressed at how faithfully they reproduce the warm and mellow tones of your guitar. Since the preamp is mounted inside the sound hole, your volume and tone knobs are within easy reach and are very inconspicuous. With onboard electronics that are this good, you’ll feel confident hitting the stage or plugging in to record.
