Bring That Classic 12-String Sound To Your Own Music With The C.F. Martin D12X1AE Acoustic Electric 12-String Guitar


This D12X1A is a rugged workhorse for strummers with it's traditional Martin dreadnought feel, and it features Martin’s A-frame/X hybrid bracing pattern against a solid Sitka spruce top for a lively responsiveness.

With it's "low profile" modern shape, the neck is similar to the other contemporary Martins. The material used for the neck on  X Series models is Stratabond, which is multiple thin layers of wood that are laminated to form a solid and extremely stable material. The guitar’s fretboard and bridge are made from black Richlite, which is another wood fiber and resin combination that’s finished under pressure and high heat. The D12X1AE has a solid Sitka spruce top and features Martin’s A-frame/X hybrid bracing pattern.

The D12X1AE Dreadnought acoustic-electric 12-string guitar produces a full, robust sound. Pairing the solid Sitka spruce top with mahogany grained high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, the D12X1AE features Fishman electronics and a non-cutaway style body. The result: great-sounding, great-playing guitar that is environmentally friendly and priced within reach of every aspiring guitarist.
