The Martin X Series is an affordable range of guitars featuring Martin's signature sound and built-in electronics for easy amplification. The D12X1AE 12-string model comes with the classic combination of a solid sitka Spruce top with Mahogany HPL (High Pressure Laminate) back and sides. And you can be sure that you'll sound just as good amplified, with the inbuilt Fishman Sonitone electronics.

The Martin Guitar Company prides itself as a leader in the use of sustainable materials for instrument construction. A stand out feature of this guitar, born from this ethos, is the use of the Richlite Paper Composite material for the bridge and fingerboard. Tested by Martin and proved to provide properties ideally suited for instrument construction, Richlite is hard-wearing, with the appearance of ebony, while being fully FSC certified.
