The Martin DXM, the lowest priced Martin guitar ever, features Martin's high quality construction, ease of play, and commitment to tone.
Tonally, the DXM has a surprising volume and projection with the warmth and resonance guitarists have come to love from Martin. The DXM's top features a unique solid-spruce reinforced version of Martin's famous X-pattern bracing. Its unusual, half mahogany & half East Indian rosewood split bridge support plate has a dramatic and positive effect on the DXM's tone. The top, back and sides are constructed of a wood-fiber derivative material laminated under high pressure. The DXM features a solid genuine mahogany low profile neck with Morado (Bolivian rosewood) fingerboard & bridge and chrome enclosed tuners. Limited lifetime warranty.
Martin X Series
Martin Guitar has long recognized the serious nature of the earth’s dwindling resources and has focused attention on alternative materials. At Martin they’re also committed to making Martin guitars that are within reach of every aspiring guitarist.
Their breakthrough X-Series features guitars constructed with a combination of highly compressed wood fibers (high-pressure laminate, called HPL) and traditional tonewoods. They’ve found HPL to be an extremely durable and workable material and have crafted ways to build traditional Martin shapes with HPL that yield incredibly long-lasting, affordable guitars. What's more, Martin has managed to build them so they possess that famous Martin sound and playability found in their more expensive guitars.
