Product Description

The Martin XC1T Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar is an absolute must have!!
With features like a Solid Sitka Spruce Top and Back and Sides made of Tawny Satinwood, you'll be thinking this guitar is under priced. A beautiful and unique wave pattern, wooden rosette made of rosewood, maple and koa. The low profile oval shaped neck makes it incredibly easy to play.

Also on-board is the Fishman Ellipse Blend system which combines signals from internally mounted microphone and an undersaddle transducer. Controls (volume, mic/pickup blend, phase) are mounted inside the soundhole for easy access, but unobtrusive. 24.5 inch Scale Length

About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker's craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Overall Rating
Playability and Feel
Unique Guitar
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Solid as a rock except for the internal wiring. Unfortunately there is too much excess wire and if you move the guitar it slaps the side of the body and with the internal mic......well, you get the picture.
How has it stood up over time?
So far great.....but, I'm not very rough on my guitars. The internal mic arm is a bit weak and won't hold position......could be done better.
Your general opinion of this product.
Not your standard Martin but a sweet little guitar. The sound system is great and the overall look stands out.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Guitar feels great. Controls are inside the soundhole and they are a bit difficult to work with.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Mellow is the word.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Looks great. Initially I was afraid it wouldn't hold up but so issues.
How was the action out of the box?
Plays smooth and fast.
