Based on the D-14 platform, the Martin DCX1RAE is a full-bodied Dreadnought with the added benefit of a cutaway body shape and Fishman Sonitone electronics, all in an affordable package. Built with a Sitka Spruce top and Rosewood patterned high pressure laminate back and sides, it still has that great Martin sound without the added expense of solid woods. Able to produce a dynamic tone acoustically, this guitar is also ready to fire up at the insert of a cable. This guitar will exceed your expectations with its modest but potent assembly without breaking the bank.
