Martin 0-X1E Acoustic Electric - Natural
Say Hello to Your New Favorite Martin
If you mention Martin, you'll be the center of attention. Why? Because Martin has been making world-beating guitars since 1833. With fine tonewood supplies becoming scarce, Martin has had to think outside of the box to create affordable instruments. The fruit of their labor is the 0X1E, a bite-sized acoustic-electric guitar that may just be your favorite Martin yet. Made entirely from handsome mahogany-patterned HPL, it creates a warm, balanced tone. The body is outfitted with a birch laminate neck and Richlite fingerboard for breezy playability. Meanwhile, Fishman electronics re-create a natural plugged-in tone. Whether you're a stay-at-home musician or a seasoned road dog, this miniature Martin is sure to become your go-to acoustic.
Perfect for tough environments
It's no secret that rapid changes in temperature and humidity wreak havoc on traditional tonewoods. If you live in an area with high humidity or massive weather changes, you know that the very air around you can ruin a beloved instrument. To combat destructive weather patterns, Martin started to make guitars out of High Pressure Laminate. HPL is a material that easily withstands seasonal changes and high humidity, thanks to its resin-soaked construction. The Martin 0X1E uses mahogany-patterned HPL to add beauty to an incredibly rugged instrument. No matter where you live, The Martin 0X1E will remain unaffected by anything Mother Nature throws at it.
Onboard Fishman electronics
For greater versatility, Martin added Fishman MX electronics to the 0X1E. It has a soundhole-mounted pickup that faithfully reproduces the warm, mellow character of the guitar. The volume and tone knobs are within easy reach, so you can tweak your tone inconspicuously. Trust us, you'll be impressed by the way your guitar sounds when you plug it in for the first time.
A buzzworthy fretboard, without the fret buzz
Here's the skinny on the revolutionary composite fretboard material Martin used on the 0X1E: it's awesome. Unlike wood, Richlite is unaffected by changes in temperature or humidity. No more winter pitting or spring-swell fret buzz! It's also hard enough to be used as cutting surfaces in the most demanding professional kitchens on earth. The result is a great feeling fretboard that adds killer sustain to your 0X1E.
