Martin D-X2E Guitar
We took the DX1KAE and reimagined it. The result is the D-X2E. The back and sides of this new guitar are constructed from a gorgeous, koa-pattern high-pressure laminate (HPL), generated from premium Hawaiian koa that was specially selected from Martin’s wood stores. A mother-of-pearl-pattern rosette and fingerboard inlay step up the flash of this model while a new wood neck, bridge, and fingerboard make the instrument lighter and more balanced and offer better sound transfer. It is also equipped with Fishman® MX electronics and strung with Martin’s Authentic Acoustic Lifespan® 2.0 strings, giving the D-X2E superior sound to match its great looks. Add in a new soft gig bag featuring headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors, a durable water-repellent exterior, and foam padding, and this model is truly a stage-ready guitar.
Gorgeous Dreadnought at an Amazing Price Point
Get that big, classic Martin dreadnought sound at a great price with the D-X2E Koa. This beautiful acoustic-electric features a Sitka spruce top with a high-pressure-laminate figured koa body for a gorgeous blend of punchy high end and rich low tone. A select hardwood neck with katalox fingerboard offers wonderful response and playability — ideal for finger-picking or flat-picking and suitable for just about any genre or style. And when you are ready to plug in, Fishman MX-T electronics provide stellar amplified acoustic tone that is as natural as it is full.
Neck designed for hours of comfort
The select hardwood neck with katalox fingerboard features Martin’s legendary High Performance profile with Performing Artist taper which many players liken to a more electric-guitar-style neck. Essentially, the Performing Artist taper means the fingerboard width does not widen as much as you move up the neck (1-3/4” width at nut, but has a 2-1/8” width at the 12th fret), making for an ultra-comfortable feel especially for those longer performances. This taper also can help with those leads and chords that take place in the upper frets, making finger-shaping and runs much more comfortable – just ask the many guitarists here at Sweetwater who love the PA series of necks!
The onboard Fishman MX-T electronics in the D-X2E Koa not only produce outstanding amplified acoustic tone, but they also provide convenience via the soundhole-mounted tuner. This cleverly placed tuner faces upward and features an auto-mute function, so you can tune in silence onstage with a perfect line-of-sight view of your tuning status for each string! But the MX-T system is not just about staying in tune. It also delivers outstanding, natural amplified acoustic tone that lets the resonance of your guitar really shine.
