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 MartinÕs 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 MartinÕs 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.
