A stage-ready acoustic-electric with classic dreadnought tone and modern playability.

The Martin DX2E X Series dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar brings together the iconic shape and sound of a classic dreadnought with modern appointments designed for improved playability. Its spruce top and mahogany-patterned high-pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides produce the balanced, projecting tone that made Martin famous. The DX2E dreadnought features a Performing Artist neck profile that is slightly slimmer for comfortable fretting, along with a fingerboard with a flatter 16" radius and beveled edges. This makes chord changes and solos smooth and effortless across the neck. With the Martin E-1 active onboard electronics, you can plug into an amp or PA system and fill the room with the DX2E's dynamic, responsive acoustic tone. The lightweight yet durable HPL construction also makes this stage-ready dreadnought easy to transport from venue to venue.

Classic Dreadnought Design With Laminate Durability

The DX2E carries on Martin's legacy of iconic dreadnought acoustic guitars with its strong bass response and clear, balanced tone. The spruce top resonates brightly, while the mahogany-patterned high-pressure laminate back and sides provide warmth and richness. Together, they create the quintessential dreadnought sound that can cut through a mix on stage or fill a room unplugged. The HPL back and sides are also extremely durable to withstand the demands of gigging and travel. So you get that vintage look and sound paired with modern resilience.

Slim Neck and Beveled Fingerboard for Comfortable Playability

While the DX2E echoes traditional Martin design with its 25.4" scale length and 1-3/4" nut width, the neck has a slimmer Performing Artist profile for comfortable fretting. The fingerboard also has a flatter 16" radius for smooth, low-action playing across the neck. While the beveled fingerboard edges make it easy on your hands during long practice or gigging sessions. Whether you're a beginner or experienced player, you'll find the DX2E to be a pleasure to play on stage or in the studio.

Built-in Electronics Give You Stage-Ready Versatility

The Martin E-1 active electronics system gives you the flexibility to plug the DX2E into an amp or PA system for live performances or recording. It features volume and tone controls, a phase switch to cut feedback and a built-in chromatic tuner. Just plug in via the discreet side-mounted output jack and dial in your amplified tone. The DX2E lets you harness that iconic dreadnought sound in any live or studio setting.

Lightweight Construction Makes it Gig-Ready

The DX2E dreadnought is lightweight enough to comfortably play standing up without a strap and its durable HPL construction means you don't have to worry about dings or scratches at gigs or during transport. The DX2E comes with a padded gig bag, making this stage-ready dreadnought easy to pack up and carry to your next show. With vintage looks and sound paired with modern playability and resilience, the affordable Martin DX2E lets you take on any gig with confidence.
