A bold-sounding acoustic-electric with smooth playability and plugged-in versatility.

The left-handed DX2E X Series ziricote dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar from Martin Guitar blends classic design with modern enhancements. Its iconic dreadnought body style projects a bold low end, while the spruce top and high-pressure laminate (HPL) ziricote back and sides deliver the renowned Martin acoustic tone. The guitar's select hardwood neck and fingerboard offer smooth playability. With its sloped modern belly bridge and refined string spacing, you'll find this acoustic-electric to be comfortable during extended practice sessions and live performances. Plugged in, the onboard Martin E-1 electronics with chromatic tuner provide amplified versatility.

Smooth Playability With Select Hardwood Neck and Fingerboard

The DX2E acoustic-electric guitar features a select hardwood neck and fingerboard that lend themselves to smooth, comfortable playability. The neck has a Performing Artist profile that feels slim and fast. A 1-3/4" nut width provides ample room for fingering chords and single-note runs. The fingerboard has a 16" radius for comfortable chording anywhere along its 20 frets. Dot inlays mark the fret positions with easy visibility. Together, the neck and fingerboard offer a familiar feel that makes this acoustic-electric accessible for guitarists of all levels.

Enhanced Comfort With a Sloped Modern Belly Bridge

Martin designed the DX2E's sloped modern belly bridge to maximize playing comfort. Its refined 2-5/32" string spacing reduces hand tension when fretting notes and forming chords. The bridge's contoured top sits smoothly against your palm for relaxed strumming over long periods. Whether you're practicing at home or performing live, this modern belly bridge helps avoid hand fatigue. Focus on your music rather than how your hands feel.

Iconic Martin Tone From Spruce and Ziricote

With its solid spruce top and high-pressure laminate (HPL) ziricote back and sides, the left-handed DX2E acoustic-electric guitar produces the renowned Martin tone. The spruce top vibrates freely for excellent resonance and projection. Its satin finish enhances the wood's organic appeal. The HPL back and sides offer the exotic visual beauty of ziricote paired with the rugged durability that makes this guitar suitable for gigging and travel. Together, these tonewoods provide the bold bass response, balanced midrange and crisp treble definition that Martin acoustics are loved for.

Plugged-in Versatility With Onboard Electronics

When you need amplified volume, the DX2E acoustic-electric guitar equips you with quality electronics. The onboard Martin E-1 system includes a built-in chromatic tuner for quick tuning adjustments on the fly. Volume, tone and phase controls let you dial in your amplified tone. Feedback rejection circuitry helps tame unwanted noise at higher volumes. The E-1 preamp has a discrete class-A output stage that accurately captures the DX2E's natural acoustic dynamics and resonance. Just plug into an amp or PA system and this Martin acoustic-electric projects your tone with power and clarity.
