      I was a little leery about the laminate body, but I think it actually increases and enhances the sound.
      This thing made all my other acoustics sound like toys. You've got to play it to believe it. Buy it now...

        Comments about Martin X1-DE Custom Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Solid Spruce Top HPL Back & Sides:

        i actually like the plain jane looks. no edge binding or inlays, but still looks like a beautiful, quality instrument. the solid spruce top gives you a loud, full tone. sounds like a martin, at an entry level price. it does in fact have a truss rod, after 2006 they are buried deep in the hole, you need a 5 inch wrench to get to it. made in mexico, but who cares? i'm not a huge fan of the fishman pickup, but that's really just nitpicking. it's a martin. buy one.
