Martin 00CXAE Acoustic-Electric Guitar Review :: Martin Guitar Reviews


the electronics allow you a good variety of tone options with a phase switch and the notch nob along with 4 EQ switches.


Description
With 14 frets in the clear and a thin-line, cutaway body to give you access to the higher six, this guitar combines Martin's killer acoustic sound with electric guitar versatility. The onboard Classic 4 preamp and Sonicore pickup provide full, warm acoustic tone with minimal feedback while the jet-black finish sizzles in the limelight. Made from synthetic materials, HPL, it is not an all wood guitar. There are 14 frets in the clear and its a cutaway with addition 5-6 frets easily accessible.
