The Martin DC-1E is a six-string acoustic/electric guitar made from standard yet professional material used to create a clear and loud sound. With a 14-fret body style, the acoustic guitar has a Solid Sitka Spruce top, Rust Stratabond neck and an Indian Rosewood Pattern HPL headplate that creates a comfortable feel and look. It also has back and sides made out of Solid Sapele and a fingerboard made with Solid Morado. Since it can be used electrically the model uses a Fishman Presys Plus sound system. Part of the Martin 1 Series, the guitar is a traditional model based off others from earlier decades.

Product info needs one correction. The fingerboard is made of solid Morado aka Pau Ferro. It has a closed grain and feels smoother than rosewood, and is also more stable under heat and humidity changes when compared with ebony.
