Level of craftsmanship/ overall attention to detail is outstanding for the price point - looks, sounds and plays like a higher-end model

Black Micarta fingerboard looks and feels like Ebony - uncommon feature for this price point

Not a solid body guitar - laminate siding may result in unwanted tone "coloration"

The Martin DX1R is a six-string acoustic guitar that's a high-end model because it's designed with class and constructed out of durable materials that improve sound and quality. With a 14-fret body style, the guitar has a solid Sitka spruce top, a solid Indian Rosewood Pattern HPL headplate and Indian Rosewood Pattern HPL Textured Finish back and sides. It also has a Natural Stratabond neck and black richlite fingerboard that makes the guitar have a more comfortable and smoother feel to it. An inexpensive option, the instrument is a great choice for musicians looking for a solid yet high-performance guitar they can use for individual practice and jam sessions.

Had this guitar for a little under two years now and it is amazing. I managed to get it for about $850 but it sounded about the same as the $1,200+ Martins that I was playing prior to picking this one up.

The solid spruce top feels and smells (strange, I know) amazing and the neck and fretboard feel great. The strings that come on it are top-of-the-line, too (I've actually yet to replace them and they still sound pretty good... something that's just unheard of).

It's relatively cheap but it makes me sound like Neil Young... It's perfect.
