Grand Concert with solid Sitka spruce top, frames and back made of HPL and Fishman Sonitone Pickup
With the 00LX1AE, the traditional manufacturer from Nazareth, Pennsylvania, presents a compact Grand Concert Western guitar from the popular X series, offering the legendary Martin sound at an affordable price. In addition, a shortened scale of 632mm provides a pleasant and soft playing feel, while the compensated bridge insert made of Graph Tech TUSQ provides a clean intonation and a flat string position. Thanks to a solid Sitka spruce top combined with an HPL body, this Grand Concert resonates with a broad and dynamic sound spectrum. The Fishman Sonitone pickup is available for amplified stage use, reproducing the sound of the guitar with natural dynamics and harmonic balance. Last but not least, chrome-plated die-cast mechanisms provide tuning stability and precise tuning.
