DCX1E Tawny Satinwood
Following on the success of the DX1 Tawny Satinwood model introduced in January of 2007, the DCX1E Tawny Satinwood adds a cutaway and Fishman Classic 4T electronics to create an attractive, functional, stage-ready guitar. This 14-fret Venetian cutaway Dreadnought blends the attractive figured woodgrain pattern of Tawny Satinwood high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides with a solid Sitka spruce top. The rosette is inlaid with a unique Art Deco design, laser cut from contrasting East Indian rosewood, maple and koa. Style 45 maple hexagons are inlaid with inset koa diamonds into a rosewood fingerboard. A hardshell case is optional.
This latest addition to Martin’s environmentally responsible series of Sustainable Wood models is the first Martin guitar to be offered with American poplar for the back and sides. Light in weight with a warm responsive tone, the DCE features a durable polished gloss black finish. This 14-fret Venetian cutaway comes stage ready with Fishman’s new reduced profile 4-image Aura Pro electronics system with an onboard tuner. The greater majority of the wood utilized in the construction of this guitar originated in forests managed in a sustainable and ecologically responsible manner.
