Martin DX1

Anyone had any experience with this? It seems to be widely loved and affordable. I was thinking of going for it. I could also go for a Cole Clark FL1 if I find one for under 1k.

So is this Martin actually good, or are people hyping over it because of the name?

It's, like, so ironic.

BTW, I don't know if the Martin comes in both and acoustic-electric and just normal acoustic version, but I will be opting for the acoustic-electric one.

I had one a while back before I sold on to a friend. Personally I liked the tone and playability and only sold because I upgraded to a D18. I am always surprised at how good it sounds when I play it at my friends. Generally it gets criticised by some for being predominantly made of HPL but I didn't find that to be a problem, although it did make it a bit on the heavy side.

if i had the choice between a DX1 and a cole clark FL1, i wouldn't hesitate - i'd get the FL1. you can't beat all solid wood for resonancem and cole clarks sound great. the DX1 isn't bad for a solid top, and it has more bass than some of its competitors. it wouldn't be the guitar for me, but it's not bad.

after talking to people who own martin X series guitars, i'd say that there's a combination of wanting to own a martin and the fact the guitars aren't bad. they don't, however, sound like the iconic martins that make everyone want a martin.
