Yes: horribly overpriced and made from terrible materials (avoid HPL at all costs). I would never purchase an X series Martin.

Just do a search for "X Series" on these forums. It's . . . among the worst guitars made in its price range.

Honestly, my mom has this guitar...and I like it. Its held up well over the past couple years, and has a decent sound. But on the flip side, there are really bad ones of this model too, it really depends on which one you get.

Actually, that's an utter fallacy. If you don't have a problem owning a guitar made out of drywall, then by all means. These guitars are as standard as possible. They aren't handmade; there are no deviations between them. These are some serious cookie-cutter guitars.

HPL is similar to dry wall.


Wrong household construction item. It's made out of the stuff they use to make cheap countertops. It's basically particle board with a silk screen picture over it and then plastic over that. Drywall is basically chalk or concreat depending on the type of drywall you are using.

None of the Martin X series guitars are any good.
Not taking any online orders.

It doesn't really vary from guitar to guitar... what varies is whether or not you are able to take care of the guitar. If you can keep the guitar in a humidity controlled environment, these are actually pretty darn good guitars. They sound really great. They are just more trouble to maintain than a wooden guitar.

ohh. hmm, the only reason i said drywall was because i read in an interview of someone at the martin factory giving a tour said something along the lines of... "now we don't like to call this the drywall room(as they walked by the X series contruction), but..." something something rather... ohh well, maybe im just wrong then.
