12 string


Great affordable 12 string from Martin, Nice punchy tone and it stays in tune well! Great workhorse guitar! The sound is unmistakable Martin and the high pressure laminate back and sides look good and don't ding dent chip or scratch easy. Built in electronics are convenient and easy to use. keep in mind that these guitars still have plenty of solid wood used in the construction so you will still have to humidify these guitars during the dry months. The guitar has a comfortable body shape and a nice feeling neck. This is a hands on review, I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash Music.

Good 12 String


I just played one of these the other day, and they really do sound great. If you're looking for a good 12 string, but don't want to spend a lot of money, this is the one, and it's a Martin. Martin's about the best brand you can get. This has been a handson review by Rock'n Dave Alford at Sam Ash, Canoga.

Great Addition


Most folks who are looking for a 12 string already have a 6 string or many 6 strings that they like. A 12 string's a very specific sound that you may only be looking for in certain sections of songs. For that reason, you don't want to spend a fortune on something you're going to use on a song or 2. Yet, you want something that's going to hold up in quality to your workhorse 6 strings that get used all the time. This is your guitar, then. It's high quality with a great sound, but at an affordable price. This is a hands on review from Josh at Sam Ash, Canoga Park.

" Huge Sound for the money "


The Martin MD12X1AEX Is a traditional full body dreadnought body with great electronics and a great feel . Full body , nice , warm traditional Martin warmth that you would expect from there product line. The price point is perfect for such a quality instrument and makes a great gift or upgrade for someone who already owns a few 6 string acoustics.
