Martin guitars have a unique, piano-like tone revered by musicians and music lovers all over the world. The build quality and materials employed in the construction greatly contribute to the complexity and richness of the tone. Over time the company has found ways to offer the “Martin sound” and feel for a lesser price and accommodate the entry-level and intermediate player. Each series has a typical player and function in mind. This is accomplished by stripping down the features and cosmetics featured on Re-Imagined Standard series models, leaving the essential Martin guitar and giving you the classic and characteristic tone revered around the world.

The bracing pattern perfected by Martin and adopted throughout the industry was the famous X bracing. X bracing is characterised by a certain complexity of tone and delivers the strong, piano-like sound that helped define the steel-strung guitar in 20th-century music and still does today.

The nut width is a broad 1 and ¾ inches, allowing a little more space for fingering and picking. A 1 and ¾ nut width is important for fingerpickers who may prefer the wider string spacing for playing what are called rest strokes.

This guitar is constructed with a specific Dreadnought Junior neck with a high-performance taper.

The DJR-10E Sunburst features a solid sitka spruce top. Sitka spruce is the most common spruce wood in use today. It is good for volume and will age nicely over the first four or five years of the guitar’s life, improving with time.

X series Martin guitars utilise high-pressure laminate (HPL) woods for the back and sides (and for the tops of X1 instruments). HPL provides a stable material with which to construct a guitar body and offer the instrument at an attractive price. The Satin finish is smooth and has a matt texture. It is smart, durable and easy to maintain.

X Series guitars are fitted with Fishman MX electronics. The MX system includes volume and tone controls on the preamp inside the soundhole of the guitar. This guitar also comes supplied with a durable and water-resistant gig bag with headstock, bridge, and endpin protectors to ensure that this guitar can be kept safe and dry whilst travelling.

    Just as advertised and what I wanted.

  • Roberto Marvin Reyes

    Would’ve given it 10 stars but I was a little let down when in just 3 days, I found myself fiddling with the guitar input because it just ‘fell apart’. I had to unscrew and fish for the input inside the guitar and spent about an hour fixing it. I really love this guitar and spent a good fortune buying it and in just 3 days, I experienced that. Nevertheless, very wonderful tone and it’s such a beauty.

    His guitar has exceeded my expectations. Big sound from a smaller body. Very playable, the shorter scale suits me as I have other short scale guitars too. The quality of build from Martin is superb. Would. Highly recommend this guitar.

    Only just purchased this guitar and I am waiting for a set up. Love the size and look of the guitar.

  • Customer

    06/4/2020

    Very pleasantly surprised with this guitar, unlike many travel or parlour size guitars it has a nice open sound and does not sound boxy at all, the finish is immaculate as expected from Martin these days, it is a delight to play with the 24 inch scale. I expected the action to need lowering however it really requires increasing as is does buzz slightly, otherwise a great guitar
