MARTIN DX1

The Martin DX1 was a budget acoustic that used modern materials in place of traditional tonewoods. The back and sides were high pressure laminate - with a wood textured finish. Martin used traditional wood for the soundboard which was made from solid Sitka spruce. The neck was made from Rust Stratabond - a type of plywood. The fingerboard and bridge were made from a type of phenolic called Black Richlite.

MARTIN DXK2

The Martin DXK2 was part of the budget X series. Martin used modern materials in its construction with Hawaiian Koa pattern high pressure laminate (HPL) top/back/sides, stratabond (plywood) necks and black richlite (phenolic) fingerboards. These modern materials means that the DXK2 does not require any finish.

The DXK2 was replaced by the DXK2AE acoustic electric model around 2010.
