The Martin 00X1SAE Custom Sapele guitar gives the classic Martin a modern twist. A gorgeous solid sapele top with a hand rubbed finish give this guitar a unique, rich sound with awesome presence. The guitar's neck is made from a birch laminate, with Martin's usual Richlite fingerboard and beautifully dressed frets. The Richlite fingerboard is sturdy with the same appearance and feel as ebony. The guitar is finished off with a tortoiseshell pickguard. The Custom Sapele is gig-ready with a world class Fishman Sonitone pickup system installed.
