Some guitars just make you want to keep picking them up and playing them. Here's an amazingly affordable Martin that does just that! Sure, the DX1RAE may be a great find just because it gives you a real solid-topped dreadnought at a great price. But, it also gives you that unmistakable Martin tonality and feel you just won't find anywhere else. You get a solid Sitka spruce top paired with a durable Indian rosewood-patterned HPL back and sides, and a low-oval neck profile that makes the DX1RAE easy to play. Plus, this beauty comes complete with great-sounding onboard Fishman electronics!

We Welcome Part Exchange
We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.
How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.
You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
