The Martin 000X1 is offered as a starter in the extensive Martin range and delivers a great sound for an instrument this size. Similar guitars of this size are theTaylor: 110 Larriv OM-03 SP and Blueridge BR-43. You'll read many positive reviews of the 000X1 on line, and you can take them at their word. A stickler for authenticity might say this guitar isn't that good, because the body and neck are not made of wood, but don't don't let that put you off track! First thing, this instrument has literally no embellishments. There are fret position markers on the side, for example, but no dots on the fret board. The bridge and fret board are made from Morado. The neck is stratabond, which is a kind of thick plywood, and very solid feel. It has no purling, and the spruce top has a light satin lacquer finish. The rosette is not inlaid, but is a discrete decal. I like the basi look of the 000X1, but then I'm more concerned with how the thing plays. This instrument is very comfortable to hold due to the little body, and I just love playing it. The neck is thin and slick, and the body is not too light. I don't like the feel of a guitar that's too light. The Martin 000X1 is fabricated in Mexico with the right attitude to craftsmanship we associate with the brand. The width at the nut 1-11/16", but feels somewhat more than that. Of course, Martin have the know how to make correct use of the width available. There's enough room to clear the strings with fat fingers, but the strings are spaced well enough enough to facilitate rapid finger movements. The top is braced in the celebrated Martin X-series manner. The instrument plays with impressive tone overall, but it's the bass sounds that really impress - as you would expect with an instrument from the Martin range. The E and A strings exhibit a depth not found in the majority other guitars of this size. The bass tone is bit 'fuzzy', which is great if you like to pick the blues. This fuzzy feel is according to preference, but it suits me just fine. I chose the 000X1AE, which features a pickup under the saddle, and volume/tone controls cleverly fitted just inside the sound hole. The 000X1 comes into it's own when playing the blues, I found. Heavy picking doesn't bother this marvel. The strings might buzz a little, but hey, it's blues! The overall volume is not the loudest, as you'd expect with a 000 size body, but there's plenty of sustain. I picked the bass E and noticed that it was still ringing a long time after. This can make possible some nice effects, such as bending the treble strings some over the top of that everlasting bass note. I hope you find this brief review helpful, specially if you were thinking of investing in this instrument. Of course, there are less positive features I could think of. For example, the spruce sound board is very lightly laquered and can be prone to bangs and scratches. However, the body is probably indestructable.
