Today only, as part of its Deals of the Day, Musician’s Friend is offering the Martin Special X1AE Style Acoustic-Electric Guitar for $359.99 shipped. Regularly $600, like it still fetches at Amazon, this model is currently on sale at Guitar Center for $500 and is now at the lowest price we can find. You’re saving up to $240 with today’s deal. The Martin X-Series is a great option for practice guitars, travel or those getting started for the first time. It features a solid spruce top with a customized rosette as well as a back and sides made from forest-friendly HPL — a material that is much more resistant to warping and cracking while on-the-road/in less than ideal conditions. This model also features a Fishman pickup so you can plug it in as well as play it acoustically. Rated 4+ stars. More details and guitar deals below.
While there are starter instruments out there for less, like this Fender Squier bundle, Martin brings nearly 140-years of experience making professional instruments to the beginner space with its X-series. Needless to say, this is one practice/starter instrument deal that’s worth a closer look. Gator makes a hardshell case specifically for this Martin that sells for $90, but you will likely be just fine with an off-brand $20 gig bag in most travel situations.
