The X Series guitars are constructed with the most prudent natural resources and have superior tone. The backs and sides are constructed of patented high-pressure laminate (HPL) and then joined to a solid Sitka spruce or HPL top. The result: great sounding and playing guitars, environmentally friendly, and one of Martin's best values ever.
