Johnny Cash was famous for his one-of-kind baritone voice, distinctive all-black wardrobe, and — as acoustic guitar aficionados will attest — his beloved Martin Dreadnought. The Martin DX Johnny Cash supplies you with a stylish facsimile of his signature axe, at a price that’s sure make any guitarist smile ear to ear. This acoustic-electric guitar boasts the unmistakable Martin feel and tonality, along with a comfortable Performing Artist-profile neck and Fishman electronics for top-notch plugged-in tone. The Johnny Case DX A/E includes an eye-catching black satin finish, custom “autographed” rosette, and star fingerboard inlays with CASH at the 17th fret — it’s a must-have collectable for all Johnny Cash fans.
Performing Artist neck profile for buttery-smooth playability
Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you've got a DX Johnny Cash A/E. This easy-playing guitar features one of Martin’s amazing Performing Artist series necks. The slim profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in total comfort. You’ll find nary a guitarist here at Sweetwater who doesn’t appreciate the great feel of Martin’s PA-profile necks.
A buzzworthy fretboard, without the fret buzz
Here’s the skinny on the revolutionary composite fretboard material Martin used on the DX Johnny Cash: It’s awesome. Unlike wood, Richlite is unaffected by changes in temperature or humidity. No more winter pitting or spring-swell fret buzz! It’s also hard enough to be used as cutting surfaces in the most demanding professional kitchens on earth. The result is a great-feeling fretboard that adds killer sustain to your DX Johnny Cash acoustic-electric guitar.

The Martin DX Johnny Cash comes equipped with Fishman MX electronics that are ready for you to hit the stage. The pickup is mounted inside the soundhole — it’s the epitome of discrete. Fishman is a world leader in acoustic amplification, giving you exceptional plugged-in tone with the DX Johnny Cash.
