The DX1KAE acoustic-electric guitar features a D-14 platform and a Dreadnought body design with attractive looks and playability. Pairing the solid Sitka spruce top with Hawaiian koa-pattern high pressure laminate (HPL) back and sides, the DX1KAE Koa features Fishman electronics and a non-cutaway style body. This guitar is truly a "plug and play" instrument.
