Great Martin dreadnought sound in a more accessible size for players of all sizes.

Martin’s Dreadnought Junior Series features a blend of the legendary Martin tone with solid-wood construction and lightning-fast playability. The DJR Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar was designed to create an instrument for the player that is searching for a small-bodied guitar that is easy to play and loaded with all the sound and dynamic nuances of a full-sized acoustic instrument.

A recent addition to the Martin family of dreadnought Junior guitars, this DJR Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar has all the bells and whistles of more expensive instruments. Constructed of all solid-woods, it produces a tone that will rival some of the more expensive instruments found on the market today.

For the top, Martin selected solid Sitka spruce as the basis of the tone generator. Sitka is a very expressive tonewood that produces the right amount of tone, volume and dynamics required to play an acoustic guitar. To complement the Sitka top, solid sapele is used to add depth and character to the sound. Unlike laminate or layered woods that are stiff and lack bottom end and resonance, the solid-wood DJR Dreadnought Junior has crystal-clear highs, a punchy bottom end and lots of sustain and tone.

Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles, and Martin has got you covered. The DJR has a very comfortable neck profile. A 24 in. scale-length adds more power and tone to the sound, while reducing the drag on string tension. The slim neck profile and forest-friendly Solid FSC Certified Richlite fingerboard allows you to glide up and down the fingerboard with ease. You will be able to make a smooth transition from playing your electric guitar to this acoustic instrument.

This guitar has a great sound, fast action and is perfect for the singer songwriter, stage performer, travel musician, session player and aspiring guitar student.

    Comments about Martin DJR Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar:

    Purchased this as an open box, when they ran a 'take an extra 10% off' promotion. When I got it I played it about 15 minutes and decided it really played very poorly. I was really disappointed in my purchase and put it in the closet until I could decide what to do with it. After trying to play it every now and then for 3 or 4 months, I took it down to a local shop and had the neck adjusted and set up correctly. It plays really well now and I am happy with the purchase.
    I had played this guitar in a local store, in the 'e' model and really liked it. I decided that the amplified version was wasted on me and wanted to wait for an acoustic model.
    The guitar has the Martin voice and a great sustain to it. Very easy to play with the 1.5 inch shorter scale. Much easier to make the four fret stretch. Every time I pull it out of the gig bag I think, "it's a toy". After playing it for a while, when I pick up a standard guitar, it takes me a moment to adjust to the larger scale. I'm not sure if I would want to have this as my only guitar.
    The bottom line is: It's a really good guitar, just small, but not kid size small.

      Comments about Martin DJR Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar:

      This is a great sounding 3/4 size guitar that is perfect for travel and practicing when you don't want to take your expensive guitar out. I really like the 1 3/4" width of the fingerboard and the classic Martin dreadnaught tone out of a small bodied guitar. The quality of construction is the same as any Martin even though they use less costly materials.
