OVERVIEW

Slightly smaller dreadnought body with a more expressive scale lengh and Fishman Sonitone electronics.

Fashioned for player comfort, clear powerful tone and easy action, the Dreadnought Junior is reduced to approximately 15/16" of the full Martin 14-fret Dreadnought dimension (14-1/4" width at the lower bout) with an expressive 24" scale length. A solid Sitka spruce top features scalloped 1/4" high performance X-bracing with a single asymmetrical tone bar. The back and sides are bookmatched from solid sapele, and Richlite, an ebony alternative with similar hardness and appearance, is chosen for the fingerboard and bridge. The Dreadnought Junior (aka "D Jr") comes factory-equipped with Fishman's Sonitone sound reinforcement system and includes a nylon gig bag.

Where do I start to describe this "KILLER GUITAR ! ? Let me start off saying that I'm a working musician with no connection to the Martin Co. Played a Martin Dred Jr. at a local store for at least a half hour. I was very impressed with the rich sound, playability , construction and looks of this guitar. Always like the Dred , however as a petite gal , found the standard size dred guitar uncomfortable to play . Then C.F Martin came out with this gem that includes a gig bag. It's considered a "travel size guitar"...... I'd say it's more like a 00 size guitar, which is "not too small"....."not too big"......"just Right " !

Went back to the store a few days later with the intention of purchasing this guitar. Well... "snooze I loose" ....it was SOLD ! I took a chance buying one online from Musicians Friend ( I like to physically try it before buying . IMO, no two sound alike when it comes to guitars) Musicians Friend had an "open box" at a discounted price stating it was "mint" condition. Gave it a shot & bought it. Received the guitar in perfect condition. Set up was perfect right out of the box, electronics worked fine....YAY !!

Gig bag is just "ok". If you plan on traveling a lot with it , you may want to get something more protective.

The Guitar itself plays as nice as the one I tried at the local store ,.... however the one from Musicians Friend was less $$, no tax, no shipping. Huge savings, especially for working musicians. So...."Thank You" C.F Martin co. for making fine guitars and "Thank You" Musicians Friend for being a "musicians friend" :-)

This is a Nice Little Guitar. It has a Nice Rich Sound. However, like the description says. "it's Little". Its hard for me to fit my fingers in the frets for chords. The craftsmanship is wonderful and what you'd expect from Martin. However I feel this guitar should come with a disclaimer. It does give the specs, however it's hard to imagine how much tighter the fretboard gets after shrinking it by a half inch. I couldn't gig this guitar comfortably. I'll use it for an around the house strummer. It would be Fantastic for a kid that has already progressed in playing and skill enough to warrant a nice Martin.

    Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

    I play it loud, change tunings (I play mostly Joni Mitchell cover and folk music), It have the great ability to change the tunings in a fast and precise way, and stay in tune for days!. The sound is deep woody complex loud and articulate. The accion is great. This is a real Martin, with all the dreadnouth heveven inside of it. Well done Martin!

        Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        I have had several guitars from martin and other manufactures. These two mexico martins I have bought are in every way built as good as them..martin drs2 and the martin Jr.the martin Jr sounds fantastic,I was so close to buying A different travel guitar that had laminated back and sides but had trouble doing it..so glad martin came out with solid wood guitar.has a very robust sound that is definitely martin..not quite as loud as full size dreadnought, easy playability with short scale length.. It has an OK gig bag..I am very pleased..

        The Martin Dreadnought Junior is a must have, period.

        Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        As far as smaller sized travel acoustic guitars go, I've had, and have been playing a Taylor GS Mini for quite some time and although I like the Taylor very much the Martin Dreadnought Junior is a great small scale acoustic guitar. I have a couple Martin acoustic guitars and this acoustic has that un-describable Martin play-ability and feel. It has a little wider neck than the Taylor GS Mini which (at least for me) allows me to play certain chords and hammer on's a bit cleaner with less fat fingering or dead notes. Again, as far as smaller, to scale acoustic guitars go, this is a must have for any guitar player. There's still nothing like a Martin and this new dreadnought junior fits right in.

            Martin got it right with this one. Good quality, great tone with reasonable volume, and the feel of a real, full-sized model, especially on the left hand, with nice neck profile and 1.75" nut. I have several Nazareth martins, and this one seems to have the same high quality construction and attention to details. Kudos to the Mexican luthiers! Very happy with my new Dred Jr!

                Let me say first of all I own 3 top-of-the-line Martins and 3 top-of-the-line Taylors. I can not believe the deep rich Martin sound of this little dreadnought. It is richer than my 00028 Aura Martin. I bought it to take to open mics and travel, but it is becoming the first guitar I pick up. This is an amazing instrument. The neck is comfortable. But the sound is unbelievable. I don't know how they did it.

                  This is a very nice guitar . Always like the dreadnought , however found the size not comfortable for me. The Martin Dreadnought Jr. is perfect in size & sound. All wood , with electronics & comes with a gig bag. It's "gig ready" for the pro & a terrific guitar for the young student as well. Purchased the guitar from MF a few weeks ago at a discount price (open box/blemished) however I can't find a thing wrong with it so I'm very happy. Thank you C.F. Martin Co. & MF !!
