OVERVIEW

The beauty of an all-sepele body with Fishman electronics to properly capture its solid tone.

Built on traditional styling and legendary Martin tone, the DRS1 acoustic-electric is one of the most affordable solid wood models they offer. Constructed with sapele top, back and sides for a very mahogany-like warmth most acoustic players crave with a bit more love on the high end. The modified, low-oval neck profile, paired with the hand-applied natural oil finish, make it a smooth transition along the black Richlite fingerboard. Other appointments include a black boltaron endpiece, white bridge and end pins with black dots, black pickguard, single ring rosette and a Fishman Sonitone undersaddle pickup. While the DRS1 doesn't have a ton of aesthetic extras, it's a solidly built dreadnought that is sure to make you happy to call your own for years.

    Comments about Martin Road Series DRS1 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I've had this for almost 4 years and the guitar is used almost daily. The sound is rich. The battery life is long-lasting. It sounds good acoustically and plugged. The sapele wood smells so good.

    Only con is that it is a pain to change the battery when the time comes because you have to undo your strings but, I'm planning on installing an exterior-access battery box. The other only con is that the bolt at the bottom comes undone but, it usually needs tightening by the time you have to change the battery so, two birds with one stone.
