OVERVIEW

A smaller dreadnought for all players with the balanced, all-around great tone of sapele.

Martin’s Dreadnought Junior Series guitars feature a blend of the legendary Martin tone with solid-wood construction and lightning fast playability. The Dreadnought Junior 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.

New to the Martin family of Dreadnought Junior guitars, the DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar has all the bells and whistles of more expensive instruments. Constructed of all solid-woods, the DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar produces a tone that will rival some of the more expensive instruments found on the market today. For the top, Martin selected solid sapele as the basis of the tone generator. Sapele is a visually attractive tonewood that is slightly warmer than Sitka spruce. Its warm tone blends nicely with the human voice or musical ensemble. The body is fashioned of solid sapele to add the right amount of depth and character to the sound. Unlike laminate or layered woods that are stiff and lack bottom end and resonance, the solid-wood DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic is an expressive instrument with lots of sustain and tone.

Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles and the DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar 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.

Martin’s DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic has a great sound, fast action and is perfect for the singer songwriter, stage performer, travel musician, session player and aspiring guitar student.

Gig bag included.

    Comments about Martin DJR2 Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Guitar:

    I reviewed the Spruce top version and this one holds true for those comments. Its not as loud as the Spruce, you get less high end sparkle; sound is more focused and muted (less overtones) due to the stiff wood top. If you understand the "limitations" then this version can be better for picking, line playing, everything except big old strumming of chords. Mahog/sapele top guitars get returned a lot because people dont realize its more of a nitch instrument. Love it for what it is and it becomes a really good alternative to "parlor" guitars and you dont have to compromise with laminates here.
