Product Description

The Martin DRS1 Dreadnought marks the return of Martin’s Road Series, which was originally introduced in 2001. Designed for working and traveling guitarists on a modest budget who require their instrument to be durable without giving up the quality of its sound. The top, back and sides are crafted of solid sapele and braced for resonance and projection. The DRS1 neck is built with multilaminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability, and the belly bridge and fingerboard are made of Richlite that achieves a similar look to ebony. This model comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
What a great instrument. Martin quality and tone at a great price. I have wanted to upgrade to a solid wood bodied guitar for some time, just didn't want to break the budget. Couldn't be happier.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Flawless.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Very playable. Neck is a little heavy, but I expected that due to it being laminate.

Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Smooth and mellow. Sounds amazing plugged in.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
Very good.

Perfect.

Time will tell....
