Product Description

The latest of Martin's hard-working, great sounding Road Series guitars, the Martin DRS2 Road Series Acoustic Electric Guitar delivers a unique blend of durability and concert-quality sound and projection. The top of the DRS2 is crafted of solid Sitka spruce and braced with Martin's A-Frame X1 bracing. Back and sides are select solid Sapele, similar in look and tonal qualities to its close cousin, mahogany.

As beautiful as it looks and sounds, the Martin DRS2 is a serious working musician's guitar built for on the road durability without sacrifice of tone. The neck is constructed of a multilayered wood laminate called Stratabond that perfectly simulates natural quartersawn wood grain. The fingerboard and bridge are crafted of black Richlite, amazingly similar in look, weight and resonance of ebony. A Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system completes the very road and stage-worthy Martin DSR2 acoustic electric guitar.

Playability and Feel
Not Very Durable
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The sapele used in the manufacturing of this unit is very thin and suseptible to cracking along grain lines. Mine cracked within 6 months.
How has it stood up over time?
Regardless of the humidity factor, the back wood cracked. It's touted as very durable but it isn't!
Your general opinion of this product.
I think it has a flimsy back and sides. The stratabond neck is superior and the Fishman Sonitone suits it well.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
This is a very light guitar; almost like balsa wood. The action is complimented by the neck and the tuners work fairly well.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
This is the strongest point of the guitar. Its tome is excellent; plugged in or not. It has the unmistakable Martin sound.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Satin finish is fine.
How was the action out of the box?
Action out of the box was very good. No problems.
