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 birch 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.

Great sound for the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Bought a minor blemish DRS1 and to be honest, several weeks later I’m still looking for the blemish. Put on a new set of strings when it arrived and it was ready to go. Great sound unplugged or through my amp. The Fishman Sonotone is easy to use and I really like the hidden controls. Great buy for my money.

Love it
What is your opinion of this product?
I have read other reviews that weren't so great but ive been playing guitar for around 12 years and have spent most of that on acoustics and i have fallen in love with the dark sounding tone woods like mahogany and the tone of tgis is right there with a mahogany guitar. I got mine pretty fast and was in tip top shape just had to tune and was good to go everything was in working order

Great guitar!!!
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.

Unfair wear and tear
Your general opinion of this product.
I was impressed with the quality for a low end Martin but, if I had a chance to change one thing it would be the frets. I started playing guitar when I was 11 years old and one of my first guitars was a Korean made Goya. The Goya was designed by C.F. Martin and lasted until I was about 33. The frets on the Goya were shot but the memories are still there. About 10 months ago I bought a DRS1 and fell in love with the sound. The guitar played like a dream and it was exactly what I was looking for to play the occasional gig. However, I was starting to notice a bit of fret buzz and figured it was just a matter of truss rod adjustment. Not so...The first fret had a large divot and other frets were also pitted and worn as if I had played the guitar for years and not months. I was told that it was fare wear and tear but let's be real, a guitar was meant to be played and meant to be a display.
