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 guitar and Excellent AMS service
What is your opinion of this product?
I love the DRS1 I received in January, just 2 days after placing the order on the AMS website. It was a late Christmas present to myself ; ) I've been interested in this guitar for a few years and played it many times at Chain Store (as well as all the much MUCH more expensive guitars I'd never pay for). Working with AMS allowed me to actually buy it and own it and play it at home. I love the instrument, if you're wondering about the DRS1, stop. Buy it, you won't find a higher quality, sweeter sounding acoustic at this price point, I played them all. It's hard to put it down, the tone, feel, and even scent all inspire me to practice and play every day for long stretches at a time. I've improved so much in only a month, its hard to believe. My ears (along with the ears of every other guitarist I know) can't tell this beautiful Martin was made in Mexico. You can decide to spend that extra $1000 more you have laying around on a comparable piece just because it was built using similar materials by people with the same skills employed and trained by the same company in a different building, but only if you like wasting money unnecessarily and want to try to impress people with your expensive guitar instead of your playing. Well sorry, I don't really want to knock anyone, I guess if you have the cash, sure, go for a D15M or D18 or hell a D28 too (I probably would!!) but if you're just a normal person like me with kids and a full plate of expenses and responsibilities, the DRS is JUST.AS.GOOD!!! I already knew about the guitar, though. What I didn't know was how easy it would be to get it through AMS, no hassles, no problems, excellent service on great gear. I was sceptical at first and honestly thought I was probably getting scammed until it arrived at my door, sounded too good to be true. Stop worrying! AMS is the real deal, everything has been exactly as advertised. I really appreciate the no cost 5 payment financing plan, thank you for extending the joy of music to people who can't always just plop down a stack of cash for quality equipment and end up settling for crap, getting frustrated and maybe even giving up. Mexican Martin and AMS saved me from that sad fate! ORDER YOUR GUITAR TODAY!!!
