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 Sitka spruce and braced with Martin's A-Frame X1 bracing. Back and sides are select 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.

Product Review

Played many guitars before choosing the DRS2. Love the satin finish and the plain appearence. Put 12-54 80/20 strings and it sounds great. Have owned for 2 years and no problems. Came with a good hard case also.

Its a beautiful, all wood Martin! I love it

Product Review

Its the cheapest way to get into the Martin family with a solid wood guitar, not laminate or HPL. The action was perfect, and since the Plek'd it before shipping I expected that other than maybe a truss rod adjust or something due to shipping and temperature. I didnt have to do either. They ship with a battery already installed for the pickup system, too! I was very pleasantly surprised about the case- usually Martin ships without unless you are getting something like a D18. The case is a Martin branded TKL, also. Very nice. The order arrived on time, and well packed, with no hassles. Thanks!

Great instrument for the home musician.

Product Review

This is a fine instrument. Martin did not “cheap out” on it so they could give the free case. I chose it because Martin pioneered the dreadnought body style and x-bracing. This guitar has both.

At this price the sound is amazing!!! plugged in or not!

Product Review

At this price, I was expecting a guitar that was just a cheaper made version of a Martin, but I got a guitar that not only sounds great, whether plugged in or not, but plays really well too. Love the satin finish! ready for the road!!!

Good guitar for the money.

Product Review

Playability is great. It just feels natural in your hands. Only had this guitar about a week and its' voice seems to change daily, (always for the better). Quality seems very good even though it's made south of the boarder. I returned a Fender PM1, a DRS1, and a Taylor A10e. For me, they had insufficient volume while the DRS2 sounded much better. Sound quality is very Subjective so you may feel differently. Also, not a fan of the strings that come with it. Strings change tonal quality dramatically. If you've played for a while, you know what I mean. I'm not an expert as I have been playing about 2 years and have played many guitars at different music stores. This is as good or better than any of them. I suggest you play many different models before you choose. I did, and found this to be what I was looking for within my price range. Good Luck with your choice.

'WHAT A GREAT GUITAR THIS IS'

Product Review

Well I put this guitar down long enough too give it a review. This guitar has changed my life to the absolute better. Thank you AMS for letting me do 8 payments.I got the 2017 model Drs2, inside says Road Series on the white label instead of just Drs2. It has a hard wood neck solid-not there Statabond neck which I like also. Your first look and feel of this guitar won't give it the justice it deserves. You probably will think the action a little high and its really light in weight and the finish is pretty raw-no gloss here. But once you play it, the sound will tell all...its a born Martin..theres no one that can copy that. I feel as though I been playing out of tune for years on my other guitar.Thats where this guitar has changed my life.The balance of tone and spot on intonation is overwhelming, You will now realize you own a Martin.Just wished they haven't of cut out for a battery box though.Not a big Fishman fan.But this guitars worth ever penny in my book,believe me can't go wrong.

Martin Road Series Acoustic is very exciting

Product Review

Martin Road Series Acoustic is very exciting for someone like me who's been around for 20 years I mean playing actively generally guitars that cost less then a thousand are not my cup of tea honestly don't have the appointment or the attention to detail that I really like in a guitar that being said this guitar comes in at just under thousand and I was Lucky enough to purchase a lightly used one at about half that making this the most affordable guitar that I own I use the word affordable because this is anything but a cheap guitar this guitar sounds very good plays very well and is super fun to play but joy to see from across the room a lovely appointed guitar with many features Basic yet blooming with awesome literally have not put this guitar down since it came earlier today I took the time this evening to write this review yet I feel like I should be playing the guitar I could go on and on about how great this guitar is but you really should just go try one for yourself you will not regret it some of the best money I've spent this year should mention that this guitar does not sound like my other Martin guitar it has a unique voice more modern an American very nice addition to any guitar collection as well as just a lovely guitar to play can't wait to bring this out to rehearsal all the boys are going to drool because she's so damn hot this guitar also sounds really good with my normal guitar amp which I usually play a Les Paul through I think this is an awesome thing this guitar actually sounds good through a guitar amp I challenge you to plug in most acoustic electrics into a guitar amp and see what you get or should I say hear what you get fantastic guitar I can't say enough good things about it you should really get yourself one happy picking remember it's all about the experience.
