A working musician's Martin with a solid Sitke spruce top and Fishman Sonitone electronics.

The latest of Martin's hard-working, great sounding solid wood Road Series guitars, the Martin DRS2 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar delivers a unique blend of durability and concert-quality sound and projection. Constructed with solid sapele back and sides and Sitka spruce top, the DRS2 is a serious working musician's guitar built with an extra rigid solid mahogany neck to withstand the rigors of touring. A Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system completes this very road- and stage-worthy Martin. The Fishman Sonitone Onboard Preamp System features a soundhole mounted preamp with rotary controls for Volume and Tone.

Includes a hardshell case.

  • Love the sound!

    As reviewed by karen on 6/11/2012

    I was not looking for a Martin or a dread but I was looking for a great feeling neck and a deep, projecting bass. When the sales person at GC put this Martin in my hands I was immediately taken by the sound. The bass notes rang easily but didn't overwhelm. The strummed sound was full and rich. The fingerboard and neck feel so natural...just right for me. This guitar has a satin finish and I am not crazy about satin finishes is really growing on me. The guitar is beautifully flaws I can find yet anyway. The Fishman pre amp does not have is volume and bass/treble. As I rarely use it that is fine for me. I might upgrade to another Fishman at some point but not yet. Anyway, I am falling for this guitar more and more as I play it. It is light, comfortable and I just love the sound. It comes with a great hard case with a soft plush lining. All in all...I think it is a great ax!

  • Great guitar!

    As reviewed by Ashish Dhal on 8/13/2012

    I love this guitar, I tried a couple of other Martins under a grand, but this definitely stood out. To move along the neck is very smooth. It has a very rich sound. I have had no issues with it quality wise, although I have owned it for 4 months or so. Looks really great and plays better.

  • Excellent sound

    As reviewed by JON NONES on 1/2/2014

    Bought this guitar today and love the sound. I've been playing for 20 years, and been using a 20-year old Fender for that long. I got lucky with fantastic projection and bass with the Fender, so I was looking for something to have those two qualities. This Martin has those and more. The tone is so well blended unplugged, and it sounds fantastic when plugged in--more bass. I might even raise the action a little to get more projection. For someone that plays live at bars and wineries about once a month, it's a very solid buy for under $1000.
