Overview

In making the 000RS1 Audiortium Acoustic-Electric, Martin guitar set out to build a solid-bodied instrument with all the sound and projection of their more expensive guitars. The 000RS1 was also designed for the working and touring guitarists looking for an instrument with a balanced tone and projection.

The top, back and sides are crafted of solid sapele and braced for resonance and projection. This guitar has a comfortable, low oval neck, built from multilaminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability. The belly bridge and fingerboard is made of forest-friendly Richlite, a material that has a similar look and feel to ebony.

This 000RS1 comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system, featuring rotary controls for volume and tone. The Sonitone is a great-sounding, easy-to-use system that is perfect for stage and studio application. A hardshell case is included to make this an absolutely amazing value.

Amazing guitar, and deal!

Comments about Martin 2014 Road Series 000RS1 Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I am totally amazed with this guitar, especially for under $700! When you consider you're getting a solid wood (front back and sides), PLUS a hard shell case, you just can't beat it! That being said, the solid sapele gives you the warm sound you'd expect from a wood similar to mahogany plis the added punch of a 000 body when you need it! It's the most well rounded sound I've ever heard in a guitar and I would highly recommend it! My only wish would have been Martin adding their Fishman F1 system to it.

Comments about Martin 2014 Road Series 000RS1 Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I am very impressed with the build quality and sound of this instrument. I ordered it sight unseen based on reviews around the internet and I do not regret the purchase at all. The specs here on GC indicate the neck is Rust Stratabond but it is actually "select hardwood" according to the Martin website. I would definitely recommend this guitar.
