What a guitar!!

By guitargal

from New Haven, CT

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have probably had about 8 guitars over the past 40 years (acoustics and electrics)and this is by far the best one yet. I had sold my Taylor 110 and was looking for a guitar that had solid woods with great sound, and one that I intended to keep. The solid rosewood and spruce top of the DSR have that wonderful Martin sound, great bases and bright trebles. The action was a little bit high, so I had a Martin tech set it a bit lower and also install a strap button on the heel. It also came with medium gauge strings which he changed to lights. I just love this guitar, I can't put it down, I am always playing it! It has a mod low oval neck, which is very comfortable. I went to the Guitar Center with the intent that I would have to pay much more than the $899.99 that I paid for it at the GC Green Tag Sale. I played almost every Martin (not the electic models) in the store, guitars that were 2 to 3 times more expensive, and chose this one over the others because of its great sound. I also called Martin - they emailed me the specs on the guitar and said it was modeled off of the D28. This is a great guitar and you will not be sorry with your purchase.

What a value!!!

By Hagman

from Portland, Or

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

As an owner of a Taylor 614CE and other guitars, I was looking for an everyday knock around player. I tried the lower end Taylor, Epiphone Masterbuilt, Breedlove and others. And then I picked up the Martin DSR. The sound overwhelmed me. And then I tried other Martins's including D-28, but nothing sounded better than the DSR. Great neck, great feel and easy to play. What a sound, what a value.

Best Bang for the Buck! Hands Down!

By FinallygotmyMartin

from Vero Beach, FL

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've been playing on and off for pleasure and in bands for about 30 years. I've always wanted a Martin, but never really wanted to spend the money. I went out to look at the new Epiphones that everyone is raving about. I played a few of them, and they were okay, but not really great. While I was there, I decided to play a few Martins - all of them actually. When I strummed this one, I could not believe the sound! My wife actually spun around, and said how great this guitar sounded. The DSR was clear, crisp, full, and completely filled the room. The action was perfect, and it was the easiest guitar I have ever played. I played for a few minutes, and it was awsome. When I finally had the nerve to check the price, I was again amazed. My wife looked at me, and said "Buy it". Honestly, this sounded better than the D-15's, D-28's. etc. It really was the best playing, best sounding Martin in the store. My advice - forget those Epiphones, and spend a few more bucks on a REAL guitar! I've waited 30 years for this, and it was worth the wait. I've had the DSR for about a month now, and I just can not put it down.

MARTIN QUALITY WITH TAYLOR TONE!!!

By lemonadewade

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

After purchasing and being disappointed with several guitars, including two martins I decided to go to Taylor to get the tone I wanted... After selecting a 2200 dollar Taylor I was waiting for them to box it up, I just happened to grab the DSR-GC I played it for a minute and fell in love and have been in love for over a year now... thanks Martin and guitar center.

Beautiful rich tone, great price!

By E-Tar

from Allston, MA

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've owned and played Martins and Taylors for years. I was looking for deeper tone than my Taylor 410 (a great guitar, but not the resonance of a martin) I played nearly all the Martins and Taylors in 3 stores and the DSR stood out, even compared to guitars two or three times the price. I played 3 DSR's to find a gem, but what a gem! Deep rich bass and clear trebles. No frills, but solid wood quality build attractive guitar, and AMAZING tone. You got to check it out.

love it!!!!!!!!!!

By Mikee lites it

from North Branch, MN

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have had it over a year and I still know (not think)that it is the best sounding guitar I have ever played or heard. When I was in the store I played every acoustic thay had. With money in my pocket and willing to pay thousands, I found my new axe for just over a grand. Best money I have ever spent, NO DOUBT.

MY DREAM GUITAR...

By Jong Sarceno

from Sherman Oaks, CA

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've been saving money for years to buy a great sounding acoustic guitar. I've been wanting the Taylor 310 or the Martin D-18. I tried both and made a verdict that Martin D-18 is my preferred one. Just when I finally got the money for the D-18, I decided to try back the D-18; but when I got to the store I tried the Martin DRS and it sound even beter than the D-18 and the price is lesser. I didn't think twice. I bought my Martin DRS that day! A super great sounding acoustic guitar with ALL solid wood with back and sides made of solid rosewood. I finally have a great sounding guitar and its made by Martin. Thank you GC for the great deal!

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

At Guitar Center one day playing their acoustics and came across the Martin DSR-GC. Apparently Martin made these models only for GC and Musicians Friend. Priced around $1200. Very crisp clear lows, highs and great ringing sustain. Couldn't really believe my ears at first when comparing it to even a D-28 and a Gibson J-45 that were also hanging on the wall. I sat there for over an hour just switching back and forth with the other guitars. Finally convinced myself that this particular DSR sounded more beautiful than all the others or anything else I had owned previously for that matter. The off the wall I was playing had a ding in the spruce top so they took a brand new DSR out from storage. I thought I would buy that but just to make sure I compared it to the demo model I had been playing. Couldn't believe it. The demo sounded so much better in comparison to the brand new identical DSR so I said the hell with it I'll just take demo with the ding in it. They took $100 off the price for the ding and I left a very happy customer with one of the best sounding guitars I had ever played. I know Most folks already know this but I can't stress enough to play and compare as many identical models as possible to make sure you know what your getting (as opposed to just buying one from a mail order dealer and crossing your fingers hoping you will get a good one)

The best Martin I have owned

By rick

from Warwick, RI

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned several Martins over the years, D-28 and a Martin Eric Clapton edition to name a couple and I have to say this is my favorite. From the soft satin finish to the amazing tone this Martin cannot be beat! The fact that the price is so reasonable for an American made Martin is just an extra bonus. I went into Guitar Center with about 5 grand in my pocket to spend on a new Martin and I was not looking at prices, only the sound and this one stood above the rest! I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone, from pro to beginner. GO BUY THIS GUITAR! You will be so happy that you did!

You Will Love This Guitar!

By James

from Lees Summit, MO

Comments about Martin Custom DSR Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I went into Guitar Center to just "look around". I strolled back into the acoustic room and was just checking out Taylor and Gibson prices. Then I looked over in the corner and saw the DSR realized it was a Martin and sat down with it. I played it first and then picked up several other Taylor, Gibson and other models. Then I came back to the Martin DSR which was the first one I played. My wife, who had her back to me wheeled around and said "That one, that's the one that sounds the best". I said "I know, that's what I thought but just couldn't believe the sound for the price". This guitar resonates and rings after playing a chord as if you were holding down the sustain pedal on a piano. It has a matte finish which I think is really cool and the rosewood back and sides fill the room with a beautiful wood smell. I have had my DSR for about a year and a half and I love this guitar. Comes with a hardshell Martin case. This is a deal!
