Overview

Built on traditional styling and legendary Martin tone, the left-handed DRS1 acoustic-electric is one of the most affordable solid wood models they offer. Constructed with sapele top, back and sides for a very mahogany-like warmth most acoustic players crave with a bit more love on the high end. The modified low oval neck profile, paired with the hand-applied natural oil finish make it a smooth transition along the black Richlite fingerboard. Other appointments include a black boltaron endpiece, white bridge and end pins with black dots, black pickguard, single ring rosette and a Fishman Sonitone undersaddle pickup. While the DRS1 doesn't have a ton of aesthetic extras, it's a solidly built dreadnought that is sure to make you happy to call your own for years.

    Comments about Martin Road Series 2016 DRS1 Dreadnought Left-Handed Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I love this guitar and the materials are top notch and high quality. May sound weird but the sapele smells wonderful too. The neck finish and the fretboard are really fast. Nice bright almost too even tone. I bought this to be be my standard tuned guitar so I can keep my Guild in alternate tunings. I don't regret this purchase at all.
