The Martin DJr-10 dreadnought junior acoustic guitar delivers full, balanced tone in a smaller form. Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top with sapele back and sides, this instrument is built to Martin's exacting standards with premium tonewoods. The DJr-10's dreadnought body style produces a bold, punchy sound, while its shorter 24" scale length and 1-3/4" nut width provide comfortable playability for smaller hands. The DJr-10 is an ideal first "real" guitar for kids and a perfect travel companion for any player.

Solid Sitka Spruce Top Provides Clear, Articulate Tone

The DJr-10's solid Sitka spruce top is prized for its strength, clarity and balanced tone. Sitka spruce is a straight-grained tonewood with optimal stiffness and damping that helps produce crisp articulation, tight bass and sparkling trebles. As the top ages, the tone mellows into a sweet, musical quality. The solid wood top also allows for more complex overtones and harmonic richness versus a laminate top.

Specially Sized for Younger Players and Travel

With a 24" scale length, 1-3/4" nut width and modified body depth, the DJr-10 is made to fit smaller hands while still producing full tone. The shorter scale makes frets closer together, allowing for easier fingering. The slimmer nut width provides more comfortable spacing between strings. The modified body depth trims excess size without sacrificing acoustic properties. Altogether, the DJr-10's compact proportions make playing and transporting the guitar easy for anyone.

Premium Features and Appointments

Like all Martin guitars, the DJr-10 is built using the highest-quality materials and time-honored techniques. It features a mortise and tenon neck joint, sapele back and sides, modified low oval neck shape and solid mahogany neck. The fingerboard and bridge are made from black richlite, a durable, sustainable material made from resin and wood fibers. Nickel open-gear tuners provide smooth, accurate tuning. A natural satin finish protects the wood while keeping the guitar lightweight.
