Overview

The DSS-17 Whiskey Sunset Dreadnought slope-shoulder guitar boasts a rich, warm sunburst finish that will delight any player with its aesthetic beauty. It is skillfully crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top paired with mahogany back and sides, and antique white binding. This sweet-looking C.F. Martin guitar features a modified low oval neck with a high-performance taper for added comfort and includes a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, scalloped bracing, and an old-style script logo on the headstock. The DSS-17 Whiskey Sunset produces beautiful, dynamic tones that will please the most discerning musician and comes with a softshell case.

The instruments in Martin’s 17 Series pair mahogany back and sides with a Sitka spruce top for a well-balanced sound full of bright airy trebles, crisp midrange and complex harmonics. Most unique to the 17 Series are the darker wood tones with contrasting appointments and shade patterns that give each of the instruments in this series a distinctive look that is sure to turn heads. The bold and edgy 17 Series guitars are available in a variety of body sizes, and all of them feature Martin’s comfortable high-performance neck that is super easy to play. The 17 Series takes inspiration from guitars that would have been played in juke joints back in the '30s and '40s. Some models come with built-in electronics, and some even offer a traditional slope-shoulder profile like this DSS-17 Whiskey Sunset dreadnought acoustic guitar.
