Overview

Martin’s Road Series line of guitars features a blend of the legendary Martin tone with solid-wood construction and lightning-fast playability. The Martin DRST2 Dreadnought acoustic electric guitar was designed for the player that is searching for deep, driving Martin tone at an affordable price.

Its all solid-wood construction produces a tone that will rival some of the most expensive guitars made today. To start with, Martin selected a Sitka spruce top as the basis of the tone engine. They chose Sitka spruce because it’s a very expressive tonewood that produces the right amount of tone, volume, and dynamics. To augment the crisp tone of the Sitka spruce, the back and sides is fashioned of Solid Sapele Mahogany. Sapele adds just the right amount of crispness and bass to the sound of the guitar.

Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles, and Martin got your back. The DRS2 has one of the most comfortable necks on the market. The slimmer profile and taper lets you glide across the neck with ease. You will be able to make a smooth transition from your electric guitar to this acoustic. And as an added bonus, the DRS2 was precision setup with one of Martin’s Plek machines. As one of the last steps in final setup process, Martin uses the Plek machine to give you the ultimate guitar setup. If you were to have a technician Plek one of your guitars, it would cost you anywhere from $250-$400. Martin includes this bonus on every Road Series guitar for free. If you’re a fingerstyle player, professional, novice, or singer songwriter, you are going to love the way this guitar sounds and plays.

The Martin DRS2 comes complete with Fishman Sonitone electronics. This compact, easy-to-use electronics package lets you plug in and play. There’s no need for you to spend hours getting a great guitar sound. Just plug in, and you’re ready to go. For easy access, the volume and tone controls are positioned directly in the soundhole of the guitar. This gives you the ability to make changes to your tone in real time.

Martin Dreadnought
Martin invented the dreadnought guitar in 1916 for an East Coast music chain called the Oliver Ditson Company. Back then, players were using smaller, parlor-type guitars that featured more treble and midrange frequencies. Parlor guitars had bass, but it was balanced into the sound. These guitars responded more like a classical guitar, where all the tone was even and balanced. The dreadnought was designed to complement the balanced tone of a smaller instrument, by adding a bump to the bass of the guitar. Dreadnoughts are punchy, and offer payers a broad dynamic range. You can really hit a Martin dreadnought, and the sound will grow the harder you play. Play it softly with a vocal accompanist, and it will blend perfectly with your voice. If you’re playing in a band, The Martin dreadnought has got you covered with the right amount of bass, midrange, and treble. And it can get as loud as you can play. The combination of tonewoods and body produces an instrument that is extremely expressive and dynamic.
