Description

The Martin DRS1 Acoustic Electric Guitar delivers classic Martin tone and quality at an extremely affordable price.

The Martin DRS1 Acoustic Electric Guitar is distinguished by its all-solid sapele construction. The solid sapele top produces a unique, strong tone that is warmer than spruce and is versatile enough to take on different styles of playing. Sapele possesses a similar aesthetic and tone as mahogany; which makes it a natural choice for finger picking, flat picking, or playing bottle-neck country blues. The Martin DRS1 will deliver the tone you are looking for.

The neck is carved from select hardwood into Martin's comfortable Modified Low Oval shape. The belly bridge and fingerboard are made of Richlite that achieves a similar look to ebony. This is an extremely durable material and creates an environmentally sound option.

For live performances, the Martin DRS1 comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system, which has a preamp mounted in the soundhole with rotary controls for volume and tone and its placement does not interfere with the structural integrity of the guitar. The Sonitone is powered by a 9 volt battery and has an end-pin jack. You will be able shape your amplified tone while delivering classic, lush acoustic tones to your audience. A protective Martin hardshell case is included.

Get classic Dreadnought acoustic tone at an affordable price with the Martin DRS1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy and be sure to take advantage of our fast, free shipping.

    Comments about Martin DRS1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Starting things off, I love this guitar. The finish has a classy look and the sound is great. It has a rich, warm tone and the sound is consistent from a strictly acoustic setting to an amped up performance. I'm a bit of a larger guy and the guitar sits very comfortably when I play. And the Fishman preamp built into the soundhole works great for on the fly adjusments. A must for anyone looking for an amazing guitar for a reasonable price.

      Comments about Martin DRS1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      This beautifully designed, visually appealing and distinguished guitar from the Martin company is everything you'd want and expect from one of the most prominent names in guitar manufacturing. The solid top projects sound without the player having to try so hard and evokes a warm, rich tone due to the sapele. This guitar is ultra comfortable to play and comes complete with Fishman technology which is always reliable. This would be a great guitar for any folk, or finger picking aficionado .

        Comments about Martin DRS1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        I really like this guitar. It plays very well. The frets are perfect. The sound is amazing. However, I was very disappointed when I saw that it was not made in the USA. I realize this isn't a $2000+ Martin but it's not peanuts either and it should be labeled!

          This guitar replaced my Gibson Song Maker Acoustic. HAPPY I PULLED THE TRIGGER.
          This guitar comes set-up perfect, and the Sapele sounds very deep and rich. Nicer than many guitars I have owned in the 2 to 3K price range.
          The fit and finish is amazing, and the true surprise comes when you plug it in.
          BUY IT...YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
