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-sapele body construction. The 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 made of a composite material known as Stratabond, which is made up of layers of dyed birch veneer laminated together under low pressure. 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.

      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!

        Comments about Martin DRS1 Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        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!
