The DSS-17 Black Smoke comes with a solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back & sides and a Black Smoke finish. The 14-Fret, slope-shoulder body shape delivers traditional Martin projection and tone while the Black Smoke finish provides a stunning, head-turning look.

Solid Wood Construction
Solid wood construction is the mark of a fine guitar & the 17 Series DSS guitars come with solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back & sides.

14-Fret Slope-Shoulder Dreadnought Body Shape
Martin's first Dreadnought was a 12 fret Slope Shoulder created in 1916. This body shape, combined with a 14-fret neck, allows higher access up the fret board and delivers warm Martin tone.

Black Smoke Finish
The satin Black Smoke finish creates a stunning visual effect against the antique white binding, rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and Ivoroid pickguard.
