The Martin DRSG Road series gloss finished electro-acoustic is the perfect guitar and choice for the gigging musician. It's all solid construction creates lush balanced tone without any compromise. The tone is a full rich sound due to the Sitka Spruce top and Siris back and sides, a fantastic new choice of tonewood and sustainability for the planet, giving you a pairing that will always satisfy the demands of today's hard-hitting flatpickers and songwriters.
The Martin DRSG features a Solid Sitka Spruce top with an all solid SIris back and sides. The back and sides are kind of similar to a Koa tonewood which resembles a Rosewood brightness and depth. This electro-acoustic is the traditional dreadnought shape giving the guitar a very recognisable style and feel. As soon as you play the guitar acoustically you can really hear the Martin quality shine through with a huge bottom end without clouding the highs associated with solid wood dreadnoughts. All in a very gig worthy 10/10 affordable Martin Acoustic.
Fishman Sonitone Preamp
The DRSG is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone preamp. The control comes from 2 subtly positioned wheels inside the soundhole offering volume and tone adjustments. Easy access allows you to dial in the correct amount of tone you desire. The Fishman Sonitone does a remarkable job of converting the natural tones of the electro-acoustic into a crystal clear acoustic experience.
The Martin DRSG Road series headstock adorns the C.F.Martin logo which is desired by so many guitarists. Attached are the chrome enclosed machine heads which guarantee to tune at all times. Add to this a black richlite bridge firmly seated on the Sitka Spruce top assuring seamless connection of tone and resonance. This Martin electro-acoustic is a perfect choice for the money from a huge brand which offers quality instruments at very affordable prices.
