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 Road Series DRSG Dreadnought acoustic-electric guitar was designed for the player that is searching for incredible tone, playability, and visual appeal 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 solid Sitka spruce top as the basis of the tone engine 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 are fashioned of solid Siris, a tonewood that adds the perfect amount of warmth and definition to the mids and highs. Unlike laminate or layered woods that are stiff and lack bottom end and resonance, a solid wood instrument has crystal clear highs, a punchy bottom end, and lots of sustain.
The DRSG is the first model in the Road Series to feature an all-polished gloss finish. The DRSG not only sounds great, but it looks like a million bucks!
The Martin DRSG is designed using the world-famous Martin dreadnought body. The dreadnought body is a little deeper than your typical 000 or OM guitar. The added depth gives you an increase in volume, while producing an even tone across the entire musical spectrum. The combination of solid tonewoods and beautiful cosmetic appointments body produces an instrument that is extremely expressive and dynamic. You won’t be overpowered at a jam session when playing this guitar. Martin’s DRSG great sound and fast action is perfect for the singer-songwriter, stage performer, session player, and aspiring guitar student.
Playability is a must for many of today’s musical styles, and Martin got you covered. The DRSG 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 DRSG is precision setup by 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 valued 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 DRSG 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.
