From Our Research Team:
This Martin is Made to PerformLong a pioneer in using sustainable materials in their guitars, Martin continues this tradition with the DRS2 acoustic-electric guitar. With its distinctive solid Sitka spruce top, solid sapele (a close relative of mahogany) back and sides, the DRS2 gives you bright, clear trebles and a warm midrange. The DRS2's punchy lows (more like a D18 than a D28) make it an excellent choice for miked recording when you've got thicker tracks to work with. But if you're ready to take it out live, the DRS2's built-in Fishman Sonitone pickup provides great plugged-in tone. No matter how you play it, you'll love the true Martin craftsmanship in the DRS2 acoustic-electric guitar.
Martin DRS2 Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Martin DRS2 uses solid tonewoods that typically aren't found on a guitar this affordable. The top is solid Sitka spruce, a choice wood for organic, well-balanced tones. Back and sides are made from solid sapele, which has the same richness and depth mahogany is used for. It's a recipe for vibrant tone that will age gracefully as the years go by.
True Martin craftsmanship
A member of Martin's Road series, the DRS2 gives you amazing sound and snappy good looks in a roadworthy instrument. Top, back and sides are braced for maximum resonance and projection, and the DRS2's smooth-playing, modified low oval neck is built with multi-laminate Stratabond for extra rigidity and durability. The belly bridge and fingerboard are made of Black Richlite, which has a similar look and feel to ebony. But you've only got to strum it once to know that you're holding a Martin.
The DRS2 is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which gives you great-sounding plug-and-play output, onstage and in the studio. The Sonitone system puts volume and tone controls directly in the soundhole for easy access.

by PJ Dippolito from Evans City, PennsylvaniaBought this ax from Sweetwater a couple of months ago. Very nice. Beautiful tone and "punchy" lows that seem to come right out and grab you. The Fishman Sonitone suits this guitar very well. The n... read more [+]eck is as sturdy as a crow bar; no shifting here!! I find Martins a little harder to play than..say a Taylor, but I'm not a fan of the Taylor Expression system. As a result, I like the idea of concentrating a little more deeply on the music I'm playing while enjoying the sound output. The DRS2 is very stable and sturdy. I run mine through a Marshall acoustic amp and WOW!!! This was a great buy; with a case and all. Thanks Martin and thank you Sweetwater for making the purchasing experience so comfortable. close [-]
