Working Guitarist's Martin

The Martin DRS1 acoustic-electric guitar continues Martin's tradition of being a pioneer in using sustainable materials. With its distinctive solid sapele (a close relative of mahogany) top, back, and sides, the DRS1 gives you bright, clear trebles, and warm midrange. The DRS1'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. The DRS1 is equipped with the Fishman Sonitone pickup system, which gives you great-sounding plug-and-play output, onstage and in the studio. The DRS1 acoustic-electric guitar is an incredible value - Martin even includes a hardshell case!

Martin DRS1 Left-handed Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • A value-packed member of Martin's Road Series
  • Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics
  • Low-oval neck profile feels incredibly smooth
A value-packed member of Martin's Road Series

A member of Martin's Road series, the DRS1 gives you amazing sound and snappy good looks in a roadworthy instrument. Top, back and sides are braced for resonance and projection, and the DRS1's smooth-playing modified low oval neck is built with solid hardwood for extra rigidity and durability. The belly bridge and fingerboard are made of Black Richlite, which has a similar look and feel to ebony.

Ready for the stage with Fishman electronics

You'll be ready to perform with Martin's DRS1, which comes equipped with Fishman's Sonitone electronics system. Fishman is a leader in acoustic amplification, and it shows in the natural tone it reproduces in the DRS1 acoustic-electric.

Low-oval neck profile feels incredibly smooth

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin DRS1 acoustic-electric. The DRS1 features one of Martin's amazing modified low-oval neck profiles, which gives you enough girth to hold onto while still allowing you to play faster lines unhindered.

  • An attractive, solid-wood dreadnought with Martin quality throughout

It's hard enough to find left handed guitars. I have recently purchased a custom Les Paul and Epiphone casino. Both playable right out of the box. I was very hesitant on buying an acoustic guitar through the mail. Sweetwater did not disappoint! This guitar is great! Coming from a small town and only using equipment re-strung upside down sucks! I am so glad I discovered Sweetwater. If you are worried about anything coming from Sweetwater, stop now!! They will exceed your expectations!!

Great guitar AND customer service

I couldnt be more pleased overall. I read lots of reviews on this Martin before deciding to buy. I had never heard of Sweetwater, but it came up as the best price in google shopping. So I bought it (well, financed interest-free). I was really surprised by the quality of customer service I received. A rep named Mark called me the day after I placed my order and let me know it was shipping (never pressured me to buy anything else). Then a day later I got 10-12 photos via email. They were studio-quality portraits of my actual guitar (they were so clear you can read the serial number). I received the guitar in 2 days (no tax+free shipping). Everyone that has heard me play comments that it's the best sounding acoustic they've ever heard. I love this guitar and Sweet water made me a customer for life. Oh ya, and it came with a high-end hard case to boot. And they even put a bag of candy in with my guitar!
