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.
