As part of their Road Series of electro acoustic guitars, Martin have released the DRSGT, delivering an instrument that resembles the Martin Style 18 dreadnought in appearance and tone, with a few new tricks up its sleeve.
The dreadnought body shape is a classic, combining tonal versatility with uncompromising sound quality. Across the tonal spectrum and throughout the dynamic range, the dreadnought-shape executes each note with distinction and clarity. The playing feel is robust and has a familiarity that makes it incredibly comfortable to play.
The DRSGT body is crafted using solid sapele for the back and sides, partnered up with a solid Sitka spruce top. The sapele generates loads of energy, which creates the thumping driving force that dreadnoughts are known for. The Sitka spruce top acts as the highly resonant soundboard, which projecting sound efficiently so that each and every note rings out truly and transparently.
Martin's A-frame "X-1" top bracing pattern gives the Sitka spruce top all the support and freedom it needs to resonate fully to project sound efficiently. Thanks to this you have a wide dynamic range at your disposal that allows you to add deft creative texture to your performance.
A cool black pickguard protects the underside of the strings from unwanted nicks and chips, preserving the integrity of the soundboard for as long as possible. Black boltoran binding ensures the edging between the top and sides is guarded against accidental knocks and lends itself to the guitar's slick overall look.
The solid sipo neck and black richlite fingerboard create the perfect counterpoint to the powerful body. Your playing style is faithfully honoured thanks to the graceful articulation of each note. The neck has a layer of protection thanks to a gentle satin coating, allowing a fast-playing feel so that moving up and down the neck is an absolute delight.
The DRSGT comes fitted with the Fishman Sonitone USB electronic system. If you need a bit more power for a larger gig the 1'4" jack allows you to hook the guitar up to an amp, or whatever else you fancy. For recording straight into your DAW there is even a USB connection, making it even easier to get your songs down.
The black richlite bridge guarantees a seamless connection between your strings and the body - adding to the excellent sustain properties. Chrome enclosed tuning machines with small buttons carry out the task of maintaining tuning integrity with absolute precision, allow you to play exactly how you want to with total reassurance.
The Martin DRSGT is powerful electro acoustic that gives you a complete touring, recording guitar in one. If you're looking for a high-quality, versatile guitar then you've found it. You even get a Martin 345 hardshell case to carry it around in, so as soon as it arrives you're good to go!
