For over 175 years, Martin has built a reputation for building some of the finest instruments in the world, used by top artists and highly sought after by avid players.The Martin D-17M Acoustic Guitar harks back to the look of Martin’s early Style 17 guitar, which had a distinctive stripped-back, raw feel. The D-17M features the much loved and desired dreadnought body which is more than capable of producing blistering rock tones and yielding gentle finger-picked whispers.

The top is built from Solid Sikta Spruce, a North American tonewood that is a popular choice in the construction of high-end acoustic guitars. Sikta Spruce has the enviable combination of being more lightweight than mahogany whilst having exceptional resilience, strength and elasticity. This gives the guitar a range of diverse tonal qualities from deep Lows, through warm Mids to crisp Highs without becoming laborious to hold. The top is reinforced using an A-Frame bracing technique, giving further strength to the body to prevent the chance of buckling over time as well as giving a very secure feel to the body.

The back and sides of the guitar are built from Solid Genuine Mahogany, a naturally dense and warm sounding wood that reinforces the mid to low range frequency output of the guitar to give a denser character to the guitar’s sound output. The bellied design of the bridge, coupled with the mahogany back and sides, encourages the guitar to project a naturally fuller sound. Due to the dreadnought body you don’t have to dig in to get a lot of volume out of this guitar as it packs a punch all by itself.

The neck is cut to the Modified Low Oval profile, which creates a comfortable playing position. The neck has a generous 25.4” scale length, which is home to 20 very playable frets. The fingerboard width at the nut is 1-11/16” extending to 2-1/8” at the 12th fret. Although some fingerstyle players may prefer a 1-1/3” width at the nut, the guitar is still very accommodating giving a very agreeable playing surface.

The fingerboard has been from crafted solid East Indian rosewood and contains 14 clear frets with a total number of 20 frets, and is matched with a headplate of the same material.

The body is sealed with Tortoise colour binding. Extra protection has been given to the top with a Shaded Gloss finish – giving the Sikta Spruce top more of a Mahogany look - and to the back with a Satin finish. The position inlays along the fingerboard are composed of diamonds and squares on a short scale from the 5th to the 9th frets. The Open-Geared Tuners are constructed from Nickel with Butterbean knobs. Below the strings a Delmar Tortoise colour pickguard protects the body. The bridge and end pins are finished in Black Ebony.

Posted on 10/06/2017 by The Otley Legend The D17 is on your side. Crisp Martin sound, easy modern fretboard, light to carry and not too expensive to take out. Mine has a K and K pick up which is clear and versatile.
