The 000RS1 is part of Martin's new Road Series model range of electro acoustic guitars. The guitar combines the excellent construction quality we've come to expect from such a prestigious manufacturer that incorporates a superb selection of tonewoods and some added features that gives it amazing versatility, at a price you cannot afford to miss. The auditorium body shape is excellent for fingerstyle players, or those who prefer to play a guitar that has a body shape slightly smaller dimensions than those of a dreadnought.
The 000RS1 is crafted from solid sapele for the back and sides, with a solid Sitka spruce top. The sapele does what it does best, ensuring a very balanced and full-bodied lower frequency response for a pulsing heartbeat. The Sitka spruce top is the perfect counterpoint to the sapele as it ensures the upper frequency range is well represented and can hold its own against the deep timbre of the back and sides.
Martin's A-frame "X-1" top bracing pattern gives the Sitka spruce top all the support and freedom it needs to resonate fully. As Sitka resonates very efficiently, this gives the 000RS1 a huge dynamic range, allowing you to command your sound with incredible precision.
The solid rust stratabond and black richlite neck and fingerboard combination serve up a beautiful playing surface to play on. Each note across the fingerboard rings out articulately and the sustain from the neck/body combination allows you to pour your heart and soul into your playing, secure in the knowledge that the 000RS1 will faithfully produce the sound you want with ease.
The 000RS1 comes fitted with the Fishman Sonitone 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.
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 allow you to make tuning adjustment readily, and otherwise keep your strings securely fastened throughout each performance.
If you're looking for a high quality, versatile guitar then you've found it in the Martin 000RS1 is. You even get a Martin 330 hardshell case to carry it around in, so as soon as it arrives you're good to go!
