Martin Guitars DST
Tonal EvaluationThis Martin flattop has the singing top end of a chorus girl and the bottom end of a sumo wrestler! The midrange frequencies really hulk out when you pick hard, helping lead lines cut through any acoustic jam no matter how many fiddles or banjos you have to compete with.
Also, the satin finish lends this guitar a booming low-midrange response that helps keep the fundamental strong amidst all the trebly sparkle. Anyone looking for Martin that’s pretty and mean like an angry prom queen should give this dreadnought a look!
Premium features like forward-shifted braces, ebony fingerboard and bridge, and bone nut and saddle add sonic complexity to this value-priced Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania Dreadnought. The satin finish, solid-wood sapele/sitka DST has a tortoise colored headplate, binding and heel cap. Each classic Dreadnought is equipped with Martin Studio Performance (SP) strings for ultimate resonance and tone, and arrive in a Martin hardshell case.
