The latest of Martin's hard-working, great sounding Road Series guitars, the new DRS2 delivers a unique blend of durability and concert-quality sound and projection. The top is crafted of solid Sitka spruce and braced with Martin's A-Frame (X1) bracing. Back and sides are select solid Sapele, similar in look and tonal qualities to its close cousin, mahogany. As beautiful as it looks and sounds, the DRS2 is a serious working musician's guitar built for on the road durability without sacrifice of tone. The neck is constructed of a multilayered wood laminate called Stratabond that perfectly simulates natural quartersawn wood grain. The fingerboard and bridge are crafted of black Richlite, amazingly similar in look, weight and resonance of ebony. A Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system completes this very road - and stage - worthy Martin.
