Comments about Martin Road Series DRS1 Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I own the D-15, the D-1 Custom, a 1940 Gibson J-35, and a few other Ovation Guitars. This guitar has awesome projection, not a D-15, but similar. The sound is unique and maybe a little stronger sound than the D-1 Custom I have but very close. Besides it being extremely heavy and the strap button/plug in is difficult to keep a strap on playing acoustically. Sound is powerful, Made in Mexico is why you are getting a punchy guitar for less than a grand. Another great thing is it has bone nut and saddle, the plastic pins I switched out for real wood (ebony) and that pretty much makes it as custom as you can get for premium sound. The action is excellent, and I recommend the Martin 92/8 phosphor bronze mediums, they are great strings. I will keep this guitar but the D-15 is definitely superior to any guitar I have ever played.
