Martin Guitars DSS-17


Make beautiful music with the iconic Martin Guitars DSS-17, an instrument renowned for its exceptional sound quality and craftsmanship.



When it comes to acoustic guitars, few brands are as revered and respected as Martin Guitars. Founded in 1833, Martin has a long and prestigious history of crafting some of the finest instruments out there. One of their most recent offerings, the DSS-17, is a testament to their commitment to excellence and innovation.

The DSS-17 is a dreadnought-style acoustic guitar with a slope-shoulder design that gives it a unique look and feel. It features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, and a modified low oval neck shape with a high-performance taper. The fingerboard and bridge are both made of rosewood, giving the guitar a warm, rich tone.

One of the standout features of the DSS-17 is its use of Martin’s new Dreadnought Junior bracing pattern, which is designed to enhance the guitar’s resonance and projection while also reducing the weight of the instrument. The result is a guitar that is easy to play and produces a full, robust sound that belies its smaller size.

The DSS-17 also includes other features that are typical of high-quality Martin guitars, such as a bone nut and saddle, a hand-rubbed finish, and a Fishman Matrix VT Enhance NT1 pickup system with sound-hole controls. This makes the guitar ideal for both studio recording and live performances, as it can easily be plugged into an amplifier or PA system.

Overall, the Martin DSS-17 is an exceptional guitar that delivers exceptional tone and playability. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, it’s definitely worth considering if you’re in the market for a new acoustic guitar. With its superior craftsmanship, innovative design, and rich, vibrant sound, it’s a true masterpiece of acoustic engineering.
