2005 Martin DM Dreadnought ''Road Series'' Acoustic Steel-String Guitar
I bought this US-made Martin DM dreadnought
from a friend a couple years ago, when I was looking for a fairly
inexpensive, yet great-sounding acoustic guitar. Frankly, and despite
the logo on the headstock, I was not expecting a guitar in this price
range to ''sound like a Martin''. All guitars are different, of course,
and to my surprise, it did have a good bit of that quality that I used
to associate with a D-18, and played nicely too. I've been playing for 30 years and repair guitars and amps on the side, and my previous acoustic was an incredible Lowden O25 that I sold because that guitar's neck with a bit too wide and ''classical'' for me after I started having wrist problems. So
I'm naturally very picky about setups and the way a guitar plays and
sounds, and have been pleased with this one. I'm primarily a
fingerstyle player rather than a ''strummer'', but this guitar works fine
for both. The
neck shape is a very moderate ''C'' profile that seems to be comfortable
for most players, and its tone is very ''sweet'' with a good deal of
depth, no doubt thanks to its solid spruce top.
My reason for selling is actually to continue along the Martin path and upgrade to a (much) more expensive 00-18V. I'd love to keep the DM as a backup, but can't afford to have too many guitars.
A few specifics on this particular guitar:
Strung with a new set of D'Addario Phosphor Bronze Lights (.012-.053).
