The Martin DM acoustic dreadnought guitar is made in the USA and is not an acoustic/electric so it doesn't have any pick ups or knobs. The neck is made out of rosewood, while the top of the body is made out of solid spruce and the sides and back are made of mahogany.

UTILIZATION

The rosewood neck of the Martin DM acoustic guitar feels great on the fingers and is overall an extremely easy guitar to play all around the neck. It is easy to play both rhythm and lead parts, but I mostly play rhythm guitar on the Martin DM. The shape is the classic shape and size that you would think of when you are talking about dreadnought acoustic guitars, while the weight is about average. Getting a good sound from the Martin DM is pretty easy the inherent sound is pretty great.

SOUNDS

The sound of the Martin DM is nothing less than what I would expect from a Martin guitar. It has a full bodied sound that makes it great for all styles of music, but I use it mostly for rock and pop music as that is mostly what I play. It has a pretty good low end presence but the crisp and clean high end response is to me what makes this guitar stand out and be as vibrant as it is.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Martin DM acoustic guitar for about three years and it is probably one of the best acoustic guitars in this price range. It isn't too expensive at all and is actually a great deal for the player looking for long term acoustic guitar that can be used for years to come. Its not only easy to play but has a truly great tone to go along with its smooth fingerboard. This guitar isn't cheap, but it is absolutely worth the asking price as it will last a lifetime if treated right. Overall, a great choice for any acoustic guitar player looking for a great Martin guitar without the enormous price tag.
