Martin D Jr-10E Acoustic-Electric Bass Guitar – Satin

4-string Short-scale Acoustic-electric Bass with Spruce Top, Sapele Back and Sides, Select Hardwood Neck, and Richlite Fingerboard – Satin

Comfortable, Stellar-sounding Short-scale A/E Bass

Martin has taken the DNA of its compact D Jr-10E model and devised a super-sharp instrument for bassists: the D Jr-10E Acoustic-electric Bass! Taking after its 6-string sibling, the D Jr-10E Acoustic-electric Bass features a compact body with a spruce top with sapele back and sides, perfectly matched for bolstering woody bass tones wherever you find yourself playing — from van jams to bandstands. Its shorter scale length means you can extract the same great bass tones with a much smaller footprint, which is excellent news for smaller-framed players and those looking for more comfort from their acoustic bass. The Dreadnought Junior high-performance-taper neck also feels great in hand, matching the universal comfort of the rest of the bass. Backed by a Fishman Sonitone BT-1 preamp, this acoustic-electric bass is ready to plug in and play whenever the moment calls. Bassists are rejoicing — finally, a short-scale bass from Martin!

Spruce-topped shorty

Widely regarded as a tremendously balanced, tight-grained tonewood with clarity across all frequency ranges and dynamics, spruce is the perfect choice for an acoustic bass. And when paired with darker sapele back and sides, the warmth and richness of this acoustic bass really begin to emerge. Throw Martin’s acclaimed X-bracing into the mix, and you have a perfectly projecting sonic recipe. You might not initially think that tonewood-seeking and bass guitars cross paths too often, but in the case of the Martin D Jr-10E Acoustic-electric Bass, this is a prime example of why the right woods count!

Scaled and shaped for success

There are many benefits to playing a short-scale instrument, the first being that they are generally more comfortable to hold and sit with. This bass is also a space-conscious choice, making it an excellent fit for dorm rooms, studio apartments, small clubs, acoustic jams, and traveling. Equipped with a high-performance-taper Dreadnought Junior neck, the D Jr-10E Acoustic-electric Bass allows for swift and easy riffing up and down the fretboard, delivering a complementary degree of comfort to the body shape and scale length. Plus, the specially designed Martin Short-scale Bass Strings will blow you away with their playability!

Backed by the Sonitone BT-1

Though we’re confident you’ll dig the unplugged acoustic tones of the D Jr-10E Acoustic-electric bass, this beauty sounds just as regal when DI’d or paired with your acoustic amp of choice. And a large piece of that equation is the Fishman Sonitone BT-1 preamp system! Whether tracking in your home studio, plugging in for a club-stage gig, or delivering beefy bass tones in larger spaces, this preamp system is more than happy to accommodate in stunningly realistic quality — it wouldn’t be a Martin if it couldn’t!
