Martin DSS-17 Acoustic Guitar – Whiskey Sunset

6-string Acoustic Guitar with Spruce Top, Mahogany Back and Sides, Hardwood Neck, and Rosewood Fingerboard – Whiskey Sunset

Updated Slope Shoulder Dreadnought from Martin

The Martin DSS-17 is a slope shoulder dreadnought that is incredibly comfortable to play and produces a beautifully pure tone from its solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. This is a classic tonewood pairing known for rich, varied tone across the ranges. The DSS-17 also features Sitka spruce scalloped X-bracing for incredible tonal support and durability. In addition, a select hardwood neck with rosewood fingerboard offers wonderful response, playability, and feel.

Tonewood pairing delivers rich tonal complexity

Throughout history, Martin guitars have used spruce tops and mahogany backs and sides to create enchanting tone — you’ll find the same premium tonewood combination on the Martin DSS-17. The mahogany ensures you’ll experience a clear, organic sound when playing this guitar, while the spruce enhances the exquisite sound with warmth and beautiful overtones.

Classic dreadnought body style

The rich tone and loud volume of the DSS-17 come partly from its ever-popular dreadnought body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for pairing with a banjo other instruments in an ensemble. The dreadnought body style also gives you well-balanced tone, making the DSS-17 an excellent choice for recording in the studio.

Smooth low-oval neck profile and Plek’d frets

Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, the slope shoulder design of the Martin DSS-17 gives you hours of comfortable play. It features one of Martin’s amazingly playable modified low-oval neck profiles with high performance taper, which gives you enough girth to hold onto while still allowing you to play faster lines unhindered. The Plek’d frets and smooth rosewood fingerboard with stunning mother-of-pearl 1955 Style 18 inlays ensure a playing experience that few guitars can offer.
