The Martin Dreadnought Junior is a great value acoustic guitar. It's got the quality of tone you'd expect from a Martin.
Built slightly smaller than a dreadnought, the Martin Dreadnought Junior guitar boasts 14 open frets for a unique design and great range of tone. The top is Solid Sitka Spruce while the back and sides are genuine Solid Sapele, offering strong guitar tone, with crisp, clear subtleties in each note's definition.
The Martin guitar is equipped with a mortise and tennon neck joint, offering the best wood binding practice ever conceived (also used for shipbuilding) the process fuses 2 pieces of wood into a single, sturdy unit that stands up to the elements time and time again. The results are evident with the strength in tone and power in projection that you hear with each strum.
Richlite is slowly becoming a common material for fretboards. A recycled resin compound it gives a tone that's nearly identical to Ebony, its fast, smooth but unlike wood doesn't require any treatment or conditioning.
The 14 open frets 2-1/8" bridge string spacing, and 16" radius add comfort for your intricate fingerboard movements. Great for chords or finger style picking seated or standing.
Here's what Martin have to say about the Dreadnought Junior
Fashioned for player comfort, clear powerful tone and easy action, the Dreadnought Junior is reduced to approximately 15/16" of the full Martin 14-fret Dreadnought dimension (14 1/4" width at the lower bout) with an expressive 24" scale length. A solid Sitka spruce top features scalloped 1/4" high performance X-bracing with a single asymmetrical tone bar. The back and sides are bookmatched from sapele, and Richlite, an ebony alternative with similar hardness and appearance, is chosen for the fingerboard and bridge. The Dreadnought Junior (aka "D Jr") comes factory-equipped with Fishman's Sonitone sound reinforcement system and includes a nylon gig bag.
