$2109 (CAD)
In stock in Waterloo.
An exciting new model from Martin, introduced in early 2019, the DSS-17 is a lightly built slope shouldered mahogany and spruce Dreadnought, that features scalloped braces, a small 30’s style bridge and matching maple bridge plate, gorgeous sunburst finish, and a super-comfortable low oval neck with performing artist taper for fast and easy playing.

The DSS-17 is a wonderful sounding guitar, with a tone that blends classic early 1940’s Slope-shouldered Dreadnought tone with a modern D-18. It is warm, dark, powerful, and incredibly well balanced, with bold trebles, a full midrange, and well articulated bass. Great for flat-picking, strumming and fingerstyle, the DSS-17 is a guitar that truly does it all well.

With 25.4” scale, 1-3/4” nut, and 2-5/32 spacing at the bridge. Whiskey Sunset top finish, vintage cream top binding, unbound back, simple 5-ring rosette, tortoise celluloid pickguard. Bone nut and saddle, Golden Age open-geared Kluson style tuners, vintage style headstock logo. Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

With formed gigbag.
