(SOLD) Martin Dreadnought Junior DJr-10E Streetmaster 2022
Martin Dreadnought Junior, shaded 'streemaster' finish, made in Mexico 2022. A few years back when Martin first launched the Dread Jr, I was working in a Martin dealer, and the rep for the brand told me something along the lines of this: "this is going to be huge... it will be our biggest selling model within a year". Whether old mate was right is a question I never answered, but heck: this certainly does rule, and there's a reason they're popular. A lot of small size or travel acoustics sound like garbage, but this is remarkably good. It's rich and dark with a woody low end, gooey mids and a zesty snap on the top end. Being small, it's comfy to sit on a couch with, and the 24" scale slim neck is super agreeable... it basically plays itself. Martin have a way of delivering pretty remarkable guitars even down to their most affordable models, and this is very enjoyable indeed. The relic-ish finish is a laugh too, it looks pretty juicy. As always: one only, don't dither.
