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 double 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 Fishmans Sonitone sound reinforcement system and includes a nylon gig bag.

Had this for a month or so absolutely love, no complaints at all,though a hard case would be nice. Had one couple years ago, did not keep it long, when I got it home didn't sound near as good as in store. This one is much better and the look of the burst is gorgeous. Had a die hard Martin fan play this and he was shocked by the sound this little beauty produces. A keeper for sure!!!

The sound from this guitar belies it's size. I've owned the Taylor equivalent and this guitar has much more even tone in my opinion. Easy to play and solid wood (no laminates). Guitars are a very personal choice but I would highly recommend you try this if you are looking for an excellent "smaller" bodied guitar.

i've had one for a couple of months. I own a couple of Taylor guitars, and love them. I think the GS Mini is a great guitar. But as far as comfort, and ease of playing, the dreadnought jr. is better. And it really has some punch for it's size. A good finger picker as well. At the time i purchased it, they had 2 in stock. I tried both of them, and 1 had a definite better overall sound. so i recommend you do that if they have more then 1 in store. You will find it hard to put down. wish it came with a hardshell case....

Fantastic tone and easy to play! Add the fishman electronics and it's not just a travel guitar. You can play gigs and record with it. This guitar has a great unique mid range tone and still has some low end boom. The 3/4 size gives it a different range than most acoustics. The size of the body is like an electric guitar. Feels good and easy to play for a player used to the size of an electric. BUT They shouldve finished the neck better. It feels porous which may work out the more you play it but still, a bit more sanding and finish coat wouldve been better. Also the allen key it comes with is too short and useless. I had to use my d28 wrench. The fretboard felt a bit concave for my taste. Also for a mexican guitar it should be less money. Maybe 650. However; all that being said...amazing guitar. It is not a toy. It is not a travel guitar. It is a compact dreadnought. Martin shoulf consider selling a feedback buster soundhole plug that fits this bad boy.

I replaced my baby Taylor with this. Richer sound especially in midtones. Which I would expect due to its larger size. I'm hoping I don't have problems with the bridge cracking my top which seems to plague the baby. IF it doesn't I'll go to a 5 on quality but I've only owned it 3 months so the jury is still out. The bracing seems more substantial than Taylors so I'm hopeful.

Have only had this for a week but it's a great instrument with that Martin tone! I love the fact that it is made of solid wood. I think like all Martin products it is over priced, especially given the status of our Canadian dollar. Still I love this so far!

this is a great guitar. The only thing I would change is to get a hard case for it. It comes with a soft gig bag and you would want the hard case. I reviewed this earlier, but forgot to put the 5 star review. I would have given it 5 out of 5, but the gig bag needs improvement.

I forgot to give the Dreadnought 5 stars. The only problem is that the travel bag is not the best. I was wondering if Long and Mcquade will be bringing in the Martin Hardshell case for it.

This is a great little guitar. I own a Taylor GS Mini Koa and the sound that comes from the Martin is a warmer tone. The GS mini is layered The fret board is better spaced and feels great playing. The guitar is really new and I know that it will only get better with age.
