Solid slope-shoulder dreadnought with tasty appointments and attractive finish.
The DSS-17 Black Smoke slope-shoulder is striking, yet understated, with its satin black smoke finish offset with mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlay, antique white binding, and ivoroid pickguard. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge pop against the rich black satin finish. It is crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides for a warm, comforting tone. The Dreadnought size adds depth and volume,while the slope-shoulder and modified low oval neck with high-performance taper make this guitar easy and comfortable to play.
Martin 17 Series
The instruments in Martin’s 17 Series pair mahogany back and sides with a Sitka spruce top for a well-balanced sound full of bright airy trebles, crisp midrange and complex harmonics. Most unique to the 17 Series are the darker wood tones with contrasting appointments and shade patterns that give each of the instruments in this series a distinctive look that is sure to turn heads. The bold and edgy 17 Series guitars are available in a variety of body sizes, and all of them feature Martin’s comfortable high-performance neck that is super easy to play. The 17 Series takes inspiration from guitars that would have been played in juke joints back in the ’30s and ’40s. Some models come with built-in electronics, and some even offer a traditional slope-shoulder profile like this DSS-17 Black Smoke dreadnought acoustic guitar.
