MARTIN GUITAR
D JR. 2 SAPELE

Image placeholder title

Goodies The D Jr. 2’s small body size makes it easier to play, yet it still projects booming bass, thanks to its dreadnought shape. It uses sapele as the foundation for the top, back, and sides, and sports a Richlite fingerboard and bridge, and a hand-rubbed body and neck finish. Available with Fishman Sonitone electronics for an additional $100.
Price $529 street
