Up for sale is this left-handed Martin DRS1, it's seen plenty of use and has the beauty marks to show it but it's a great sounding guitar with a fairly dark but very Martinesque tone thanks to the all-mahogany body construction. There is some finish wear at one side of the lower bout and a few scratches on the side, neither of which photographs well. There is some surface wear and light scratches on the top under the pickguard, to the left of the bridge. The second fret will need to be replaced as it has a deep groove at the G string which results in some buzz on that note only. The built-in Fishman Sonitone pickup sounds great. The original plastic bridge pins have been replaced with tamarind wood which looks sharp and gives greater resonance. The case has seen better days, one clasp is incomplete but the other two function fine, and the bottom edge has substantial wear as shown in the pictures.
