Martin Dreadnought Junior
 Martin Dreadnought Junior
Introduced a year ago at the 2015 Winter NAMM show, Martin's Dreadnought Junior coincides with and celebrates Martin's 100th year anniversary of their Dreadnought guitar first produced way back in 1916.

More than an entry-level Martin instrument, the Junior is made of solid, book matched sapele for the back and sides and has a Sitka spruce top plate. It is built in the standard Dreadnought shape but scaled down to 15/16th the size of a full size 14-fret Martin Dreadnought.

Perfect for students or traveling, the 14-fret Martin Dreadnought Junior features X-bracing, a 24-inch scale, and a synthetic material called Richlite that has the same feel and texture as ebony. It is used for the fret board and bridge. (ebony is an endangered wood species). For live stage work, also standard is the included Fishman Sonitone pickup system.

The Martin Dreadnought Junior sells for $799 MSRP and comes with a nylon gig bag and is available in a left-handed model as well.
