In making the 000RS1 Audiortium Acoustic-Electric, Martin guitar set out to build a solid-bodied instrument with all the sound and projection of their more expensive guitars. The 000RS1 was also designed for the working and touring guitarists looking for an instrument with a balanced tone and projection.
The top, back and sides are crafted of solid sapele and braced for resonance and projection. This guitar has a comfortable, low oval neck. The belly bridge and fingerboard is made of forest-friendly Richlite, a material that has a similar look and feel to ebony.
This 000RS1 comes equipped with the Fishman Sonitone sound reinforcement system, featuring rotary controls for volume and tone. The Sonitone is a great-sounding, easy-to-use system that is perfect for stage and studio application. A hardshell case is included to make this an absolutely amazing value.
