This floor model Martin guitar has been marked down from its original price of $1559. It is still in mint, like-new condition.

Martin's DSS-17 Whiskey Sunset offers a slope-shoulder dreadnought body that's about 1/2" wider at the lower bout than their standard dreadnought shape.

Despite being one of Martin's larger-bodied instruments, this guitar weighs in at a feathery 3.7 lbs. It's tonally very open, dry, and woody. Great projection and clarity.

The satin finish, antiqued open gear tuners, and "Whiskey Sunset" sunburst give the DSS-17 a slick vintage vibe. This is definitely one of Martin's more unique (and affordable) US-made guitars.

Martin's Description

The DSS-17 Whiskey Sunset Dreadnought slope-shoulder model boasts a rich, warm sunburst finish that will delight any player with its aesthetic beauty.

It features a modified low oval neck with a high-performance taper for added comfort and includes a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, scalloped bracing, and an old-style script logo on the headstock.
