An excellent all-round performer, offering unbeatable dreadnought value for money at this price point.
The body is constructed from solid sapele - thus most would describe it as an all-solid guitar - but the DRS1's neck is constructed from a multi-laminate named Stratabond. This design feature is striking, as the sweeping lines of the shaped laminate catch the eye.
As impressive as the DRS1 is visually, nothing prepares you for the boisterous, lively tone. With its snappy, tight bass the DRS1 pitches chords with depth and soul while a bright, clear top end adds sweetness to the timbre.
"In terms of sheer value for money, not least with that iconic name on the headstock, the DRS1 is going to take some beating."45 Stars
