My overall opinion about this guitar cant be better.
Model Year: 2003
Where Obtained: DIAPASO-Instrumentos Musicais
Features:
Martin DX-1R(R=rosewood)was made in US.This is a dreadnought model featuring a solid spruce top on a wood composite laminate rosewood body.Martin tuners!
Playability:
No complains about action,it doesnt affect my playing and I cant find any flaws
Sound Quality:
This guitar is well-suited for Bluegrass flatpicking styles.This guitar has an extraordinary full and warm sound.In the past Ive tried many MARTINS (D-45,D-41,D-28,D-18,several OMs,Eric Clapton,etc)and I never had the same feeling concerning power and balance.Bass strings are really fantastic!

Worth every penny. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the sound of a Martin but can't afford to pay over $1000.00. Can't go wrong with the natural look either.
Model Year: 2003
Price: $800.00 800.00 CDN (new)
Where Obtained: Musicstop in Halifax
Features:
Solid Spruce top, Rosewood back and sides, love the smooth hand rubbed finish, definately gives it a natural feel. Smells just like the workshop they made it in, amazing, simply. Really a great buy for the price, couldn't find anything that beat it, even some more expensive ones. Love it.
Playability:
Smooth and fast playing. Neck is smooth and easy to handle.
Sound Quality:
Deep bass is great, lovely loud tone. Sounds great with new Elixirs. Great for both fingerpicking and strumming. Comparable sound to more expensive Martins. No distortion when strummed hard.
