CATEGORY: Product News

The Martin 000JR-10 | Small Guitar, Big Sound

(Click here to see the Martin 000JR-10 on our website)

Who doesn't want big tone from a small-bodied guitar? Paging a Mr. Ed Sheeran... Made specifically for players looking for a smaller guitar for traveling, sitting in your living room, or a gig-worthy instrument that is easy to carry around, the Martin 000JR acoustic guitar is a great choice.

Everything about the 000JR-10 screams Martin. The Sapele back and sides paired with a Sitka spruce top produce a strong mid-range with more low end than you would expect from a junior sized guitar. 

The hand-rubbed high-performance taper neck is super easy to play and Martin has strung these up with their Retro strings for added warmth. 

Why Get a Junior Acoustic?


The Junior sized acoustics sits right in between a baby and a full size. For maximum travel-ability, a baby is a bit smaller, and for maximum tone, a full-sized guitar is hard to compete with, but if you want a sweet spot, a guitar that is easy to take with you that does not sound thin, then a Junior guitar is the ideal choice. This Junior size of guitar has also found a following with live performers as they are easy to play and can sound great through a P.A. system. From big stadiums to local coffee houses, Junior guitars are becoming a mainstay in the live performance world. 

In addition to the features, sound and portability, many musicians like the price of these Junior guitars. As of the posting of this article, the Martin 000JR-10 has a street price of only $499 (see the product listing here). For that price, most people aren't worried about a few dings here and there, which is exactly what happens when you are playing gigs or even in your living room. 

The Bottom Line


For under $500 the Martin 000JR is a seriously cool guitar that not only sounds great but plays like butter and comes with a gig bag! Whether you are a gigging musician or a front porch rocker, this Junior will be a welcome addition to your guitar collection.
