THE JUNIOR SERIES | Small without sacrifice, these are slightly smaller 000 or Dreadnought bodies that refuse to make sacrifices in tone or volume. Junior Series models are built for comfort and playability, making them ideal for your first guitar. But they’re also big on traditional Martin features like solid wood construction and ¼-inch scalloped X-bracing. They deliver all the tone you’d expect from a larger Martin guitar while ensuring you’ll never outgrow them. With a high-performance tapered neck, pleked frets, and a contoured back edge, Junior Series guitars are so comfortable that you’ll have a tough time putting them down. These smaller body guitars let you make great music, not compromises.

Like many acoustic guitar manufacturers these days, Martin produces a whole range of smaller-bodied instruments to suit the needs of their customer base, ranging from their travel-friendly ‘Backpacker’ series to their diminutive ‘Little Martin’ guitars. The Junior series is designed to sit in between these mini guitars and a full-sized Martin, thanks to its smaller Dreadnought body proportions, ‘000’ body width and 24” scale length. The DJR-10E is perfectly suited to those players looking for a big Dreadnought sound in a smaller package and, unlike some of Martin’s smaller guitars, this one features all solid woods for a more authentic Martin experience.”

Smaller Body

Perfectly proportioned but slightly smaller than the standard Dreadnought or 000 models.

Big Sounds

With solid-wood construction, ¼ inch scalloped bracing, and all of Martin’s know-how, the Jr models might be smaller, but they still pack a big punch.


The smaller-sized body and gently rounded comfort edge make these guitars so comfortable you’ll find them hard to put down.


Pleked for precision and expertly set up, Junior Series guitars are ready to play right out of the box.
