The DRC-1STE-SB is a beautiful, great sounding electro-acoustic that punches way above its price bracket. Originally part of Martin Guitars, Sigmas are very similar to their higher end cousins but affordable enough to be a first guitar.
Versatile and Reliable
With Indian Rosewood bottom and sides and a solid spruce top this guitar has really well rounded bass and treble. It's an incredibly versatile instrument so you can easily play any style you want. Grover tuners and a bone nut mean your strings will stay in tune longer which means you spend less time stopping to re-tune and more time playing.
If you're new to playing guitar you want one that's comfortable, well setup and easy to play and Sigmas are a great choice that wont hurt your wallet. While your learning your guitar will take a bit of a bashing, this guitar is tough enough to bear with you while your technique improves.
If you're a more experienced player you'll find the great mid range tone and restrained bass make finger picking sound fantastic but when you need to do some serious strumming you still get a brilliant tone
