DM-1ST

A wonderful guitar at a brilliant price. 

Well, this nice sunburst example of the Sigma DM-1ST is not a standard Sigma model as it is a custom Just Music model made by Sigma Guitars in sunburst finish. You can get this guitar in natural finish everywhere but if you like the sunburst one just order it from the folks at Just Music. We really like the Sigma DM-1ST and consider it as one of the best beginners or backup guitars out there. It looks good, it feels good, it sounds good. The guitar we received had a nice looking Mahogany body and extra comfortable neck. the sunburst finish was well done with the Sitka Spruce top half visible through it. Most low budget acoustic guitars suffer from poor fret and intonation job, that was absolutely not the case with the Sigma DM-1ST-SB, no stingy points or dead notes could be found. For those of you who require amplification, be sure to check the DM-1STE or DM-1STE-SB.
