Default New Martin DRS1

I was looking at threads about the Martin DRS1 and I noticed they have changed them. They no longer have the stratabond necks, but actually have solid mahogany necks.

I was wondering if anyone has tried the new models and what their opinions may be of said new model.

I had a chance to try one last night and was a bit smitten with it. Brand new out of the box, I was told it is a 2016 model. It wasn't very loud, kinda polite. Very warm and good mids and highs. I imagine it sounding better with time.
The tone knob on the Fishman didn't seem to do a whole lot, but over all didn't sound too bad. I can see that being replaced eventually.
The guitar seems like it would make a great gigging workhorse without spending a ton of money.

Any thoughts?

*EDIT* I had it as "DSR1", not DRS1- HI hope I did not cause any confusion.
