Martin 000 15M Mahogany Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Built with a body and neck of Mahogany paired with Indian Rosewood for the fingerboard, bridge and head plate, the Martin 000 15M is a punchy, responsive guitar. 

The Martin ’15’ series indicates that the trim level is fairly low, in particular there is no body or fingerboard binding, and the finish is satin.   

Mahogany has long been used as an alternative wood for guitar and ukulele tops, and Martin has used it for nearly a century.  While not as detailed as high-grade Sitka Spruce, it delivers a warm, rich tone with darker flavours.    Used for the rest of the body as on the Martin 000 15M, it provides a significant amount of power and projection.  It’s worth noting that the Martin D-18, which uses Mahogany for the sides and back, is very popular in Bluegrass genre where the guitar has to compete with loud, cutting instruments like banjos and mandolins.  

The Martin 000 15M is an excellent, reasonably priced instrument with a great tone.   

Here is what the builder says about the Martin 000 15 M: 

“The C F Martin 000 15M model continues the Martin tradition with a 000-14 fret body size, solid all-mahogany construction and a rich satin finish.

Satisfy your desire with an affordable solid wood guitar that is visually distinctive and innovative.”
