Martin 000-15M StreetMaster Guitar, Distressed Satin

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Part of the 15 series, the new Martin 000-15M Streetmaster is a Mahogany body 000 model with a ‘distressed’ satin finish, no binding, and Katalox, sometimes called ‘Mexican Royal Ebony’ for the fingerboard and bridge.

Based closely on the standard series 000 Mahogany models, the new Martin 000-15M Streetmaster uses Mahogany for the top, back, sides, body blocks, and neck. The top and back are braced with Sitka Spruce. The fingerboard and bridge are Katalox, a Central American hardwood properly named ‘Swartzia cubensis’, and is often used as a substitute for African Gabon Ebony. Like Ebony, Katalox heartwood is much darker than other sections. It is not a CITES listed material, and is not listed as threatened or endangered.

This guitar sounds just like a Mahogany body 000 model, with plenty of top end sparkle that’s not overpowered by the bottom or middle frequency ranges. It is very comfortable to play and a really good sounding model for finger style or strumming.   The distressed finish looks great,  and coupled with the vintage style tuners give a retro look.   The finish is quite thin, so it imposes minimal restrictions on the vibration of the wood.

A Martin semi-rigid and heavily padded gig bag is supplied with the Martin 000-15M Streetmaster.

“The Martin Guitar Company has expanded the popular solid mahogany 15 Series with a respectful nod to the working musician. The Martin 000-15M StreetMaster ® model is built to the same specifications as the 000-15M model but Martin has added a beautifully distressed satin finish.

The StreetMaster® is perfect for your next gig, whether it be at the historic Ryman Theater or a day of busking in the big city. Enjoy the look and feel of a well-worn instrument with the limited lifetime warranty and the superb playability of a brand new guitar.
