Martin 00015M StreetMaster Guitar, Distressed Satin

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Part of the 15 series, the new Martin 00015M 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 00015M 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 00015M Streetmaster.

“The Martin Guitar Company has expanded the popular solid mahogany 15 Series with a respectful nod to the working musician. The Martin 00015M 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.
