This Martin 00-15M is a beautiful looking and sounding acoustic guitar. Crafted with a solid mahogany top, solid mahogany back and sides, modified low-oval mahogany neck and inlaid single-ring rosette.
The mahogany body is lightweight compared with many other tonewood Acoustics and yields a strong, loud tone with clear, bright, airy trebles. This guitar packs quite a punch for its fairly small body size and yet also has that beautiful mellow tone that Martin is famous for. Quantities of this custom Martin acoustic guitar are limited so get yours ordered while you can.
Nothing beats the natural warmth and sustain of mahogany
There's a good reason why singer-songwriters and many guitarists who sing swear by all-mahogany acoustic guitars such as the Martin 000-15SM. The naturally dark and mellow tone of mahogany is both extremely forgiving and it also provides a rich tonal complexity that's somewhat reminiscent of an electric sound. At the same time, the slightly deeper voice of the 000-15SM leaves plenty of sonic space for your voice, acting as an excellent source of accompaniment.
Here's what Martin say about the 0015M:
The 00-15M model continues the Martin tradition with a 00-14 fret body size, solid mahogany construction and a rich satin finish. Satisfy your desire with an affordable solid wood guitar that is visually distinctive and innovative. Guitar of choice for Martin Ambassadors Augustines, Samantha Crain, and Surfer Blood.
