Martin D15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar

With the simply decorated Martin D15, Martin has reintroduced the Mahogany-top acoustic that was so popular in the 1940's (currently their most affordable guitar). The D15's solid, genuine Mahogany construction produces exceptional tone.

About the 15 Series
Martin's 15 Series allows you to satisfy your desire for a more easily affordable all solid wood Martin guitar - and they offer these guitars to you in all shapes and sizes.

These instruments feature richly stained solid Mahogany top, back, and sides to give it the distinctive look along with the recognizable Martin sound - features that mark it one of Martin's most attractive values.

Standard features for the 15 Series generally include solid Mahogany top, back and sides, herringbone decal rosette, satin finish, patented neck mortise, and "A-frame" X-bracing which enhances the rich, bright sound inherent in mahogany.

"Martin D-15- A Sweet Chocolate Dreadnought- With an Even Sweeter Sound!"
I going to wear it out or it's going to wear me out- and when I'm done with it- it will be in the hands of my son.

Sound
One word- beautiful - Warm, bassy on the low end, balanced and clear on the highs. Sounds as good- if not warmer than D- 28's and 35's that I've played- and without the overdone brightness or shrill that some of the Taylors seem to usually posess. This is an incredible sounding guitar- Sound that you you'd expect from a git much more expensive. When you get it- put some A'Addario EXP's Medium Phosphor Bronze Strings on it- wow.

Features
A simple understated guitar- beautiful like a simple acoustic guitar florish... The choice of an all Mahogany body - gives it that unique warm sound- it also gives it that unmistakable cholocate color - who can resist a fudge brownie? Look... if you want a spruce top- your gits going to look like everyone elses. This one will stop people in their tracks - beleive me. Its unique and in its simplicity ...beautiful.

Quality
Fit and finish is top notch. As many of the reviewers have already indicated- the sides are a tad thin- there is no binding- which adds to the beauty of this guitar. Take care of it.

Value
There isn't another guitar out there at this price - that can touch the D-15 in value and in sound.

Manufacturer Support
Haven't had to deal with martin- but read more I heard only good things regarding there customer support- Make sure to registrar it.

The Wow Factor
It's dark- its sounds are warm and addictive- this guitar has it all.
