This is the guitar I would always pick up at the music store and try it out because I never thought I would ever have one. Thanks to zzounds I now have my dream guitar, the 000-15m, an all mahogany masterpiece that has a presence only Martin can achieve. The deep and rich lows give your sound that beefy bottom end that an acoustic needs and the sharp and snappy mids/highs round out that signature sound for a balanced but definitely deep sound. The tuners are buttery smooth yet precise and the silky mahogany neck lets your hands glide with ease over the ebony fingerboard. It's lightweight, loud, luxurious and literally one of the best guitars ever made and thanks to zzounds, I was able to make my dream a reality.
This is definitely a deep and low Martin, not a bad thing but be aware of it. Other than it being low, the guitar sounds amazing anywhere.
Most useful feature: tuners. The tuners feel so sturdy and tune so precisely that you can just feel how quality they are.
Least useful: none
Martin has chosen the finest materials and you can tell.
Ease of Use
This instrument literally plays itself.
Top of the line is the only way to describe it, this is the type of guitar that is usually on display wherever it's being sold. It's beautiful, extremely well built and will last decades If treated right
The name Martin doesn't always mean expensive, but it does always mean quality. So when you start looking at the expensive Martins, the quality climbs with the price. Anyone who plays it would agree that it's worth every penny of the price and similar priced guitars fall short of its pedigree.
Martin is hands down one of the best companies I've dealt with for customer service. They know they have a world class product and they back it up with world class support.
The Wow Factor
With the all mahogany body, the guitar is immediately striking, especially with the curves of the 000 body style. After drooling over the looks, you can't help but fall in love with the tone and the sheer playability of the guitar. Any skill level player immediately sounds better on a Martin like this and I think the better you sound to yourself, the better you play
16 years of playing any instrument I can get my hands on.
