Such A Sweet Martin!

By Zak

from Post Falls, ID

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar sounds so good! It is completely different from your standard spruce top dreadnought, but it is amazing to listen to. It's dark without being muddy, and not as boomy as a dreadnought. It's got Martin quality written all over it. I love the simplicity of the design. There is very little on this guitar that is meant to be flashy, just a beautiful wood (mahogany) and a beautiful sound.

Martin Tone and Quality at a Great Price!

By 1995*Strat

from Cleveland,OH

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar features an auditorium body style, which is smaller than the typical dreadnaught acoustic guitar. The top wood is solid mahogany as are the sides and the single piece back that has no inlay. This guitar does not have any binding on the body or fingerboard. The body finish is satin and after awhile will shine from body oils. The sounds this guitar produces are incredible. With the use of mahogany wood for the top, this instrument provides a very warm sound with plenty of sustain. The low notes produced are excellent especially on the low E string. The high notes are clean and ring. The overall tone can range from warm to rich to full and bright. This guitar is an excellent choice for fingerstyle players though strummed chords sound very warm with great sustain. This guitar is an incredible value and I would highly recommend the Martin 000-15 to anyone.

By MusicLover322

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I am an intermediate student and wanted a guitar to grow into. What a choice I made!! The 000-15 is warm and rich, without the brassy brightness of some of the larger Martins. This guitar is incredibly playable and the slightly smaller body size is so comfortable. This is one guitar I will not only grow with, but will never let go!

Breath of Heaven

By berto43560

from CA

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

This is definitely an amazing guitar! I've had it for several years and although I've had a problem breaking strings, I've since had the nut replaced and have had no problems since. It's amazing how much sound comes out of this little guitar. It has a small neck, which makes for easy maneuvering, and I simply love it! It's definitely not a guitar to beat on because you can only get so much sound from a small bodied guitar, but for slower songs especially it is wonderful!

Nifty Guitar

By benbul

from Stoneham, MA

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

The wood is more likely Sapele than Mahogany. Sapele is a West African heart wood similar to mahogany but harder and with a marvelous cedar like smell. The resonance of this little guitar is incredible - very Martin. I have a 1960's Gibson which is so very different. I love them equally.

GREAT sounding guitar

By John

from Monrovia, CA

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

GREAT sounding guitar! I found this guitar on the web, and had my local Guitar Center order it for me. What attracted me was that it is is the lowest-priced 000 sized Martin that is all solid wood (no laminates), and I thought I'd give it a try. However, I was a little nervous about the soundboard being made of sapele ("African mahogany") rather than Spruce. While it was on order I couldn't stay away from the Guitar Center, and in the meantime I fell in love with the GC-MMV Dreadnought they had hanging there. I didn't really want a D-size but the MMV sure sounded nice. I figured if I didn't like the 000-15, I'd return it and get the MMV. Well, the 000-15 came in and I took it home a few days ago, and I love the sound of it. I can feel the low notes vibrating my belly, and the high notes ring clear. I had a nagging worry though, that the high notes weren't quite as responsive as those of the MMV, so today I took it in and compared it to the MMV and also to a D-16GT. Guess what? The 000-15 actually sounded better and more balanced, over the whole range, than either of the other 2 guitars! The sapele wood of the -15 is interesting. As a woodworker, I don't really consider this mohogany, as it doesn't LOOK like mohogany to me. Don't get me wrong, it looks FINE, but it doesn't have the visual "depth" that Cuban or Honduran mohogany has. The sapele has a nice aroma - I rather like the fact that the guitar smells faintly like my woodshop. Personally, it wouldn't have been my choice to use the same wood species for the neck, sides, back, AND the soundboard. Quite frankly, I think instruments look nicer when there's some contrast - light soundboard, reddish sides and back, ebony fretboard, etc. But, aside from everything being pretty much the same reddish brown shade, the guitar looks fine. In the end of course, what matters most is how it sounds, and as far as I'm concerned, this little guitar can hold its own!

Awesome Value

By Wild Bill

from Seattle WA

Comments about Martin 000-15 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

It is simple looking guitar, but the sound is rich and complex -- and much, much brighter than I expected from the mahagony top. In fact, it's almost brassy, but still with a full range. The action was also as good out of the box as any guitar I've ever played. I prefer the 000 size and tone over my current name-brand dreadnought which, come to think of it, will soon be offered on Craig's List.
