Overview

The Martin 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar with Case improves on a previous model known as the 000-15S. The 000-15SM shares the same all-mahogany body with slotted headstock as its predecessor but now comes with a morado fingerboard and bridge, real rosette, improved fretboard inlays, and nickel tuners with butterbean nobs. This small-bodied guitar harkens back to an earlier time before the invasion of the dreadnought. It features a 12-fret body design that offers up plenty of woody tone and volume, in spite of its compact size. This is a great guitar for fingerpickers or anyone looking to acquire an instant classic. Includes case.

Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

This is an amazing guitar. Mellow, great bass tone and very light. This is my favorite guitar. If I did it over again I would consider getting the electric version of this guitar. This guitar is a little quiet and I wish I could play it for gigs but I can not because it cannot hook up to my amp.

    Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

    I am learning (always learning) finger style, and my teacher let me play his 000-15sm. I didn't want to give it back. Play it soft, or bang away, the thing holds it's tone throughout. Gorgeous, rich tone and sustain.

    Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

    I purchased this beautiful guitar as an "Open Box" and was concerned of what might be wrong with it. I played one locally and fell in love with the look and the sound and playability. When I received it in the mail I was blown away at the stripped look of the mahogany and the throaty smoky sound it had. Nothing was wrong with it! The only thing I had to do with it was purchase a pickup and have it installed. I play every Sunday leading worship and also play in my chick band "One Heart." Love love love this guitar! Felt I got a killer of a deal with $500 off because of it being an "Open Box" item.

        This guitar was well set up right out of the box. Very happy with the sound and the size. I cannot play a dreadnought, too big. This guitar fits the bill for a rich tone, some loudness, and great comfortable size.

          Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

          If you are not sure what warm means in regard to acoustic guitar tone, try this guitar. It will give you a taste of what Christmas day feels like as a child transformed into a the form of plush open chords and resonating harmonics. I also have owned the Martin OM28V. (side by side)The V was much more percussive and resonant but the 00015SM was way more pleasing to the ears and senses. The V sounds pluckey and harsh in comparison, but the addition of the Rosewood and sitka and traditional dovetail joint gave it the musical advatage as far as averal robust complex tone. Still, I prefered the 15 because of the simply better overall sensory experience. Hard to pindown exactly, but listen to all the other reviews here. It's not just in experienced ears. The 000-15SM is a magical instrument.

          Great Small Body

          Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

          I first saw the martin 15 series at guitar center months ago. But the guitar centers in Ct. only stock the d15 and 00015m not the sm. So I ordered the Sm and waited only about a week and it was quite worth the wait! It has a very warm tone and because of the 12 fret neck joint it gives the guitar a little bit more bass. The neck plays flawless and the grain looks amazing. Overall its a great guitar for finger style, folk or blues. but it might fall short with loud strumming that a dreadnought would be better for. best guitar I've ever had!

            Comments about Martin 15 Series 000-15SM Acoustic Guitar:

            I just stared playing publicly over the last couple of years. If you follow me you'll see I have bought lots and lots of guitars. Usually pretty high end Martins and Taylor's. Of all the guitars I have bought this is the one that has stayed with my. It stays by the door so when I leave I can grab it. This is the one that gets the most comments. This is the one that when played by friends they start making offers.
            I put an L.R Baggs pick up in it and so it sounds awesome. It stays in tune better than any other insterment I have owned. I love this concept and design.
            I had bought it as a second guitar but it really has worked its way to the top over instruments twice its price.

                  Right out of the box I knew that this was what would fit the acoustic blues and ragtime genre. The overtones and undertones sing like distant bells, just apparent enough to add spice to the overall voice of the guitar without overwhelming the phrasing. The looks may be understated but... as the old adage goes, "Why gild a lily?". All in all it is more than I had hoped for or expected. I highly recommend this guitar for those that play music that requires a distinction of voices throughout the range. It is a fingerpickers dream.

                      Have had this guitar for a few days.

                      First impressions:

                      It is very well set up out of the box. Intonation and action require no adjustment (stock strings, standard tuning).

                      Very, very good sustain and harmonics.

                      It is a very basic-looking instrument, but upon closer inspection you realize why it's a Martin and why it's not cheap. Minor details: bone bridge and nut; tuning stability; real materials (even the strap peg is ebony).

                      The guitar has good volume, but is much quieter than a dreadnought. If you play by yourself, this is fine. If you play with a group, you may need to consider a pickup.

                      The neck has a similar feel to a Traditional Les Paul (1950's-style C).

                      Smells wonderful.

                      Nice case.

                      I've always played electrics and am lucky enough to have four very nice American-made instruments. I feel embarassed to admit that this is my first acoustic guitar. It is so simple, it makes me see my electrics differently and I suspect this will help me become a better player. The bonus of an American-made instrument is that it supports American workers, and will hold its value (if not appreciate with time). It's a good investment. I am confident this little Martin will get better with age.
