Overview

The Martin D-15M acoustic guitar with a burst top. In its 175-year history, Martin has set more guitar design trends than can be counted. The company still embraces design techniques introduced many years ago to create their guitars' timeless tone.

Built on a dreadnought platform, the Martin D-15M guitar boasts 14 open frets for a unique design and great range of tone. The top, back, and sides are genuine solid mahogany, offering strong guitar tone, with crisp, clear subtleties in each note's definition. One of mahogany's finest qualities is its density. Although it's not the hardest tonewood, it is free of air pockets and other deformities.

The vintage sound produced by the Martin D-15M acoustic guitar is reminiscent of the Style 15 Martin guitars made popular during the 1940s. The Martin guitar is equipped with a simplified dovetail neck joint, offering the best wood binding practice ever conceived. Often used for shipbuilding, the process fuses two pieces of wood into a single, sturdy unit that stands up to the elements time and time again. The results are evident with the strength in tone and power in projection that you hear with each strum of this Martin acoustic guitar.

This Martin guitar's solid mahogany neck further complements the crisp, defined acoustic sound of this dreadnought. The bridge and fingerboard are solid East Indian rosewood, adding smooth sustain to the mix. The 14 open frets, 1-11/16" nut width, 2-1/8" bridge string spacing, and 16" radius add comfort for your intricate fingerboard movements.

Other appointments include a single-ring rosette, bone nut, solid/square taper headstock, solid East Indian rosewood headplate, diamonds and square fingerboard inlay, belly-style bridge, nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs, and a solid black ebony bridge and end pins. Dressed in a soft satin finish and featuring a Delmar tortoise color pickguard, the Martin D-15M guitar glows with classic vintage looks and sound.

Includes a Martin 345 hardshell guitar case.

Comments about Martin 15 Series D-15M Burst Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

This is a great guitar very loud, simple and not over done. Looks like it was made from the 40's. Feels great in your hands and people just love the look and sound it puts off. I have had this guitar for all most a year and still love to pick it up and play. Five stars!

Comments about Martin 15 Series D-15M Burst Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

It's still new to me, but quickly becoming a favorite. First - it's a simple, beautiful guitar. Next - it has that Martin dreadnought sound, but a bit warmer than my old (and sadly battered) D-28. Not quite as big, booming, and bassy, but wonderfully at home playing blues, bluegrass, country, folk, and the little rock I usually play. It's a very solid value for the price. So far it's a definite keeper and I couldn't be happier with it. It even feels nice in my hands.
