Overview

This Martin Custom D Classic Acoustic Guitar is the real deal and a real steal. Crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides, the mahogany Custom D guitar also has a tortoise binding, modified low-oval mahogany neck with a mortise-and-tenon joint and adjustable truss rod. Solid Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, and inlaid single-ring rosette complete this Martin guitar. The mahogany body on the Custom D guitar is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple and yields a surprisingly strong, loud sound with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy trebles. Quantities of this custom Martin acoustic guitar are limited.


Includes hardshell cade.

My son Jesse bought the Martin D-15 Custom for me. It is made of solid mahogany sides and back and a solid spruce top. To look at it it is handsomely plain but when you pick it up and play it there is nothing plain about it. The playability and tone are the best I have ever had the pleasure to experience in a guitar. It resonates pure distint tones from base to tenor that blend together with a beautiful fullness. I use to play an Alverez Yari classical guitar and now I only play my Martin. I paired it up with the Marquis Chestnut guitar strap. I find it hard to put it away in my Martin guitar case. I wish I could play it all day long. My Martin D-15 trio is by far the most wonderful gift I have ever had the honor of receiving. Thank you Jesse and the Martin Guitar Company.

      Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      I was very dissapointed with the sound quality when I took it out of the box. It felt really good to me so I spent extra time playing it and comparing to my other guitar, but even after a month I was thinking about returning it. As the 45 day trail period was coming to an end I was still a little leery but decided to keep it. Now, after 2 1/2 months, it sounds great and the playability is excellent.I am very glad I bought it. I have been playing as a hobby for more than 50 years and enjoy playing the Martin Custom D so much I am playing more often and I'm improving more than I have in a many years. I guess the moral of the story is take the full 45 day trail period if you are undecided at the beginning.

            Can't go wrong with Martin tone, made in Nazareth, for eight hundred dollar range during a summer holiday sale.

              Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

              This is a wonderful, back-to-basics guitar. Martin has awakened to the reality of today's international guitar market and responded well. This guitar is only a few days old and yet sounds and sustains beautifully. I look forward to it's sound when it "opens up" in a few years! Its gonna be a MONSTER!

              Great guitar, great value

                      Comments about Martin Custom D Classic Mahogany Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

                      I have a deeper knowledge of electric guitars, but I love this baby. The action is fluid and precise, the mahogany/spruce combination produces a nice mixture of warmth and brightness. And it's loud, with a full-bodied sound. (Oh, and by the way, it comes with a nice Martin case). I haven't spent a lot of time around high-end Martins and such, so perhaps I'm not as sophisticated (or snooty!) as others. But for under a grand, Martin has offered players like me something I never thought I'd possess--a dreadnought guitar that plays and sounds like a Martin; one that will impress anyone who appreciates a quality instrument (I promise you). If this is your price range and you're on the cusp, take the plunge. Like another reviewer, I bought my direct from the factory--just trusted in the Martin name and the other reviews. They did not disappoint. Right out of the box it blew me away. Just knocked me out. I had just purchased a Fender American Standard Limited Edition Stratocaster with a solid rosewood neck a few days earlier. I was totally digging that guitar (and it's a beauty) when the Martin arrived. Now it's sitting in a corner collecting dust because I can't put this baby down. She's my gal and I'm in love.
