Overview

The Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar has mahogany construction and simple appointments. The D-15 is reminiscent of the 15 Series guitars of the 1940s and marks the reintroduction of mahogany-top guitars to Martin's line. Body and neck constructed from genuine mahogany with a rosewood fretboard. The mahogany body and top is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple and yields a surprisingly strong, warm sound with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy trebles.

  • A-frame X-bracing
  • Rosewood fingerboard and bridge
  • Neck width at nut 1-11/16"

I went into Guitar Center today looking around at guitars for a future purchase and after doing a lot of research. I had thought that my first "real" guitar was going to be a Taylor. I began to play some of the Taylors that were in my price range including the DN3, 100s, and 200s and decided to take a look at the Martin wall just to balance everything out. I went over there and began strumming on some of the spruce tops and instantly noticed a much "heavier" sound. As I was playing, a young employee came into the room and grabbed the ONLY brown guitar on both the Taylor and Martin wall. He started playing and the tone of the guitar made me stop and stare. He noticed I was looking for a guitar and put the beauty in my hands. He said this guitar came out of nowhere since that GC didn't carry that model anymore. I started strumming an E chord to see how well it could sing with all strings going. It sounded like a resonant piano with each string pushing through the mix. I then tested its folk ability by doing some Jason Mraz finger picking and this guitar performed. It has the brilliance of a great dreadnought but still has the warm and single string punch that makes for a great picking. The action is incredible with no buzzing at all! The scent of the mahogany really just adds to the experience of playing this thing. This guitar is stunning with its raw beauty in both sound and aesthetics. I fully recommend it to any one looking for a guitar in the $1000 price range with just a unique, multipurpose, and great tonal character. You will absolutely do no wrong with this guitar.

Just try one!

By Adam Brannon

from Urbana, Ohio

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

Ive owned my D-15 for 3 years now. I always wanted one simply for the simplicity and uniqueness. Probably once every 6-12 months I think about buying another acoustic guitar. And every time, I never buy 1 because I cant find one for less than twice the price that sounds as good as this D-15. You owe it to yourself to try one!

Love my D-15

By Steve

from Covington LA

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've had my D-15 since it was first introduced about 10 -11 years ago. I love the full warm rich tones as well as the feel and action. Over time the guitar has just gotten better and better. It stays in tune better than any guitar I've ever had. Tune it once and beat on it all night. EVERYONE that has played it has come away thourghly impressed, especially if I mention the purchase price. The unassuming satin finish always draws attention first and the D15 shiney spot I'm developing is like a badge of honor ( you D15 folks know what I mean). I've found that I can get a varity of sound caristeristics (always excellent) depending on the style of strings I use. The only downside is that the satin finish does tend to scratch eaisly (love bumps). Love my D15 I would buy it again

Perfection

By Colin Bearden

from Eastman GA

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar just arrived at my house and it's wonderful. The tone is bright and full of warmth. The finish is great, it being all mahagony, the guitar is light. The action is great everything about this guitar is perfect. Thank you Martin for making great acoustics. Its different than the spruce top, not as bassey or loud, but the tone is superb. If you already own a spruce top guitar buy this guitar.

Unequaled Rich Sound quality

By Jimbo

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've had my D-15 for nearly a decade and decided to buy it after thumb picking an open low E. That's it, one note. It was the 10th or 12th guitar I had played in a row, and playing that one string caused the guitar to "come alive" in my arms. The amount of rich, luscious sound that came floating up to my ears was second to none. I was guitar shopping with my friend, who was along just for the ride. Both of us walked out of the store with a brand new D-15. Yeah, it was that amazing.

I'm SOLD!

By Aaron

from Nebraska

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

Just got back from the music store with my new D15. I've got to be honest, I almost passed it up due to the homely looks. However, compared to the Gibsons I played it was far superior in sound! It was even better than most of the 2k - 3k Martins I played! I am extrememly pleased. The highs and lows project unlike any guitar I've ever owned. I have a feeling this guitar's going to be in the family for a while!

Best Guitar I've Ever Played

By Lyn

from Eastern PA

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I've had this guitar since about 6 months after its introduction. I played it once in the store and dreamed about it several times after that...finally had the $$$ and purchased it, and am so glad I did - it is warm, full, and bright. Plays like butter and has held up really well. Great value on an American-made guitar by the masters at Martin!

Great Martin for Low Price

By Martinfan

from Georgia

Comments about Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

The Martin D15 is an awesome guitar for the price. I find it's simplicity the best part. No other guitar out there looks the same as the all mahogany body of the d15. The finish is absolutely unbelievable and the d15 projects a sound that is mellow and warm. Its not flossy or ornate, its simple which makes it perfect for someone looking for their first serious acoustic guitar. The price is low compared to every other guitar of the same quality and even many guitars of lower quality. I would definately recommend this guitar to anybody who wants to buy their first quality guitar, or to somebody who is buying their fifth guitar and they want great quality, this guitar is a bargain.
