The Martin 00015M Acoustic Guitar looks like it came right out of the history books and it delivers a sound for the ages. 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.

The Martin 00015M offers a perfect blend of vintage features and modern technology to create an acoustic guitar of exceptional tone, playability and classic Martin good looks. Back, sides and top are bookmatched solid genuine mahogany with A-frame Sitka Spruce X-bracing and a traditional maple bridge-plate. The 14-fret neck”also genuine mahogany”is joined with an East Indian rosewood fingerboard and headplate. The traditional rosewood belly-bridge is fitted with a bone saddle, and the nut is fashioned from bone as well.

The Martin 000-15M is embellished with a dark mahogany stain and a satin lacquer finish. The end result is a guitar of beauty and simplicity with a warm, rich mahogany voice.

    Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

    I went into my local guitar center just because I was in the area at the time, and I walked into the acoustic room. Despite the wall being covered in guitars, this guitar stood out to me. It's simply beautiful. So, naturally, I picked it up and sat down with it. I say this with total seriousness, as soon as I strummed a simple C cord, my jaw dropped. It's a smaller body instrument, so one would expect it to sacrifice the volume and lower tones that you'd see on, say, a dreadnought, but it's all there. I started to strum some more, and pick a little bit here and there, and the guitar is so effortless to play, it's almost like it plays itself. Unfortunately, I had to hang it back up.
    After about five or so times of going in and playing other guitars, I always ended up with this one in my hands. Needless to say, I had to have it. Fortunately for me, my local guitar center was having a sale, so I got a decent discount on it.
    The instrument doesn't ever disappoint. Every time I open the case I get a whiff of the cinnamon-y mahogany smell, which is something that has to be experienced. Buy this guitar. If you're on the fence about it, do it. It's a little on the expensive side, but there's something about the Martin tone that you can't quite describe until you play it, and as soon as you play this little guy, you'll fall in love.

    One of the best purchases I've ever made.

      Very nice build. I purchased the 000-15M for its smaller body and its retro look. This is my eighth Martin, and I am very pleased with the guitar. I have absolutely no complaints.

            This guitar not only has a rich sound but it smells like new wood when you play it.
            It is a small bodied guitar that will sound off when played briskly. The satin finish and mahogany wood are pleasing to look at and feel. Easy string tension and action make practicing longer possible.

                  Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

                  This was my first new guitar purchase. I wanted to buy a smaller (than a dread) one for better ergonomics. I also wanted a warm, mellow, soft, well-balanced sound. My research led me to mahogany, to Martin, to the 00015M.

                  When I got it home and started playing, I kid you not, I felt like I'd slipped into a vat of warm butter. So velvety smooth and a completely balanced sound. I never imagined that just slow thumb strumming a basic chord could sound so good. I cannot put this guitar down. I am beginning to get a glimpse of why people speak of Martin so highly.

                    Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

                    I did a head-to-head sound test in the store between a 000-RSGT (which I already own) and a 000-15M.

                    My wife really loved the sound of the 000-15M and said I should get it.

                    Who am I to argue with my wife?

                    So with spousal approval, and the fact that Guitar Center had a 15% off coupon that actually worked on Martins, I had to get it.

                    No regrets at all. Nice mellow sound, even though it's new. I did take it for a full setup as the string action was a bit high, but I do that to most of my guitars.

                    Overall I'm very happy with it and would not hesitate to recommend this 000-15M to anyone.

                    This guitar is everything you've read and heard about. Warm mahogany sound with excellent string balance. Unlike many guitars that are described as having a warm tone the 000-15M has very good string definition. It has the bass tones you would expect from a Martin, but the highs are very detailed without being shrill. Very pleasant to the ears. This guitar is surprisingly lightweight. Very comfortable to play. Kudos to Joshua Crabb at Guitar Center in Lubbock. He was very helpful and professional. My guitar had to be ordered. It arrived extremely quick. About 4 days before I thought I would see it at my door! Overall, it was good experience.

                    Received my 00015M two days ago, it was a gift to myself for my birthday. It is what I expected, great sound, easy to play which is what I expected from a Martin guitar. I play finger style and flat pick depending the type of music I am playing. I find the 00015M to be very good for finger style.

                    Simply Amazing!!!

                    By Joel Fredrikson

                    from Sioux Falls, SD

                    Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

                    I ordered this guitar thinking I would use it mostly for fingerstyle blues playing around the house, but as soon as I took it out of the case and started playing it I was BLOWN AWAY by the sounds coming out of it. I own an older Taylor 814, and that guitar is amazing, and I was even trying some other higher end guitars against it (000-28 and D-35), but they are SO expensive. I tend to have very high expectations of guitars once you're paying over $2,000, so I didn't expect too much out of this one, but in my opinion it is the best sounding guitar I have ever played! It is a very balanced, warm tone (maybe a bit more low end would make it perfect) with crisp highs. The thing that really impressed me about the sound was how it cut through when my wife and I were practicing some songs for a wedding. We sing really loud, and the piano was cranked up, and this little guitar cut through all of that even better than dreadnaughts that I have played! Not only does it sound incredible, but the playability is immaculate. The action is just right (maybe a TAD low for heavier strumming), and the neck is very small, which I love because my hands are smaller. My Taylor has an awesome neck, but I liked the feel of this one even better in my hand. I also like the meat and potatoes simplicity of this guitar. No flashy gimmicks, just pure sound quality (although the open tuners, inlays, and dark mahogany are simply stunning). Given the price, the sound, the ease of playing, I would say this is my favorite guitar I have ever played. I can't wait to install my L.R. Baggs Anthem SL and see how it sounds plugged in! Buy it, buy it, buy it!!!
