Overview

The Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric 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 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar 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's 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 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar 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.


Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Acoustic Pickup System
The Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Acoustic Pickup System's patented design solves the age-old problems of string balance, string spacing and wire-hole placement. That means you can use this pickup on virtually any acoustic guitar.

Martin crafts the Thinline pickup using a highly sensitive copolymer specifically formulated for it. The short distance from the undersaddle pickup to its internally mounted preamp maintains signal integrity. The preamp is designed for guitars that are amplified at high volumes, especially full-size guitars.

The Martin Gold+Plus Pickup is voiced to control boominess and to provide extra brightness. Recommended for musicians in situations where the guitar needs to stand out and sound natural without feedback. The Martin Thinline Gold+Plus Pickup's preamp circuitry gives a battery life of up to 12,000 hours.

        Comments about Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Solid build, lightweight. Nice deep warm sound. This guitar doesn't have the low end the dreadnaught version has but, with the smaller body, that's expected. Doesn't project too much but is still definitely loud enough to be heard when playing with others.

        No Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced

        By Ted

        from Pgh, Pa

        Comments about Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Ordered the 000-15ME with the advertised Fishman Matrix VT Enhanced pickup and preamp. The guitar didn't have this installed, appeared to be a discontinued Fishman goldline pickup with no volume or tone controls. The guitar was beautiful and played like butter, but was not the guitar advertised in the online description, so I returned it.

        from St Pete FL

        Comments about Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        This is a great guitar. NO bling. All of the money goes into the wood selection. Put a set of retro strings on this bad boy and enjoy. Very good tone. Highly recommend.

        Comments about Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        Love this guitar. Please note that the negative reviews are not because of the guitar, rather because there was an error regarding what pickup was installed in this guitar. Mine came factory installed with the Martin Gold pup, look it up, gets great reviews. Price on this was amazing and it sounds and plays so perfect. I have a couple Taylors and a couple Gibson acoustics, this might be my new fav.

        Comments about Martin 15 Series Custom 000-15ME Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        MY wife wanted a small Martin, so we went to Guitar Center(Reno) and they had several in their acoustic room that she got to play. She settled on the 000-15M, but wanted the 000-15ME version. We had to order that version. Came in a week later. She absolutely love playing this guitar and has thanked me many time over for buying it that day. The guys in the Reno store were AWESOME!!
