on order- The Martin 15 Series guitars represent a revolution from the master craftsmen at C.F. Martin. Drawing their inspiration from the Style 15 instruments of the 1940s, Martin 15 Series guitars feature unique design elements and am amazing historical look, with a unique balance between vintage qualities and modern craftsmanship. The results are exceptional instruments with vintage looks, classic tone, modern playability and superior build quality.
The all Mahogany 000-15 has been a fixture in the Martin lineup since the 1930‘s and hearkens back to a more austere time when simplicity and minimalism reigned supreme. The Martin 000-15SML continues the tradition begun by Depression-Era Blues and Country pickers who wanted nothing more than a simple and expressive acoustic guitar. This 000-15SM is relatively free of adornments, with only its inlays, a minimal rosette, and a dark tortoise pickguard, but its tone is warm and balanced, perfect for a wide array of acoustic musical styles.
Featuring all Mahogany top, back and sides and a Dark Mahogany satin finish, the Martin 000-15SM sports a Mahogany modified low oval neck with a high performance taper and an East Indian Rosewood fretboard that meets the body at the 12th fret. The satin finish neck with the high performance taper is extremely expressive and great for bends and hammer-ons, while the 1 3/4" string spacing at the nut and 2 1/4" string spacing at the bridge make this lefty 000-15SM ideal for fingerstyle players of all musical genres.
With an array of classic Martin appointments like an East Indian Rosewood bridge, an all bone nut and a slotted headstock with Golden Age Bright Nickel Side Mount tuners, this 000-15SM lives up to the legacy of great Martin acoustics from the ‘30‘s with a minimalist approach and a warm, balanced tone.
Guitar of choice for Martin Ambassador Jake Bugg.
The Martin 000-15SM auditorium acoustic sports an all Mahogany 000-size body that is perfect for finger pickers. The small body size hearkens back to a time before the Dreadnought came to the fore, delivering the rich and woody tone and surprising volume that we have come to expect from Martin’s 15-series, despite its small size. With vintage appointments like a genuine Mahogany top, back and sides with sitka spruce x-bracing, a slotted headstock and classic dovetail neck construction, the Martin 15 Series auditorium acoustic delivers vintage styling with incredibly rich tone and silky modern playability, in a package that is built to stand the test of time.
