Before I purchased my 000-15, I did quite a bit of research into the 15 series, and into mahagony. I learned something very important:Guitarists around the country who owned very expensive Martin guitars owned a 15. They all seem to swear by it.It is probably the single best value for the dollar offered in the country. I believe that Martin makes the finest guitars, and this is a Made in the USA all wood, no frills, soft, beautiful and endearing mahagony guitar. Its looks are timeless, pre WWII beauty. The sound is nothing short of addicting. I took the time to write to owners of it; targeting those who owned guitars that retailed for over $4,000. They all reported a real love and dedication to this guitar. They all spoke of its beauty, color, simplicity and of its sound. I have had mine for a few years now, and it is just starting to "open" up. The smell is wonderful. I have one and one of my sons has another (00-15) which are both in Mahagony. For the price, I do not know if there is a better guitar made anywhere, but this has the Made In America quality that comes from dedicated workers who believe in their product; not from forced labor, or cheap labor overseas. This is an American treasure.I now own several Martins, but I turn, almost daily, to my 15, as its sound has no equal, especially for that soft fingerpicking that I do for my family. I love it and hope to keep it until I pass on, and leave it to my son or daughter to play.

    The one in West Va was so memorable that when I can across a used on in very good shape, I sprung for it. It just feels natural in that without the frills you can control it better and it fits like a glove. The sound is never going to be bad and tows the mark. The whole thing is really a masterpiece for this kind of money. Mine is a 1942.

    My Left Arm!!

    By Pleasum

    from San Diego

    I've had mine for about ten years and it has only gotten better with time. I have lots of guitars but always play this one. Amazing volume for a guitar this size and it is extremely comfortable. I will pass this one on to my son for sure. I call it my left arm because if I lost it, I would be crippled!!!!

    Perf Go-Everywhere Guitar

    By junuwine

    from GA mtns

    Same great mahogany smell as my D-28 & sound rings true. Can't go wrong with Made in America instrument. What this lil guitar lacks in frills, it makes up in sound. Great for ladies like me who're not built strong enough to tame a Big Harley or bang all day on a Dreadnaught.Judy

    Martin ooo-15

    Not a whole lot in the way of features on this one, but who cares? The thing just plays and sounds wonderful. I replaced the stock 12's with 10's but noticed a slight loss in volume and tone so I will probably go back to Martin 12's soon enough. The satin finish really gives it a vintage look that makes you feel like you just bought a piece of history; I never thought I would like satin but now I do. And the case it comes with is top-notch. There was a bow in the neck that was easily adjusted, so that was no problem at all. This guitar makes me want to go down and sit next to the train tracks and strum away...

    WOW!!!

    By vintageguitar61701

    from Maryland

    I've been a Martin fan for quite some time, but when I first heard this guitar (a vintage one) played by the great John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers) I was captivated by the sound of this guitar. I spent some time getting to know the model (I spend a long time getting to know the model of guitar before a purchase), I was convinced that I had to have this guitar. I've now had it for about a year and a half, and it has proven to be the most wonderful canvas for music to be made that I have ever gotten to know. To anyone who has a natural attraction to Martin (still can't explain that) this is a wonderful choice. Also let it be known that it is far better for finger picking and classical style playing than for strumming and chords. For that a d-28 or 000-28 would probably be preferable, (also wonderful instruments). This is a wonderful instrument that screams to be played and loved. For that, it is a gem. Also, price-wise, it's pretty good considering that it is made from solid wood and in America, (nothing against the other countries-it's just more expensive to buy American made, which some people find to be important. For me, if it plays well enough, it doesn't matter). Happy Playing! I hope you have found this review helpful.

    All mahogany gloss

    By aspirating musician

    from mpls

    I found a custom version of this guitar recently. It has a reddish stain, all mahogany with glossy back, sides and top. I was looking at used 15 series, but after playing this custom 000 15, I couldn't resist and bought it. The sound and playability are amazing. A little more that the standard 15, but I've got one that looks like no others.

    Awesome Guitar

    By Music Man-2-6.8

    from California

    I have owned My Martin 000 - 15 for three years and love it more everytime I play it. I own 4 guitars 2 Gibsons and 1 Yamaha. The Martin is by far the best. The day I bought it I spent 1/2 a day at the store trying all kinds of different Guitars for the price you will not find a better sounding guitar. Great Job Martin

    Wonderful Guitar

    By The Jason Dixon Line

    from Minneapolis, MN

    I bought the Martin 000-15 about 2 years ago. I have several other acoustic guitars, but I play my Martin 000-15 more than the rest.I had a Highlander IP-1 undersaddle pickup installed by a local acoustic shop. I run it through a Yamaha Acoustic Magic Stomp acoustic processor, & then through a DI. I use Dean Marley ML strings for extra bass on the low E string.I have played many many gigs with my Martin 000-15. It is my guitar of choice. It is a very basic inexpensive guitar with a sweet tone. This guitar will stand up to other guitars twice the price. Excellent value!
