Exceptional tone, exciting playability and classic Martin good looks.

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. Includes case.

      Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

      If you're wondering what guitar is right for you, then you're asking yourself the right questions. Sound? Feel? Price?

      For me, it took 3 years to find the right new acoustic for me and the 00015m is IT!. I spent countless hours going into shops, playing every brand and every model I could find, and nothing really spoke to me. Sure, some sounded amazing, but the price didn't fit my budget, or they were so bright they sounded fake. (cough, Taylor)

      So by accident I picked up a 00015m. I thought it was the D15m and started playing it. BLOWN away. I was even more blown away when I realized I had the 000 body. So I then got the D15m expecting it to be even better. To my surprise, it wasn't.

      The 000 offers everything. A perfectly EQ sound, look, feel, character, smell... it just spoke to me. If you've been playing Dreadnoughts because you need more volume, I encourage you to go check this guitar out. It's just as loud if not louder than many Dreads out there. And as far as price is concerned... I would consider this to be the best, very best guitar in it's class and then some.

      Like I said, it took me 3 years of looking. Not just on weekends but all the time. I'm thrilled I stopped at the 000 and it may perhaps be the last acoustic I ever buy. Try it, listen to it, love it.

      If I had to make one disclaimer, you must know that this guitar does not come with electronics. Be thankful for this. Martin uses Fishman.. and nothing against them... but there are just so mych better pickups out there. An LR Baggs will be in mine soon.. but I've also heard a K&K Pure Mini in one and it sounded awesome! And of course.. nothing can ever compare to the beautiful tone of a mic on this acoustic. It's a shining star.

        Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

        You probably think I a crazy for writing a fourth review of this guitar. But....I have a D 40 a HD 28 and an 00015 SM. Love them all. But the 00015 ends up in my hands every day. This is a love story I have gone through many a guitars in the last few year and you have had the reviews. It fits my body and my ear. I have been through many a guitar over the last few years. This one I will never let go.

            I own a Martin 1973 D-35 and a 1994 Custom -15.
            I was looking at the CEO-7 and the 000-15M. I'm glad I went with the 000-15M.
            Similar to the smaller 1940's mahogany guitars, it has very balanced sound, great for chording, bar chords, fingerpicking and it's very comfortable to play. Great smaller Martin Guitar.

            Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

            I have a 45 year old D18 that is a lovely old guitar. I also have a new, very expensive Taylor. This 15 M is by far and away the guitar I now spend the most time with. I love its crisp compact, yet full and clear, sound. An absolute gem. Highly recommend.

              Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

              I had traded my 000 15 about a year ago for some foolish reason. Finally I was able to aford another one. I have several Martins that are high end but this is the one I play everyday. It has a certain thump to it. It has a great mahogony tone and a playability as good as any high end Martin or Taylor. This is the one you take with you on the road or to the bar.

                great little guitar. Big sound in a small package. The neck and action on this are incredible. Really tight and fast on the neck. Feels like an electric.

                Really, really happy with this purchase. Came in perfect condition and has an incredible smell that I hope never goes away.

                  00015 I miss you

                  Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

                  Over the last year I have bought and traded about a dozen or two guitars. I ended up trading my 00015 for something else. I don't really remember since suffering from an "I want" syndrome. Having sent my self into a selfstyled recovery program. (Locking myself into a montra of "enough is enough". This is the only guitar I really really miss. The 00015 really is one of the best guitars made for the price. It has so much authenticity. It is the only one I have regrets. Lets see where is my check book.

                    Comments about Martin 15 Series 00015M Acoustic Guitar:

                    This guitar is an absolute gem! After I played the first song on it and all I can really say is HOME. It is warm, it is sweet, it blends well in chords, but lets single notes shine. It also has plenty of bass and that full Martin tone. I have really only played my HD-28 for the last decade, but I can already tell the 000-15m is going to be a friend. How do I know, because the first time I picked up the guitar, its voice found its way into songs I have played for years. Played them mostly the same, but the feel, touch, and sound was just a bit more mellow and I let a few more notes ring clear. I would not say the 000 is better than my HD because she is my baby, it is just a different guitar.

                    What I really dig is the versatility, you can flat pick and get into it and it loves it, feeling mellow no worries, it like to be played soft as well. It's not a cannon like my dread and maybe not as full in sound because of the size, but I was looking for something different, and it has plenty of projection to play with friends. Intonation is absolutely perfect. I am not a finger style guy, but just messing around you can hear that it loves it. I did get a chance to play a 00-15 before I ordered this guitar and that one is a finger style guitar in my opinion.

                    So to sum it up, very versatile, beautiful voice, the simplicity of its design is beautiful in my opinion and it's a keeper. If you're heavy handed and you do not have another guitar this may not be the one, because it does max out if you really spank it, other than that I think folks will love it. Obviously, if you can play one before you buy than do it, because the words warm and sweet may not mean the same to you as they do to me. All smiles in the northern prairies on the 000-15m!
