The top is braced with Sitka spruce in the D1, A-frame style. The back and sides of this dreadnought are constructed from solid mahogany. A built-in Fishman Gold+Plus Natural pickup and preamp system beautifully captures and amplifies the voice of this guitar for playing onstage.

This Guitar is the deal of the year. I bought it wanting another Martin and one that I could plug in. Believe me, it has the purest tone I've heard at this level. No knobs are needed. Picks up off the body and keeps the full range in tack. We love the Guitar. I'm actually selling two other ACOUSTICS because I'll never pick them up again... with this one within my reach. Try it, you'll love it.
I received this guitar a week ago and we can't put it away. It looks & plays amazing right out the case. This is the Top of the line Guitar in the D-14 size. Great Martin case too. The deep mellow tones sound so sweet. Hard to imagine it will sound better with age... but it will. It is truly a guitar you will cherish playing the rest of your life. It's a steal at this price.
After treating myself at Christmas with the ?Martin D15 Custom? with the Spruce and Mahogany acoustic, which is an awesome guitar, I was hooked. I thought, ?My first Martin?, which was amazing to play right out of the case and I was in love. At the time I thought my dream for a Martin Guitar was finally a reality. Well, recently I was given an opportunity to get an acoustic amp and I was going to have an "under the saddle pick-up" put into my D15 so I could play at parties. THEN I came across this guitar. I tossed the idea around that my D15 didn?t come with any electronics, for me I thought, it should stay that way. I saw this guitar and had it in my ?wish list? for quite some time. Then I received my tax return and I knew I had to have this guitar. I just received the guitar on Friday morning. LET ME TELL YOU that this guitar is BEAUTIFUL! I was almost too afraid to take it out of the case. I looked at her in the case for about 20 minutes in awe. After I inspected it for any damage from shipping, which there wasn?t even a spec of dust on it, I plugged her in to my Marshall AS50D Acoustic amp and I was just blown away. The idea of owning one Martin was a dream come true, but now owning two is a complete thrill. Now I can play in a quiet intimate setting with the D15 and in a larger atmosphere with this extraordinary guitar.This guitar feels great, easy to play right out of the case, action is low and plugged in or not the sound is impressive. C.F. Martin & Co. has created some fine instruments for folks like myself on a budget. Like me, YOU WILL NOT be disappointed at all. Again, this guitar is eye-catching and sounds amazing. Get one!If you?re sitting on a fence deciding on an Acoustic Electric, don?t hesitate on this guitar. She?s beautiful and for me, an inspiration.
