The Martin DC-15E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar dispenses with elaborate cosmetics to bring you revered Martin sound at a more affordable price. With either a solid mahogany or sapele body and top, the DC-15E is armed with a Fishman undersaddle transducer. The onboard Prefix Plus Pro preamp makes the Martin DC-15E a fine plug-and-play stage guitar. Other characteristics of the Martin DC-15E dreadnought include a low profile neck shape, rosewood fretboard (1-11/16" nut width, standard 25.4" scale), and a dark mahogany matte finish.

looking for a really warm sounding acoustic? this is the one for you then! unplugged this is one of the sweetest guitars i've ever played, i've owned one for 6 or 7 years now, and the older it has gotten, the better it sounded. not too big on the fishman pickup but that's just me. mf could lower the price, i got mine for a lot cheaper than mf's price but it's still worth it, you won't be dissappointed in buying this guitar!
My Wife bought this guitar and an Amp from here for my Birthday because I was deployed. On top of how happy I was to be home, she presented me with this masterpiece. Everything about this guitar is awesome. The crisp sound and the finish is what makes this stand out. I have played several other guitars in my life, but none comes close to the quality, sound and craftsmanship that comes with a Martin.
I bought the Martin DC15-E a year ago. It is probably some of the best investments in a musical instrument I've ever made. It's quality and beauty all around. It does not have any sophisticated finish of more expensive guitars, no fancy rosette, no abalone bindings, or lacquer layer. But it has the sound, intonation, playability, and craftsmanship of much more guitars. As a matter of fact, it's simplicity and tone is what attracted me to it. The finish has a satin feel to it. The sound was a bit brighter than I expected when I first got it, but it's becoming more warm and full. I always keep it in a hard shell case, when I'm not playing it, and it rarely goes out of tune. Highly recommend it!
I bought this guitar back in 2003, after spending 2 hours playing Taylors and Gibsons that cost way more. This guitar feels right, Sounds awesome and is extremely reliable. I tune it and play it, thats it. The truss rod will need occasional adjustment. The pickup is not the greatest (Taylors sound much better plugged in), but its natural sound is rarely beat. My friends play my guitar any chance they get.
Comfortable??.open the case and play it and it?s like your favorite jeans??it just feels right. I?m really happy with it. It feels like you could play this guitar for a long time with no strain on fingers and hand.Great full sound. Just an excellent guitar!
This is a great guitar, what a lady she is. I was on my way to the gig, and the UPS man drove up. She was right out of the box. I tuned her up, and she played a 2 hour gig w/me. It was like dancing with a new partner, but we figured each other out. This is a great guitar.
This is by far the best sounding guitar and best playing guitar I've ever played. It's like picking up an electric it fretts so easy. The sound is out of this world, the Fishman pickup is the cleanest sounding I've ever heard.
my cousen has this guitar. Great Action, Amazing sound, and every time you open up the case it smells like wood! truely Amazing guitar right here, great job martin!
I was in the market for a guitar in the $1000 price range. I shopped around and played numerous guitars. I was interested in Martins, but found the tone to be too dark for my taste. Then, I picked up a D-15 (the version of this guitar w/o the cutaway and electronics). I was blown away. I knew right away that I wanted this guitar. The mahogany is warmer than other Martins and incredibly well balanced from low to high. Delicate playing sounds wonderful and yet it can really growl if necessary. The quality is evident in the sustain. I'm thrilled with my purchase and get excited every time I open the case. (also, like other Martins, the smell of the guitar is quite remarkable - if that sounds weird, pick one up and you'll see what I mean!)
I have been gigging with this guitar for 5 years. The tone of my DC15E cuts through the din of my buddies playing their Fender electrics and provides a beautiful compliment. If it's crunchy Rock, melodic country or blues rythym, this ax holds her own. I like how the matte finish wears to shinny. You can tell it's been loved. The crisp tone and long sustain always gets looks from the crowd when you're picking a tune. I have the stock Fishman pickup and have purchased the Fishman Loadbox Performer. Great combo. I'll grow old with this gal.
