Martin 000-15 M

The Martin 000-15M is an all Mahogany, all wood, guitar. No laminates are used in its construction. While the guitar is pretty basic in looks, its beautiful in its simplicity and even more impressive in the beautiful sounds this guitar produces. Don't be fooled into thinking an acoustic guitar has to be adorned in lots of abolone and mother of pearl to sound awsome. This sound this guitar produces is worth every penny you pay for it. I also have to say how impressed I am with Sweetwater's service and professionalism of its staff. They make several calls to the customer to make sure they're completely satisfied with their purchase. Sweetwater's staff and service are the work of consummate prosessionals. Sweetwater is the apex of music industry equipment sales. I will never go to another vendor for a guitar or related equipment . Do yoursel a favor, if you're reading this, you've found the right place to make your purchase.

Love my 00015M lefty

I was trawling around the local guitar shops for a bit of an upgrade from my beginner Ibanez AW30. Being a lefty of course there were usually limited choices. I tried a couple of high end Taylors and Martins, and then tried the 00015M. Love at first strum. I like the warm sound so much better than the $k dreadnoughts I tried. Playability and build quality is excellent. And the look, especially in the Burst, stands out from all the spruce-topped guitars while looking all humble and all.Really there's nothing I don't like about it; highly recommended if you are looking for something just a little different.

Simple, and amazing.

Everything about this guitar feels and looks great. I'm a bit of a minimalist, so I love that Martin made this no-frills guitar in this price point, by skipping out on fancy extras. Mahogany all around, including the neck, with an Indian rosewood fingerboard. This is the cheapest Martin with wood all-around, that doesn't use the rich-lite stuff (synthetic) on the fingerboard. This guitar practically plays itself, and I will keep it for as long as I can! I should also add that I played a cheap Epiphone AJ-15(lefty) for the last 17 years or so, intermittently trying out other mid-range guitars (Guild, etc). I didn't want to take the dive and spend over $1000... But honestly, none of those sounded 'better' enough compared to the cheap Epiphone, so I sold them off one by one, always going back to the Epi. This guitar is truly better--it sounds better, plays better, and even smells nice! So if you're hesitant, don't be. The $700-900 range guitars will not get you there.

beautiful non-bling Martin

Finally broke down and bought a decent acoustic ,I,m a long time electric guitar player but really never owned a good sounding and playing american guitar, I tried a number of inexpensive overseas alternatives none of which lasted very long ,I,m just going to say I don,t care for over done bling on guitars so this Martin had a lot of appeal to me ,love the 40,s retro look,great feel,and beautiful warm tone as always a great deal through Sweetwater,thanks guys.
