Best acoustic for the money
First off, Sweetwater's customer service is fantastic. My sales tech, Mark Stein, is a joy to deal with.
The Martin 00-15M is my new #1. The solid mahogany really brings out a sweet, round midrange that isn't honky, but very creamy. The treble is nice and sparkly, almost a bit of jangle, but not harsh at all and doesn't stand out as much as the beautiful midrange. The bass is very warm and tamed, just perfect in my opinion. The fretwork is stunning as is the entire fit and finish. The mahogany is very gorgeous in person, as is the rosewood bridge and fretboard. The guitar smells very nice as well; somewhat of a nitrocellulose "vanilla" smell mixed with freshly cut mahogany... Intoxicating. This thing plays like a dream too; nice, low action, but still feels like a vintage acoustic. The neck profile is a very comfortable oval C shape similar to a 60's strat in my opinion, but not quite as chunky. As with most "parlor-sized" smaller body acoustics, the sound breaks up a bit when strumming hard, but the tone is still amazing. The perfect guitar for me.
