What We Think

Love it!  It's hard to beat these all-hog (Sapele in this case, Mahogany's brighter pseudo-cousin!) Martins for the value--warm, woody, and punchy.  Great for fingerstyle but also responds wonderfully to a pick.  A killer blues guitar and a fantastic vocalist's accompaniment as well.  Don't miss it!

Manufacturer's Description from Martin

Manufacture of the Martin 000-15 began in 1998. The 000-15 is part of Martin's 15 series - which are some of their most affordable instruments. As early as 1917 and up to the 1940s, many Martin guitars were built with tops, sides and backs of mahogany. The 15 series continued this tradition with solid, all mahogany construction (or from 2004 onwards sapele, a close relative of mahogany) . 15 Series guitars are also among Martin's most visually distinctive and innovative guitars with features including herringbone rosettes, rich satin finish, patented neck mortise and A-frame “X” bracing for enhanced tone.

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
