The 17 series offers three models the 000-17 auditorium model in Whiskey Sunset / Black Smoke, 00-17s grand concert Whiskey Sunset / Black Smoke and the sloped shoulder grand concert-sized 00L-17 Black Smoke / Whiskey Sunset. Each model is made with a solid Sitka spruce top and Mahogany back and sides a Guatemalan rosewood fingerboard and bridge.

The 15 Series DC-15ME is a variation of the D-15M famously played by Coldplay's Chris Martin. Each 15 series guitar comes equipped with the new Fishman Matrix VT Enhance acoustic amplification system - a feature to deliver the warmth of your guitars tone at higher volumes without compromising the sound.
