A sensational solid mahogany construction
For a tone that has power and warmth, there is no better wood than mahogany. Showcased on both the body and neck, mahogany encompasses punchy sonic attributes that team well with its gorgeous tonal resonance brought by emphasis of midrange frequencies. It grows tighter and more focused as it matures, meaning your guitar will only get more beautiful with age. And it looks truly stunning too. This guitar displays the natural grain of mahogany as well as its deep, warm colour. Because sometimes simplicity is best.
Smooth, flawless fretting
Practice for hours and hours on the robust mahogany neck. Such stability is needed for the thinnest part of the guitar that endures the most attack. It has been fashioned in a low oval shape that enhances playability and sits comfortably in your grip. And attached on top is a stunning East Indian rosewood fretboard. Not only is it the perfect accompaniment to the 000-15SM's body, but it delivers a gloriously balanced tone that lends itself to a range of playing techniques. From solid lows to sparkling highs, project every note with clarity. Its smooth finish is perfect for swift chord changes and intricate fingerpicking styles and promises to never slow you down.
Stability from the inside
Located inside the resonant body is non-scalloped X-bracing, a sturdy structure that prevents the guitar's body from collapsing under high string tension or excessive playing. Tune up and play without worrying about any potential guitar body tragedies, the bracing is strong enough to withstand any amount of pressure and even enhances your sound whilst doing so.
Gorgeous, acoustic design
Even from just one look at the Martin 000-15SM, its simplistic beauty is astounding. Its deep, natural colour radiates with a satin finish, allowing the solid mahogany body and neck to take centre stage. Subtle details such as diamond and square fretboard inlays and a faux tortoise pickguard have been added to enhance an already stunning aesthetic. But what makes this instrument stand out is its slotted headstock that features an elegant square taper, offering a truly beautiful traditional and classic appearance. The headstock is then topped with golden age bright nickel machine heads and Martin's signature inlay for a dazzling final touch.
Protect such a beautiful instrument on the road, a hardshell case is included, meaning you can travel stress-free whilst the case absorbs any knocks or scrapes. The 000-15SM will be ready and waiting for you, always in pristine condition.
