big booming bass and well-balanced mid-range to treble tones.

This acoustic guitar is all about tone. This Martin dreadnought marks the reintroduction of mahogany-top guitars to Martin s line.

The mahogany body and top is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple and yields a surprisingly strong, warm sound with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy trebles. The Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is reminiscent of the 15 Series guitars of the 1940s.

Martin D-15 Custom Spruce and Rosewood

quite a perfect sound, definitely studio quality.

Reminiscent of the 15 Series guitars of the 1940s – this model eschews vintage all-mahogany construction for a select solid Sitka spruce top and the ringing punch and sustain of solid East Indian rosewood back and sides. The D15 combines select woods and Martin quality in a tonally rich dreadnought! Since it offers a loud, bright treble response, genuine Mahogany was used for the top, back and sides. The modified low-oval mahogany neck is set with a mortise-and-tenon neck joint and has an adjustable truss rod and solid Indian rosewood fingerboard. The body and neck are bound in tortoise-colored binding. The Martin D-15 Custom Acoustic Guitar also has a rosewood bridge, dot fretboard inlays, rosewood headstock overlay, and an inlaid single-ring rosette. It looks quite simple, but expect a wolf in sheeps clothing. Only available through Musicansfriend.
