« Martin D-15 »Published on 03/28/10 at 15:00
i bought this beautiful guitar in New Mexico about 5 years ago at Music Go Round in Albuquerque. I was lucky to find it and get it for $500.00 -- it was a steal. a friend of mine, a wonderful guitarist and bassist, spotted it and told me about it and i ran (actually drove) down there and grabbed it. yeah, i owe him one!
my guitar has the best acoustic sound of any guitar i've ever heard. the bass really comes out fully and the highs are clear and bright.
i have to really mess with the eq to get it to sound good plugged in. not that that's a bad thing -- but it took me a while to figure out how to get it to sound clear and bright thru the sound board.
the mahogony is so sweet you can almost kiss it -- ok, so i have kissed it -- geeesh. don't make fun of me. you would to, if your guitar was as good to you as mine is to me. beautiful fret board -- stays in tune great but only likes d'addario strings.
If you've ever put your hands on the deliciousness of a martin d-15, you probably fell under it's spell, too. Just gotta have one!
