« Martin D-15 »Published on 10/15/06 at 15:00
A friend of mine owns this guitar. He bought it new from Guitar center for $849. He bought it after he heard my Martin HD28, and loved the sound!
I love this guitar! An all solid-wood Martin guitar for well under $1000? Wow! All mahogany, or sepele (which is similar to mahogany), nice tight chrome tuners, tusq saddle, corian nut, hardshell case. This guitar has a really nice, warm, dry tone. It plays nicely also, good action, and intonation. I'd recommend this guitar to anyone on a budget, or if you need a second guitar for jams, etc.
The satin finish is fragile, but if you're careful it shouldn't be a problem. No frills, lacks binding also.
Martin quality, great solid tone woods, well constructed. Nice fit and finish, a good value!
If you're looking for an all solid wood, American made guitar for under $1000, you can't go wrong with the Martin D-15!
