    "A great value in an all solid wood Martin guitar."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    Sound quality is bright with a good balance between bass and treble. I was quite impressed with the sustain. It’s long and has a slight shimmer to it. Impressed with the volume as some have said a 000 body will not be as loud as a dreadnaught. Maybe so, but the sound projection is excellent and loud enough for strummers. I have two Taylor dreads to compare for tone and I would say this Martin more than holds its own. I’m impressed with the note for note clarity. Good for various musical styles from blues to folk to country. Overall, very impressed.
    Feature:
    Standard features for an acoustic guitar of this type. I was glad it came with bone for the nut and saddle. Very loud woody smell. Can smell up a whole room! Nice. The included case is very well made.
    Ease of Use:
    Action was set good right out of the box. This is probably one of the best guitars I’ve ever played for slide. I get very clean tones and not all the rattling. Fingerstyle play and alternate tunings work well.
    Quality:
    I found the overall quality of construction and craftsmanship to be top notch. Some say it’s a plain looking instrument but I view it as one of the prettiest guitars I own. I’ve grown to admire the dark looks and satin finish.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never called so cannot say.
    Value:
    I think it’s well worth the asking price not only in comparison with other brands but for the playability, sound quality and craftsmanship.
    The Wow Factor:
    A very good addition to my gear collection. It fills in a missing gap in my sonic range.
    Overall:
    The Martin 000-15M is a real keeper. It’s my first all mahogany body guitar and very impressed with the tonal qualities. If lost or stolen I would buy another one again. This guitar meets all of my musical and creative needs and has the the sound I’m looking for. As stated above, I own several Taylor guitars and like them very much but they don’t have a guitar like this in their product catalog. Highly recommended.

    Experience: Been playing since 1977

    "Martin 00015M"

    Sound:
    The sound is excellent. I've owned every high end and low end acoustic from $4k to 40.00. This piece is great because its small, but not too small. Hard case. The hog wood is unparalleled. Don't play a Martin for 20 seconds and go to something else. Give it time. Play it for a month and then make a decision. The Taylor guitars will fool when you play them for 20 seconds in the store they sound kind of great and Dave Matthews played one so they gotta be good. Those guys are paid to play what they play and have tons of effects. At the gig they are disappointing. Maybe a few models are ok. This Martin is not overly "Bassy" either as you would expect from a HOG Martin. I've spent years of frustration at live gigs trying to get the BASS out of my D28 so I finally got rid of it. In addition, I've had $4000 Martin electronics fail on the stage. Only other guitar that comes close live are the old Ovations per 1990s with built in pickups. Big body. Not the smaller model.
    Feature:
    The body is not quite a half width, so it handles better but doesn't lose tone like the half body Yamaha APX series that sounds good in the store, but once on the gig or playing outside in the humidity turns into a toy. Keep in mind that if your just playing to yourself in your living room, any guitar will do, or an overpriced Taylor. But if you need real tone from a real wood guitar; Martin is the only choice. The only other acoustic guitar I've ever played that is a great one are the old 1980s Ovations with built in Piezo pickups. No pedal needed! They are awesome and can be found for about $100 used. (Hint: CC67 model made in Korea)
    Ease of Use:
    Very playable. Nice neck, unlike the higher end Martins that have that crappy tapered neck. This one is the best of both. Play it for hours before making decision. Not minutes. It blows the spruce top away. Now lets talk about the cases. The end Taylor cases are like carrying a coffin around to the gig. Again, if you play at home for your wife: doesn't matter. But if you play live every week; then lugging equipment around matters. Especially in the summer. Unless your famous enough to have someone carry stuff for you, then life is really not about the music anyway.
    Quality:
    All is good with the 00015M. For $1200. Its the best deal in the world in my humble opinion. If your price driven and most of us are, go with this guitar. It has a nice flat finish that feels and looks natural instead of the usual shinny 70s gloss look that is no good. If the store has more than one in stock, pick the lightest one. The weight varies more than you think. Check the weight. There isn't a reason in the world to pay more than $1200 for a guitar now.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Had no issues. Now this unit does come with a nice case but does not have strap pins or a pickup. Will need to add those at your leisure.
    Value:
    Again, for $1200 this guitar will do everything from jamming in your couch to playing large gigs. I use it for everything. It wont fail and is not so expensive you want to keep it in the case under the bed and play your less expensive ax out. I hated that about the higher end guitars. I was always afraid to play them out and often. I rarely played them and ended up selling all my expensive guitars.
    Overall:
    I purchased this guitar a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! The reviews on youtube are not correct when they compare it to a Taylor GS mini. There is no comparison. The Martin is a superior instrument. The Taylor GS Mini is a toy with a soft case. don't fall for the new GS Mini electric either. I had 2 of them. They sound terrible live. Keep in mind the GS Mini uses medium strings; not lights. the hog model is the only one worth anything and I would buy it used, not new. All Taylors are grossly over priced. Some of the guys on Youtube that are playing the 00015M are kids and not really musicians and don't know what they are playing so don't be fooled by the reviews of them either on this guitar. They point out some shortfalls that aren't real. They don't know their trade.
