Released January, 2009
The Pros:Consistent tone and performance day after day. Action is easy to use, fretboard is very comfortably set. Tone is soft and beautiful, a very sweet sounding guitar.
The 000-15 is an acoustic guitar from Martin. Like most of Martin's high-end guitars, the 000-15 is made for the skilled acoustic player. The tone of the Martin 000-15 will stand up to a medium-style strum, but it really shines with fingerpicking and/or slide playing.

It is also a stand-up performer in backing up vocalists. The modified low oval neck shape will feel good on your hand when you're gliding around the fretboard. If you tend to play with a busy fretting hand, you know the value of a comfortable fretboard that won't stiffen you up. This is especially true of acoustic guitars. With this neck style, a long show won't kill your fretting hand. The 000-15 has the option of built-in electronics, which is a plus for those who will be using this guitar for gigging. Instead of the awkward task of miking an acoustic live, you can plug in the pickup and play. The satin finish of the 000-15 ensures that it will be a good visual performer at shows too. The look is classic. Overall, the reviews of the Martin 000-15 have been very positive.
