The solid east indian rosewood fingerboard will feel good under your fingers, even if you play for hours on end and get the fretboard wet with sweat. This guitar will be a relief to those players who use their fretting hand a lot, since the premium wood and curvature will cut back on fretting hand strain. If you are planning on using the 000-15M for performing, you will be happy to know that the tuning pegs are nickel and open-geared. This means that there is less chance a string will slip out of tune during a performance, which is an annoyance to say the least. The diamond and square fingerboard inlays are a nice touch. It is a little puzzling that such a premium guitar would have a bone nut. This seems cheap. The included 330 hardshell case is good for keeping your acoustic safe through strolls, shows, and bus rides. Though Martin's 15 series has generally received positive reviews, there have not been many reviews of the 000-15M.
