Martin D15M Solid Mahogany Vintage
- Out of stock
Martin has long recognized the excellent tonal qualities of mahogany – bright, clear trebles and a warm mid-range. As early as 1917 and up to the ’40s, many Martin guitars were built with tops, sides and backs of mahogany. Today the 15 SERIES continues this tradition with solid, all mahogany (or sapele, a close relative) construction. Among our most affordable solid wood guitars, 15 Series guitars are also our most visually distinctive and innovative. Features include herringbone rosette, rich satin finish, patented neck mortise and A-frame “X” bracing for enhanced tone.
