About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker's craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

One of the better Martins, regardless of price.
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The Martin D15M is just fantastic. I was playing up in Atl and I went to a big guitar retailer and played everything they had. I picked a d15m over anything they had in stock. It was a GC, so you can imagine the selection. Ended up buying from American Musical to take advantage of no interest.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
I had a Fishman Matrix Infinity installed in mine. It sounds fantastic hooked up. But, in the studio, it sounds great on a mic.
Feel
Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position?
It feels fantastic. Intonation out of the box was spot-on. I tune down a whole step and it handles it perfectly.
Tone
Is the tone well balanced? How does it project?
I liked this guitar because it's so warm, but not muddy. It has volume, but it's not that "loud but doesn't sound like anything" or "loud but sounds too stringy" tone that you get sometimes. Again, it handles being tuned down to DGCFAD wonderfully, and has plenty of clarity without being too bright.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
A+. Not a flaw to be found. Nice case, too.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
For my money, it was the best value of anything I was considering. It's a real-deal, all solid wood Martin. If you can stomach another couple hundred books to put a pickup in, this is the one for you. Maybe. I mean, different strokes for different folks. But, to me, just something about this all mahogany dreadnaught sounds SO good. My only gripe was that it doesn't come with a neck-side strap button. Not a big deal, but would've been nice not to have to fool with it.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Spot-on.
