The Martin D15 is a simply-decorated reintroduction of the mahogany-top acoustic that was so popular in the 1940's (currently Martin's most affordable guitar). The D15’s solid, genuine mahogany or sapele construction produces exceptional tone.
Features of the Martin D15 include a 2-piece back, A-frame X-bracing, a 20-fret rosewood fingerboard, a rosewood bridge and a satin body finish. The top is trimmed with a single banded gold herringbone decal rosette and a tortoise-colored pickguard. Mellower tonality and the classic playability and heritage of an American-made Martin instrument make the D15 a tremendous value. Hardshell case included.
