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.
It's a Martin !!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Again, it's a Martin, it's made in the USA. Everything is well done. General Your general opinion of this product. I love it. The Martin D15m plays great. The action could be a hair lower but not worth having it lowered ! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Warm Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Perfect
