Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar Review :: Martin Guitar Reviews


big booming bass and well-balanced mid-range to treble tones.


Description
This acoustic guitar is all about tone. This Martin dreadnought marks the reintroduction of mahogany-top guitars to Martin s line. Body and neck constructed from genuine mahogany with a rosewood fretboard. The mahogany body and top is much lighter in weight than rosewood, koa, or maple and yields a surprisingly strong, warm sound with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy trebles. The Martin D-15 Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is reminiscent of the 15 Series guitars of the 1940s.

Sound of Martin D-15 Guitar

  • a deep, great warm tone with a gutsy bass rumble that fills a room with that unmistakable Martin sound;
  • the mid-range and trebles are crystal clear;
  • suspended chords sound especially sweet;
  • got that booming full Martin acoustic tone;
  • huge sound, very loud;

Pros of Martin D-15 Acoustic Guitar

  • very good guitar, beautiful tone, very expressive and sturdy;
  • great for blues, country and vocal accompaniment;
  • a very comfortable and fast neck;
  • the quality is very high, just what you would expect from Martin;
  • a bargain for the price especially with the hardshell case included;
  • the mahogany gives a somewhat bright response as well as excellent treble and a great low-end sound;
  • fit and finish are flawless;
  • the case it comes with is really a good one, well made and lined with soft fabric;
  • big booming bass and well-balanced mid-range to treble tones.

Cons of Martin D-15 Guitar

Suggestions for this Martin Guitar

  • very light in weight, it might take you some time to get used to when playing standing up;
  • installing a bone saddle and nut, some consider it being necessary for better tone and sustain;
  • not if you're looking for a bright tone, but for a beautiful warm tone this is the guitar you want;
