Martin is one of the most famous names when it comes to acoustic guitars, and for good reason. The company is one of the most revered and long lived producers of acoustic guitars that have been the weapon of choice for many professional guitarists across a ton of different genres and decades.

The 000-15 features an all-mahogany construction which gives it a balanced voice with a strong mid-range presence that works for various musical and playing styles.

The guitar's smaller 000 body complements its tonewood to give it a tone that's reminiscent of early Americana music.
