Martin's 000 Body Shape
The Martin 000-15M features Martin's 000 body shape, which is also known as the auditorium, providing comfort and great volume projection. Its sleek, smooth, curvaceous shape features a 14th fret join construction, which provides more length in the body, offering more volume and bass projection. Its nipped in waste means it will sit comfortably on the knee, accommodating many different playing styles.
The Martin 000-15M features an all-mahogany body, which offers durability and delivers incredibly rich distinct warmth. Mahogany also contains distinct character of soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. The Street Master produces a focused, punchy mid-range, thick well-defined tone, and sings sweet sparkling highs with plenty of characterised warmth. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. As a top wood, the mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, 'woody' tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.
Mahogany Neck & Katalox Fingerboard
The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking styles, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. This mahogany neck features a modified low oval shape, providing comfort, durability, and great playability. The rich mahogany neck is topped with a katalox fingerboard which offers a very responsive bright, snappy attack, coupled with smooth sustain and sparkly highs. The neck is finished in satin for a sleek appearance and smooth play.
Martin Playability Enhanced
For 183 years, Martin have been at the forefront of guitar innovation and premier craftsmanship, bringing consumers some of the best acoustic guitars possible. The iconic Martin tone is known worldwide and playability has become an important characteristic that sets Martin guitars aside from others within the acoustic world. Martin's manufacturing processes has been perfected by their Plek machines, the Pleking process helps Martin guitars maintain their undeniable tone.
The Plek Pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories as a tool that not only does precise fingerboard dressing, but also helps with quality control. The computer controlled device scans and dresses the guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch for using precise string tension emulation. This machine has been a major break through over the last decade, as its eye for detail identifies exactly what needs to be done for perfect fretwork. The Plek Pro offers perfect results, raises the quality of the instrument, and gives you a beautifully toned, easy to play acoustic guitar.
