Acoustic Guitar Buying Guide

There are a lot of things to consider when shopping for an acoustic guitar. Among those are obviously price, the skill level of the guitarist, and the type of music that will be played. Additionally, you will want to consider specific features to the guitar itself, among those are the wood used in construction, the type of neck, the size of the guitar, and whether the guitar has on-board electronics. For the purposes of this guide, we will look at each of these items in the paragraphs to follow.

Martin has added the dreadnought sized D-15M and its smaller bodied sibling, the 000-15M – the M suffix indicates a number of spec changes over the existing 15 Series guitars that result in a small price increase.

Both instruments feature Martin's bolt-assisted mortise and tenon joint, first seen on the D-1. Not only helping to keep costs down, this 'glued and screwed' assembly has also proved structurally stable and tonally more than up to the job.

Featuring the no-frills look and satin finish of the existing 15 Series these are darker stained over genuine mahogany (including the neck) instead of sapele – a close relative that possesses very similar qualities.

When it comes to acoustic guitar design and construction, there's something to be said for the plain and purposeful approach. An acoustic guitar's worth is all too often measured by the quantity of molluscs who sacrificed their lives to decorate it or the length of fancy materials that bind every conceivable body, neck or headstock; or indeed the sheen emanating from the precious plating of its metal ware.

What you get here instead are the barest essentials for good, workable, pro-standard, six-stringed musical instruments.

Solid timbers are used throughout the 000-15M's construction. Where Martin could have skimped with laminated sides, back or neck, it has remained faithful to the ethos of quality not frills. So here we see no bindings, yet the subtle lines where the top and back join the rims and where the East Indian rosewood peghead veneer meets the headstock, leave a tasteful impression of such things.
