Black binding borders the top, black purfling accents the 2-piece back, and a black heel-cap adorns the solid mahogany neck. Satisfy your desire with an affordable solid wood guitar that is visually distinctive and innovative.

Own a piece of Martin history with this great new take on an old classic.

The Martin 15 Series draws its inspiration from the history books. First offered in 1940, the 15 Series was created as an all-purpose guitar that was simple in design, but loaded with sound and tone. Over the years, Martin’s 15 Series guitars were the go-to guitar for many world-class musicians, and can be heard on numerous Platinum recordings. To honor the Centennial Anniversary of the Martin Dreadnought, Martin has produced a limited run of special 15 Series Dreadnought and 000-15 models. These fine instruments feature a solid Sitka spruce top, abalone “Golden Era” diamonds and square fingerboard inlays, Style-18 back purfling, black top binding and a High Performance neck.
 

FEATURES

  • Built on a dreadnought platform, the Martin D-15 Special acoustic guitar boasts 14 open frets for a unique design and great range of tone. The top, back and sides are genuine solid mahogany, offering a strong guitar tone with warm subtleties in each note's definition. 
  • The vintage sound produced by the Martin D-15 Special acoustic guitar is reminiscent of the Style 15 Martin guitars made popular during the 1940s. Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, this guitar is equipped with a Martin-designed Simple Dovetail neck joint for that famous Martin sustain and long-lasting tone. The results are evident with the strength in tone and power in projection that you hear with each strum of this Martin acoustic guitar. 
  • The Martin guitar's solid mahogany neck further complements the defined acoustic sound of this dreadnought. The bridge and fingerboard are solid East Indian rosewood, adding smooth sustain to the mix. The 14 open frets, 1-11/16 in. nut width, 2-1/8 in. bridge string spacing, and 16 in. radius add comfort for your intricate fingerboard movements. 
  • Other appointments include a single-ring rosette, bone nut, solid/square taper headstock, solid East Indian rosewood headplate, diamonds and square fingerboard inlay, belly-style bridge, nickel open-geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs and a solid black ebony bridge and end pins. 
  • Includes a Martin 345 hardshell guitar case.
