The Martin 000-15ME is a limited edition electro acoustic guitar that hails from the Martin 15 series and adds an upgrade to the original 000-15M thanks to the Fishman electronics. For almost two centuries Martin have been pioneers in the luthier world, building a wide range of high quality guitars that produce a fantastic sound every time. The 000-15ME has the traditional dreadnought body profile and has been constructed using high-caliber material to ensure all-round quality.
The 000-15ME follows suit from previous Martin models and is built with a powerful dreadnought body and 000-14 fret body size. The body, back and sides of the 000-15ME guitar is constructed solely out of solid mahogany tonewood. Martin have reinforced the body top using the A-Frame ''X-1'' bracing technique which bolsters the sound and offers a wider tonal range with a strong midrange. The use of solid mahogany allows the guitar to resonate brightly and as the 000-15ME has barely any additional appointments, it has a sincerely natural dark wooden finish. The dreadnought body profile is one of the most recognisable and adored guitar shapes and has been increasingly popular since its creation by Martin all those years ago.
Securely fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck to match with the solid mahogany body. The neck has a scale length of 25.4 inches and has a modified low oval shape profile which feels comfortable to play but also feels robust enough to endure more enthusiastic movements. Married to the neck is a sumptuous 20-fret solid East Indian Rosewood fingerboard, with 14 of the frets being open to you and adorned with sophisticated diamond and square position inlays to guide you up and down the neck with confidence.
FISHMAN THINLINE GOLD+ ELECTRONICS
Martin have fitted the Fishman Thinline Gold+ preamp to the 000-15ME guitar and enables you to play at high volumes. There is a short distance between where the undersaddle pickup sits and where the mounted preamp is, thus upholding a strong signal. The preamp works beautifully with the solid mahogany body construction to produce a clear, articulate tone whether it is played through an amp or recording equipment.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Martin have included nickel open geared tuning machines with butterbean knobs to guarantee each string is accurately tuned, while the solid East Indian Rosewood bridge establishes a firm connection between the strings and the body so you can play with confidence.
A single ring herringbone rosette decorates the soundhole and a tortoise pickguard sits below it to offer additional protection against scratches on the body top, while giving the guitar a distinguished overall appearance.
The Martin 000-15ME is a first-rate electro acoustic guitar with a minimalistic style but is packed with great sound ability that will last the coming years the more you play it.
