This Martin D-15M StreetMaster 6-string acoustic guitar delivers big-box amplitude, focus, and balanced tone with broken-in looks and feel, thanks to its dreadnought body style and distressed finish. Built from solid mahogany and given a street-worn look in a tip of the hat to the working musician, this great-sounding acoustic guitar imparts warm, lively characteristics to your playing, along with an amazingly rich tonal complexity. The D-15M has always been popular here at Music Experience due to its versatility, playability, and real-world price tag, so we're confident you'll fall in love with this Martin D-15M StreetMaster acoustic guitar — right from the first strum!
There's a good reason that singer/songwriters swear by all-mahogany acoustic guitars such as this Martin D-15M. The naturally warm and lively tone of mahogany is extremely forgiving and also provides a rich tonal complexity that's somewhat reminiscent of an electric sound. At the same time, the deep timbre of this D-15M StreetMaster leaves plenty of sonic space for a vocal, acting as an excellent source of accompaniment.
The rich tone and loud volume of the D-15M StreetMaster come partly from its ever-popular dreadnought body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for pairing with a banjo (which was a common combination in Martin's golden era, the 1930s) or other instruments in an ensemble. The dreadnought body style also gives you well-balanced tone, making this D-15M an excellent choice for recording in the studio.
Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin D-15M StreetMaster acoustic guitar. It features one of Martin's amazingly playable modified low-oval neck profiles, which gives you enough girth to hold onto while still allowing you to play faster lines unhindered. It has a standard neck taper, and the Plek'd frets and smooth katalox (Mexican royal ebony) fingerboard ensure a playing experience that few guitars can offer.
Martin Guitar has expanded their popular solid mahogany 15 Series with a respectful nod to the working musician. The D-15M StreetMaster® model is built to the same specifications as the D-15M model but Martin has added a beautifully distressed satin finish. The StreetMaster® is perfect for your next gig, whether it be at the historic Ryman Theater or a day of busking in the big city.
