An amazing Martin acoustic, exclusive to Just Guitars Australia, this was one of only two 000-15s with these custom spec's, built as a special order for a Martin dealer in the US at the end of 2014. The custom factory upgrades are: tortoise binding, front & back, (there’s normally no binding on the 000-15); matching tortoise endpiece inlay and heelcap; slightly wider 13/4" nut width, (normally 111/16); and real Waverly tuners.
An absolute blinder of a package!
Solid Mahogany body and neck, hand-shaped bone nut and saddle, hand-carved Sitka Spruce bracing, polished Ebony bridge pins, East Indian Rosewood fingerboard & headstock overlay and Abalone snowflake inlays (‘Diamonds & Squares – Short Pattern’). What an absolute blinder of a package! And, of course, it comes in its original Martin hard shell case. Neck profile is Martin’s regular ‘Modified Low Oval’ – about a hair fuller than today’s modern ‘C’ profile.
Whole new tonal soundscapes
The combination of all solid Mahogany construction and Spruce bracing allows the 000-15 to cover a lot of musical ground – it’s one of the best value all-rounders we’ve ever heard – from rock to rootsy folk, blues to bluegrass, clean finger-picking to all-out Ed Sheeran strumming. Much louder and brighter than players of larger-bodied guitars might imagine, our 000-15 easily challenges its dreadnaught cousins for sheer volume and punch. And, largely due to the Spruce bracing, the string-to-string clarity is astonishing. One other thing that will blow you away is how lively the guitar becomes when played with a pick – or retune to something like Drop D or Open G and experience whole new tonal soundscapes, that few other guitars are capable of delivering.
Free courier delivery
Only two of these stunning guitars were built and this is the only one of those two in Australia. The guitar is brand new, (the protective plastic is still on the scratchplate and the end pin is still in its plastic bag in the case pocket), and as with all Just Guitars instruments, FREE COURIER DELIVERY is included to any address in Australia. ($100 airfreight to New Zealand, $175 to the US, Canada, UK and mainstream European countries)
