Martin Acoustic Guitars: D15 Custom Left Handed
by Guitar Guru
”A Left-Handed Guitar That Looks as Good as it Sounds ”
The Martin D-15 Custom Spruce and Rosewood Left-Handed Guitar is an example of Martin’s commitment to providing the very best acoustic guitars for all of its customers, even the often-neglected lefties.
As any left-handed guitarist knows, finding a left-handed guitar that is not only affordable but which fits their playing style can be a daunting task; a task which is made just a little bit easier by the introduction of the Martin D-15.
With a solid Sitka spruce top and a body made of solid Indian rosewood
, this beauty not only has a lovely look; one reminiscent of the 15 series guitars of the 1940’s, but a tone that is richly rounded and warm enough to please even the most discriminating of musical connoisseurs.
On the downside, the D-15 does not lend itself well to heavy picking or strumming and can produce a bit of buzzing when played too aggressively. This fault that can be minimized by changing the weight of one’s guitar strings; but for gentle fingerstyle playing and light to medium strumming it works very well indeed. The Martin D15 compares well to the Martin D28, just not as attractive.
At <$ 1,000 the D-15 is not a cheap acoustic guitar, but it is worth the price if one is looking for a good-quality left-handed guitar that will give years of dependable service.
