Very nice guitar for the money. Great for blues, ragtime fingerpicking etc. I was one of the first people on Ted's list when he started custom ordering these. Mine is the custom with 1 3/4' nut as well as gloss body (no binding). I removed the pickguard shortly after picking mine up at the Martin Guitar factory and love the looks.

My Martin custom shop 00-18v (custom ambertone w/ Adirondack top) offers a bit more in volume and sparkle but where the 00-15M excels is in that midrange which suits certain musical styles. Funny as it is, this guitar actually sounds good with what I would consider "dead" strings.

You can't go wrong for the money and Ted is a great guy to deal with.
