The Martin 000-15M features an all-mahogany body, which offers durability and delivers incredibly rich distinct warmth. Mahogany also contains distinct character of soft warmth, but is well balanced with a bite of its own. The Street Master produces a focused, punchy mid-range, thick well-defined tone, and sings sweet sparkling highs with plenty of characterised warmth. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. As a top wood, the mahogany offers a natural compression, creating strong fundamentals with a clear and direct focus. Used as back and sides panels, the tonewood provides a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, 'woody' tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.
The reason why many guitar necks are made from mahogany is because the wood responds greatly to picking styles, strumming, and various finger techniques with equal ease. This mahogany neck features a modified low oval shape, providing comfort, durability, and great playability. The rich mahogany neck is topped with a katalox fingerboard which offers a very responsive bright, snappy attack, coupled with smooth sustain and sparkly highs. The neck is finished in satin for a sleek appearance and smooth play.
