FDP Forum / FDP Unplugged - Acoustic Instruments / The Martin Street Master

Martin Guitar has expanded their popular solid mahogany 15 Series with a respectful nod to the working musician.

The 000-15M StreetMasterâ„¢ model is built to the same specifications as the 000-15M model but Martin has added a beautifully distressed satin finish.

The StreetMasterâ„¢ is perfect for your next gig, whether it be at the historic Ryman Theater or a day of busking in the big city. Enjoy the look and feel of a well-worn instrument with the lifetime warranty and the superb playability of a brand new guitar.

The 15 Series StreetMasterâ„¢ models come with a gig bag making them ready to hit the streets!

Not as ugly as the 2 Millionth Guitar... but still ugly.

Yeah, it's kind of ugly, but I do like that it is a peghead rather than a slothead.

I like the 000-15M Burst much better looks wise.

Looks like Martin is no better at relicing than Fender. A lot of wear on the back of the peghead between the tuners???

IMO, the test for relicing should be like the one for art forgery: If you can stare at it as long and as closely as you wish and simply can't tell if it's the real thing or not, it's successful.

I wish they would either get it right or give it up.

And you give up the hardshell case that comes standard with the regular 15 series.

I'd rather "distress" a 15 series myself - and not worry too much about it because it is an inexpensive (relatively speaking) Martin guitar.

Ugly. Definitely not for me.



It's not just good..

...it's good enough.

If I was in the market, I'd prefer the plain old non-Streetmaster 000-15M.
Same guitar, same price, non-distressed finish.
