Hi there

I just made a purchase of a brand new Martin 000-15M accoustic guitar. It´s a brand new model from 2010, but it´s simular to early model (000-15), but with quite a few improvements.

It´s a all solid wood mahogany guitar with rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The bridgepins are made of ebony and the saddle and nut are made of bone.

I just received the guitar today, and the setup was perfect and it was in tune even. smile.gif

The tone is just amazing and everything I was hoping for.......and it smells like vanilla.....hehe.

Price paid: About 1200€

Here are some pictures.

Very nice! Congrats.
Funny about the vanilla smell. The three Gibsons I have, all smelled like vanilla when they were new. The Explorer was almost nauseating.
It diminishes after a few months.

I have a LesPaul that I´ve had for 3 years and it also smelled like vanilla and still does.......but I think the smell from that guitar comes from the case. My SG smelled of laquer when I bought it new 7 years ago, but that smell is long gone, but the vanilla from the LP case is still going strong.

The Martin has also that nice wood aroma from the soundhole, my Ramirez classical also has this smell, and every time I play I get inspired and it reminds me of what a great piece of instrument I have in my hands. smile.gif
