NAMM 2016: Martin Guitars To Introduce New 17 and 15 Series Models
The 17 series offers three models the 000-17 auditorium model in Whiskey Sunset / Black Smoke, 00-17s grand concert Whiskey Sunset / Black Smoke and the sloped shoulder grand concert-sized 00L-17 Black Smoke / Whiskey Sunset. Each model is made with a solid Sitka spruce top and Mahogany back and sides a Guatemalan rosewood fingerboard and bridge.
The 15 series features two models the DC-15ME, a dreadnought-shaped guitar and the OMC-15ME, which is a small-bodied Orchestra guitar. Both bodies are made from mahogany with an East Indian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, which are decorated with diamond and square position inlays.
The 15 Series DC-15ME is a variation of the D-15M famously played by Coldplay's Chris Martin. Each 15 series guitar comes equipped with the new Fishman Matrix VT Enhance acoustic amplification system - a feature to deliver the warmth of your guitars tone at higher volumes without compromising the sound.
New cutaway models for the 18, 28 and 35 series, equipped with the Fishman Aura VT Enhance system have also been added to the 2016 range.
