Up for auction is my 2005 Martin 00-15 guitar. The serial number is 1063956. I bought it new at Gruhn Guitars, here in Nashville. I fell in love with the wonderful small, comfortable size, and the sweet, warm tone that the mahogany (or sapele) produces. The specs say that it is made from either mahogany or sapele...I don't know which it is, but it is beautiful! This guitar is in excellent condition.
After I had it a short time, I decided to put a pickup in it, so I took it to John LeVan to do the work. John is a highly respected luthier, and I valued his opinion. I decided to go with the L.R. Baggs iMix system, for the quality of sound, and for the ability to 'dial in' my guitar's sound with the pre-amp.
I had also noticed that the intonation was a little off, so John did his magic: he filled in the bridge with matching rosewood, (you can't tell by looking at it!), and recut the saddle notch, and cut a new bone saddle for me, then installed the pickup system.
By the time it was done, I had about $1200 in it, but it is an awesome guitar.
About a year ago, I noticed that the back of the neck was getting kind of shiny/glossy, which really made the grain of the wood look gorgeous. I took it to a friend that builds guitars, and he lightly buffed the body and headstock, to give it just a bit of gloss. It really brought the grain of the wood to life! If you look closely, you can see a bit of the gloss reflections in the pictures. Compare this to other online pics of this model, and you'll see the differenc
