This is a solid wood, smallbody Martin that won't bankrupt you. All solid mahogany (not sapele) with a big voice for such a small instrument. These are no longer made and are getting harder to find.
Right now the 5-15 is tuned to regular tuning with medium Martin strings. It can also be tuned to terz tuning with light strings (effectively like playing a regular guitar with a capo on the third fret). In the past, I have also tuned it to Nashville tuning using light gauge strings combined with the first 3 strings from a 12-string set - this makes it sound like a little 12-string guitar! I've had a lot of fun with this instrument but unfortunately I can only afford to keep one guitar right now (a 000-15 - the big brother of this guitar).
Condition is very good (it is a 2006 model). There is a light shine on the finish under the strings from normal play wear - you could probably buff it out if you wanted but my 000-15 has this too and i think it adds character. A couple of small dings on the side that look worse in the photographs. With the dark mahogany they really just blend in. No cracks or structural damage.
UPGRADES - i'm not sure if a strap
