We wrote back in February about the Martin 000-15SM Custom being developed by Martin and My Favorite Guitars. From our regular trolling in the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum, we have learned that the guitar is now shipping to the first 28 people that ordered the guitar. As we reported last month, the Martin 000-15SM Custom has the same appointments as the new Martin 000-15M and Martin D-15M but with the 12-fret body style of the Martin 000-15S.
My Favorite Guitars is currently taking orders for the next batch – which we would also expect to sell out. The gutiar is now priced by MFG at $1,249.
If you can’t afford to spend that much or can’t wait that long, we’d suggest taking a look at the Recording King ROS-606. It’s available for just over half the price and is currently shipping from Amazon.
