Martin gets distressed with new StreetMaster 15 Series acoustic guitars

After testing the waters with its first relic'd acoustic finish at NAMM, Martin has added a distressed option to two existing 15 Series acoustic guitars with the new StreetMaster models.

The D-15M and 000-15M's distressed satin finishes pay “a respectful nod to the working musician”, capturing the look of well-worn instruments with new-guitar playability.

Elsewhere, the specs remain the same, with solid mahogany top, sides and back.

Both models come in at £1,499/$1,799, including gigbag. Head over to Martin Guitar for more info, and see our reviews of previous D-15M and 000-15M models for a taste of what's to come.
