A variation on the D-15 played by Chris Martin of Coldplay, with an all-mahogany body, the 15 Series DC-15ME Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar produces a warm, rich, full tone. This dreadnought acoustic-electric cutaway model is crafted with an East Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The beauty of the fingerboard is enhanced with diamonds and squares position inlays. Fishman's Matrix VT Enhanced electronics complete this model and make it a very affordable and versatile instrument for player looking for a classic, timeless model.
Matrix VT Enhanced A Sound That Raises the Standard of Excellence
The Matrix VT Enhanced feature a new bridge plate mounted transducer to add dimension, resonance and body to the tone of the guitar.
The Aura VT Enhanced and Matrix VT Enhanced are unobtrusive, with no controls or holes cut into the side of the guitar. The easy-to-use Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls are mounted inside the soundhole for convenient access during performance. The resulting sound quality meets the Martin standard of excellence with an unmatched sound and responsiveness to touch and playing.

I had a chance to play this guitar at a local Authorized dealer several months back and was so pleased with its sound and feel, since I like the feel of a Dreadnought, that I had to have one. The older ones came through with a pickup mounted at the base of the fingerboard and seemed kind of tacky to me though. Rest assured that the newer Fishman Matrix VT Enhance electronics and there unobtrusive placement are superb. This guitar is destined to be a classic and you cant beat the light weight feel and sound of Mahogany. If I had any complaints about this package, since it comes with a sturdy well padded professional case, is the weight of the case. This can be improved!
