We proudly present Season 1 Episode 1 Martins & More, Maury’s Music’s entertaining and informative podcast featuring special guest T Spoon Phillips, the veteran New York City guitarists and venerable scholar of C. F. Martin & Company history, and all things related to acoustic guitars. This inaugural installment is about mahogany, and mahogany, and more mahogany!
To be more specific, we are exploring Martin’s 15 Series, which includes a variety of traditional guitar body shapes and sizes constructed at the Martin factory in Nazareth, PA, with all-solid mahogany tops, backs, sides.
When did Martin make the first Style 15 guitar? Where they always made with mahogany tops? How does the D-15 M differ from other Martin dreadnoughts? Is the 00-15M too small or just right? What’s the difference between the 000-15M and 000-15SM anyway?! These and many more fascinating questions are answered along the way of Season 1 Episode 1 of Martins & More with your host Maury Rutch and featuring the one and only T Spoon Phillips.
