Proud to introduce this stunning little Martin Vintage Mahogany Tenor Guitar 1960's 5-15T No Case - Used
Size 5 Martins definitely win the "cute and cuddly" award as far as flattops go, and the 5-15T (Martin's "entry-level" tenor guitar) had a long and successful production run, judging by how many show-up on the market. To passers-by, they look like outsized baritone ukuleles, but these are 23" long-scale instruments and have a professional feel, tone, and carrying-power despite their diminutive size. Compared to the bigger 0-15T/0-17T models, these size 5 tenors have more bite, snap, and presence in a mix -- but still have the velvety/mwah mids that give mahogany Martins their signature tone. I like them for standard CGDA tuning (this one is strung for it) or "Chicago" DGBE tunings. A "low G uke" GCEA tuning is also nice and chimey, but I don't often like them for "Celtic" low GDAE tuning.
Years of Production: 1949 - 1963
