I have owned two Martin D-15Ms over the years, but ended up selling them due to money troubles. I wanted to add an all mahogany guitar to my collection, but couldn't afford another Martin. I bought the CLD-15M based purely from the feedback on the Thomann website.

When it arrived, I almost couldn't believe my eyes. It is so well made, not a flaw to be seen. The set-up was perfect- a nice low action with no buzz and full saddle height. Perfect frets. I would hazard a guess that the guitar has been through a PLEK machine, as it seems almost too good a set-up to have been done by human hands.

The neck is a very slim low profile. I would have preferred it to be slightly chunkier but at this price, I am not complaining. I assumed I would have to change the tuners to Grovers, as cheap guitars almost universally have terrible tuners. The tuners on this guitar are sturdy, smooth and tight. The nut and saddle are bone, so no upgrade needed there either.

The sound? Nice. NICE!! It has a lovely honey sweetness to it. Mellow, rich.

The biggest difference I found compared to a Martin is the weight. It's not a particularly heavy guitar, but the mahogany Martins are featherweight. For my purposes this is fine, as I wanted it to take out to sessions and busking. This guitar seems incredibly sturdy and well built. I'm confident that it can take a few knocks.

Before buying the CLD-15M, I was seriously considering the all mahogany Sigma guitars. I can't see how the Sigma could be any better than this. It doesn't sound as good as the Martin D-15M, but the Martin is ?1290, which is nearly 9 times the price of this guitar. It is not 9 times better in sound.

I am incredibly happy with my purchase and am seriously thinking about buying the CLA-28V when it is back in stock. I am also looking at a T.bone condenser mic, as it seems the own-branded Thomann products are sheer quality.

Guitars at this price should not sound this good!

This was a blind purchase out of sheer curiousity on my part. I watched a video on YouTube of the CLA (Grand Auditorium version of this) guitar and thought "wow, solid mahogany top for under 200 Euros? Count me in."

Yes, you read that right. A solid mahogany top with select mahogany back and sides. For under 200 Euros. That is unheard of. I impulsively bought the dreadnought version after reading up on the Harley Benton brand. Basically, it's Thomann's Chinese manufactured in-house brand. I eagerly expected its arrival.

Pulling it out of the cardboard box, I was immediately taken by the colour and finish. This is a weird word to use to describe a guitar, but it looked delicious - downright appetizing! I'm so used to the plasticy/laminated finishes hovering around this price range that the feeling of solid wood in my hands felt surreal at once. Then I played a chord.

The rich tone instantly filled the room. Wow. I strummed out a song and was flabbergasted. I have owned an all solid-wood guitar in the past (The Seagull S6, for 500 Euros) and this sounded better. The mahogany tone was beautiful, warm and like hot chocolate. Every song I played felt enhanced by its rich and spectacular tone.

This is a great strumming guitar. Take it anywhere and you'll get a lot of depth and volume from playing your songs. The action was by default set to a very comfortably low level. As previously stated, you can't beat this quality at this price - from any other guitar maker on this site.

Highly recommended. Thomann, I don't know how you managed this but I hope you're paying the manufacturers a decent wage!
