Weird thing about 15's and 16's is that if you get one you may never desire a 28.
I play acoustic the most and I always thought.....by the time I'm 55 I should have a D28 and now I think......."Meh.....why?.....what I have it so nice."
15's are honest guitars.
Congrats to the OP. I like the "10 minutes....turned into 2 hours," that's what it's all about.
I got my 000 15M last year and love it. When I saw the butterbean tuners and snowflake inlays, I had to have one.
And my first big purchase guitar was a D16R in 2007. If I knew about Martin models like a do now, I probably would have shelled out more and got the D28, but back then the D16R sounded the best in the shop that day (and I'm certain there was a D28 because I played one about $500 more that looked the same to my untrained eye) so that's what I went home with!
The D16R and my 000 15M are my Martin keepers unless a real bargain fell in my lap.
