  • Anthem/Anthem SL in Martin 000-15m

    I am interested in purchasing an Anthem system for my Martin 000-15m. However I'm afraid that with the A-Frame "X" Bracing, the preamp for the Anthem will not fit since the A-Frame brace around the sound hole is taller than a typical brace. Will it fit at all?
    Also, if it does not fit, will the Anthem SL be better for this guitar and fit properly? Thank you.

    Do you know how tall the A-frame brace is on the bass side of the soundhole? I've seen 000 Martins that have a variety of brace heights, even from within the same model. So it really depends on your specific guitar.

    I've never seen a guitar where the Anthem SL wouldn't fit, but there are more common guitars that the regular Anthem preamp has a difficult time with.

      I have a Martin 000-15M streetmaster & was recommended to buy an Anthem for it as the best pickup. I've done this. Looking inside the sound hole I don't think it will fit. Has anyone installed one on a 000-15M here? Any help would really be appreciated.

        I know that the Anthem fits the standard 000-15M without any issues, but I'm not sure about the Streetmaster. If the bracing inside the soundhole is just slightly too tall for the Anthem preamp, doubling or tripling the adhesive can be enough to get over that bracing in many cases.

          The anthem does not fit in the 000-15M (streetmaster) without shaving a good chunk of the bracing. I just bought one & went to install..... Nope - no go.
          You'll have to install the small Anthem SL. Unless you want to get the dremel out with a grinding attachment on & remove 50% of the sound hole brace...

            Thanks for letting me know. I've added that guitar to my list of incompatible guitars for future reference.
