that just shows the Martin 00-15 and the 000-15.

whats the difference between the two body sizes/shapes?
what influence does this have on the sound?

this coming from a post i had about finding a $1500 guitar at goodwill for $35. the guy who posted said he had a fg-150 and i found a 140. he said mine was a 000 which was a full size and I guess his was a 00 which is smaller than full size. i have no idea how it affects he sound (maybe not as loud).

The OO has a smaller body than the OOO. The smaller body means less bass and less volume but more cut, and more trebble.

No, yours (the 140) is pretty much a dreadnought shape, but in the usual Yamaha style. Mine (the 150) is similar to a OOO, but it is not the same (the lower bout on mine is more rounded than that). Sorry for the confusion.

What about the O-shape?

^ Weren't they Parlours?

EDIT: No they weren't, but they were a similar size and had 12 fret neck joins I think.

I thought it had to do with scale length? Not necessarily the size of the guitar body itself? Or maybe I'm thinking the difference between OM and OOO

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

Guitar Body Sizes (CF Martin)

Cheers!

Edit… sorry, the original question was about sound. Well, I auditioned an OO-18V against an OM-18V (same size as OOO) a couple of years ago and the difference in loudness was small but noticible. But the OO was also shorter scale, so that will have also contributed. I bought the OM.

Yeah, that was OOO and OM. The OOO used to have a short scale, but now Martin is putting the OOO lable on guitars with a 25.4 scale which makes them exactly the same as an OM.
