Martin's newly redesigned 000-18 Acoustic Guitar harkens back to the legendary guitar maker's pre-war years, taking design cues that lend incredible style and sound to an already amazing acoustic guitar model. Featuring a classic construction of Sitka Spruce and Genuine Mahogany back and sides, the 000-18 boasts a slightly smaller 24.9" scale with a Performing Artist taper and Modified Low Oval neck shape for increased accessibility to complement its uncompromising tone.
Carrying a distinct vintage-inspired design and updated like the D-18 a few years ago, the redesigned 000-18 offers many of the features found in our pre-war era guitars. The 000-18, which has a beautiful aging toned top in Sitka spruce, is married with genuine mahogany back and sides. The body is edged with tortoise binding and complemented with a polished finish. The 24.9” short scale model’s neck features a modified low oval profile with Performing Artist taper, with a width of 1-3/4” at the nut and 2-5/32” string spacing for easy playability. Nickel open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs are found with a rosewood headplate, which displays a large old style Martin logo.
