Martin 000-18 Auditorium Acoustic
Martin Product Overview
Redesigned for 2014, the Martin 000-18 remains one of the most popular small bodied Martin models. This fantastic vintage inspired classic now features an aged Sitka Spruce top, paired with a beautiful Mahogany back and sides. The result is a wonderfully balanced guitar suited perfectly to finger-style and light strumming.
The Martin 000-18 is constructed using 'Standard X Scalloped' bracing and the scale length is a short 24.9". The neck has a fantastically comfortable low oval profile with a 'Performing Artist' taper which is 1-3/4" width at the nut and has a 2-3/16" string spacing at the bridge, making this a perfect guitar for complex finger picking.
Aesthetically, the Martin 000-18 features Tortoise Shell binding and open gear vintage tuners with butterbean knobs. The Headstock is faced with a Rosewood veneer and has the classic, large 'Old Style' Martin logo. If you are looking for a small bodied guitar with a great vintage feel and tone, the Martin 000-18 is the guitar for you!
Includes a fitted Martin Hardcase.
