A Look at the Newly Redesigned Martin 000-18 Acoustic Guitar
CATEGORY: Product News

The 000 Martin is a classic design that dates back as far as 1902. Since then the 000 has gained major popularity, even though Martin sold very few of them in the first 20 years of its existence, the new Martin 000-18 can be seen in the hands of touring musicians, studio players, and enthusiasts across the globe. 

The Martin 000-18 Standard is a beautiful smaller bodied guitar that is constructed of Mahogany back and side and a spruce top. The size makes it comfortable to hold while still allowing for the projection you need to fill a room. 

Martin recently added some very distinct "pre-war" era features that make the redesigned 000-18 a guitar that not only looks great but plays like a dream. 

The redesign starts with an aging toned spruce top, to give a vintage appearance. That is paired with a tortoise pickguard and tortoise binding to finish off the look. 

From the first time you pick up the nww 000-18, you will notice how easy the neck is to play. This is due to the 24.9" short scale along with a modified low oval profile neck with Performing Artist taper. A 000-18 has never been this easy to play. 

Whether you have been playing Martin for years, or it has been a while since you have picked one up, you owe it to yourself to come try the new 000-18. You will be pleasantly surprised at the looks, tone, and playability.

You didn't mention that this new 000-18, like the new 00-18 and 0-18 has scalloped X braces which another nice feature . . . and a good selling point.
