Martin 000-18 Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
- Comfortable Auditorium body style
- Modern feel and playability from the Performing Artist neck taper
- Timeless combination of mahogany and spruce
Comfortable Auditorium body style
The forward, balanced tone of the 000-18 comes from its Auditorium body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for competing with a banjo (which was a common combination in the '30s). The Auditorium body style also gives you well-balanced tone, making the 000-18 perfect for recording in your studio.
Modern feel and playability from the Performing Artist neck taper
Whether you need to survive long recording sessions or plan to play out late into the night, you'll be glad you got a Martin 000-18 acoustic guitar. The 000-18 features a modified low-oval neck profile with the Performing Artist taper. Its slim profile is easy on your hand, allowing you to play those extended sessions in comfort. The shorter 24.9" scale length makes complex chord voicings easier to reach. And the smooth-playing ebony fretboard is comfortable and finished to perfection.
Timeless combination of mahogany and spruce
Classic Martin guitars throughout history have used spruce tops and solid mahogany backs and sides to create enchanting tone, and you'll find the same premium tonewood combination on the Martin 000-18. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid Sitka spruce has a wide tonal range with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your 000-18 will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
