Martin Custom 0-18 Concert Quilted Mahogany

Truetone Music was invited to Nazareth, PA for a very special visit. We had the chance to spec out guitars to be custom built by Martin. We were also thrilled by the prospect of being able to hand select our own wood at the factory, aided by Custom Shop representatives and tonewood experts.  That began a relationship that has continued for multiple custom runs over a number of years.

We knew we wanted to represent an interesting variety as far as models and exotic woods, but we also wanted the guitars to sound as best they could, never sacrificing tone for bling. 

This Martin Custom Shop version of a 0-18 with Quilted Mahogany is a true example of that theory coming together in the best possible way.  You don't see many Custom Shop single 0 guitars, which is exactly why we did this one!  If you're a fan of small body acoustics, and want the best of the best, this is for you.  The look of the guitar itself would be enough, but the materials, construction and appointments make it all the more special.   

The stunning hand-selected Quilted Mahogany is what draws your eyes at first, but as beautiful as it is, this wasn't done just for aesthetics. Mahogany is one of the most popular tone woods used on acoustic guitars.  The warmth provided by this wood is a great complement to the precise attack of a 0 guitar - making this one perfect for strumming as well as fingerpicking.  It's a "best of both worlds" scenario.  And, this particular spread of Quilted Mahogany was hand-selected at the Custom Shop.  Not only does it look spectacular, but the experts there chose it for how it would sound - deep, warm and round, with strong sustain.  The Sitka Spruce top resonates and sings sweetly, providing excellent note definition.

We chose to keep the rest of the specs simple, as the focus is on how the guitar sounds and feels.  The neck is Martin’s popular modified low oval with high performance taper, making it very comfortable to play for hours. The radius is 16” with a nut width of 1 3/4”.  The guitar is finished in gloss with a satin finished neck.  It comes with a Martin hard shell case and certificate of authenticity.
