What We Think

Just a flat out ideal fingerstyle instrument here, folks.  The slightly-softer-than-standard-Sitka Engelmann spruce offers just the right amount of additional sensitivity and complexity over and above your standard 18.  The frets are perfectly crowned, the setup is low, comfy, and intonating like a dream.  Bulletproof balladry awaits!


Conditon: Used, Excellent

Manufacturer's Description from Martin

The 00-18 is an updated version of the popular 00-18V. A Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides are the foundation for this classic grand concert model. A modified low oval high-performance neck, East Indian rosewood head plate and an ebony fingerboard and bridge complete this model and make it a guitar you will treasure for years to come.

About Manufacturer

For well over a century and a half, The Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world. The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.?s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker?s craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power. Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially evident today at Martin?s expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. The story behind one of America?s most famous guitars began on January 31, 1796, in Markneukirchen, Germany, with the birth of Christian Frederick Martin, Sr. Born into a long line of cabinet makers, Christian Frederick took up the family craft at the early age of 15, when he left his hometown and traveled to Vienna to apprentice with Johann Stauffer, a renowned guitar maker.
