The 0-18 from Martin Guitar Company is a small bodied beauty with a surprisingly big and bold tone. Lots of players are clamoring for the perfect couch guitar: something they can spend hours seated with, without the fatigue that sets in from playing bigger bodied guitars. Sitka Spruce teamed with mahogany back and sides provide classic tones in a comfortable frame. Never boomy or bass heavy, this is a well balanced guitar perfectly suited to the singer/songwriter. It features 24.9" scale for a little more slinky feel on the strings and allows for hours of uninterrupted play. A fingerpicker's dream, this guitar does the whispery thing amazingly well. If you have a light tough and like a warm sound with a touch of sparkle on the top end, this little beast is worth investigating.
A modified Low Oval Neck Profile and High Performance Taper come together for one of, if not the most playable guitar to ever come from Martin! The taper is not quite as drastic which keeps the depth of the neck a bit more uniform. Allowing for easy feeling bar chords up and down the fretboard. Even solo's are easier than on some other models without this neck taper. The neck is then topped with an Ebony Fingerboard and cut to 1.75" Nut Width for a slightly wider feel than what many consider traditional. If you find some acoustics cramped in terms of string spacing, this instrument may feel perfect. Other notable features include an Ebony Bridge, Scalloped Braces, Abalone Fingerboard Inlays, and Butterbean Tuners in Nickel.
