The Martin 000-18 offers the focused tone of mahogany and spruce with the projection of a small body. If you want a small-bodied guitar that can really cut thru the mix and is the perfect compliment for the singer-songwriter, the 00018 is it!
The 000 body style is a favorite of those who spend a lot of time sitting while playing. Its thinner body isn't quite as ergonomically cumbersome as a dreadnaught, nor does your strumming shoulder feel the same strain it can with thicker guitars. Don't be fooled by its size though, this guitar produces a LOT of sound, more than one would expect!
The player-friendly Performing Artist Neck Profile and High-Performance Tapers combine for perhaps the most playable Martin neck that there is. The neck is made from select hardwood and then topped with an Ebony Fingerboard and Abalone Old Style 18 Inlays. A slightly shorter scale of 24.9" allows for less string tension and softens the strings for the fingers of the left hand. Nut width of 1.75" and a bone nut combine for a familiar feel and sound.
Genuine Mahogany Back and Sides have proved to be a time tested classic when it comes to guitar tones. Making its way onto thousands of recordings over the last century, the team of Spruce and Mahogany is the choice for many who use the guitar to accompany their voice.
