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 00-18. 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 00-18 will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
Modified low-oval neck for smooth playability
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 00-18 acoustic guitar. The 00-18 features a modified low-oval neck profile with a High Performance 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.
Super-comfortable Grand Concert body style provides excellent tonal balance
Arguably one of the most comfortable body styles for acoustic guitars, the Martin 00-18 has a smaller than average Grand Concert shape. It’s the perfect fit when you’re looking for a more manageable instrument than larger body styles offer. It also means the 00-18 is a particularly good fit if you’re a fingerstyle player.
