It features a solid Sitka spruce with solid genuine mahogany back and sides, scalloped "X" top bracing, and solid black ebony fingerboard with an Old Style 18 rosette and (green abalone)Boltaron fingerboard inlays. Other appointments include a modified low oval profile neck with Performance Artist taper, Grover nickel V97-18NA Sta Tite tuning machines, a 1930s style belly with drop-in saddle bridge style, a Delmar Tortoise pickguard, and dovetail neck joint.

Comments about Martin Retro Series 000-18E Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I work as a professional musician and I recently took the plunge and bought this guitar. I was a little apprehensive, mainly because I hadn't had the option to try one out before I bought it. I watched some youtube videos and read some reviews instead. Since it has arrived I have found it hard to put it down. I first tried it through a Fishman acoustic amp that I use for small gigs and this guitar sounds great through it. In fact it sounds great through anything! This guitar is well suited to fingerstyle playing. Considering its size it's a big sounding guitar and musically, very sweet and lush! What more can I say? It's just great!
