Overview

Martin's groundbreaking Retro Series represents the most significant advancement of their era in amplified acoustic sound. Based upon a beautiful 1940 14-fret 000-18 "donor" guitar from the Martin Museum collection, the 24.9 in. short scale Retro Series 000-18E Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar produces clear and expressive response for stage or studio use. With modern performance and playability, the Retro Series 000-18E Auditorium offers the visual and tonal integrity of the genuine mahogany auditorium guitars from the pre-war era. Fishman F1 Aura+ electronics takes your performances to a whole new, modern level.

Fishman F1 Aura+ Electronics

This state-of-the-art system features the stunning realism of award-winning Aura Acoustic Imaging technology in a distinctive and easy to use onboard preamp system. The heart of this onboard intelligence is its ability to replicate the sound of nine different world-class studio microphones. Delivered in an intuitive menu driven interface that is very versatile with controls placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing. Controlled with two low-profile control buttons and a single large, bright LED display. Placed in perfect position for total ease of operation while performing.

The F1 Aura+ now offers a simplified set of user controls called Easy Mode. This mode allows you to quickly get a feel for the tonal possibilities of F1 Aura+ while providing quick access to the most important features you’ll need every day. Simply press the Tone control to step through three custom-blended Aura Image presets as well as audition the unaffected, Gold Plus pickup sound. The one-knob Tone control blends between a natural, undersaddle sound with no EQ (flat) on up to a "scooped" tone with emphasized treble and bass and reduced midrange.
