Martin Guitar's 0-18 acoustic guitar brings together decades of luthiery experience with premium materials to achieve a tone that's as rich as it is balanced. The 0-18 has a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides in a concert body size that's compact yet full-sounding. Its modified low-oval neck and 1.75" nut width make complex chords and melodic runs easily accessible.

Scallop Bracing Releases the 0-18's Natural Voice

The 0-18's scalloped "X" bracing allows its solid spruce top to resonate freely, producing notes that bloom with harmonic richness and clarity. Chords ring out with a balance of lows and highs that flatters vocals or blends well in an ensemble. Single notes have a rounded warmth and definition that encourages expressive playing.

Time-Tested Tonewoods for a Lifetime of Music

Solid spruce and mahogany have been used for generations to craft acoustic guitars with enduring tone and beauty. The 0-18's solid spruce top will mature over years of playing, opening up to reveal deeper bass and more complex highs. Its mahogany back and sides provide a stable foundation for the top's vibration, with a midrange focus that gives chords and melodies a natural presence.

A Neck Designed for Comfort and Playability

The 0-18's modified low-oval neck has a slim, fast profile with a 1.75" nut width, ideal for guitarists with smaller hands or those who prefer an unobtrusive neck. Its shorter 24.9" scale makes higher frets more accessible. An ebony fretboard offers a smooth playing surface, while open-geared nickel tuners provide precise and stable tuning.

Premium Appointments and Lasting Value

From its dovetail neck joint to its ebony bridge and fretboard, the 0-18 is crafted with care using time-honored techniques and premium materials. It includes a hardshell case for protection and comes with Martin's limited lifetime warranty. The 0-18 delivers the tone, comfort and craftsmanship of Martin's most revered guitars in an instrument you'll enjoy for life.
