Overview

Carrying a distinct vintage-inspired design and updated like the D-18 a few years ago, the redesigned 000-18 offers many of the features found in Martin's pre-war era guitars.

The 24.9" short scale model's neck features a modified low-oval profile with Performing Artist taper, with a width of 1-3/4" at the nut and 2-3/16" string spacing for easy playability. Nickel open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs are found with a rosewood headplate, which displays a large old style Martin logo. Includes case.

Great value for a martin

Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-18 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

Great guitar. I thought I would prefer the 28 but I really like the sound of the mahogany, and you save a few bucks.Great setup right out of the box. Excellent guitar for fingerstyle, blues, folk. Not as boomy and loud as a D style, but still projects really well for its size.

Everything I expected and more

Comments about Martin Standard Series 000-18 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this Martin online from GC, the delivery took place exactly as promised, and the guitar was in perfect shape when it arrived. Would have been nice to have a follow up phone call from GC to check on the delivery (Sweetwater does customer follow up much better). But can't complain that anything went wrong—it didn't. I've wanted a Martin forever and when I started playing again after many years away from playing regularly, I decided to take the plunge. Boy, am I glad I did. The 000-18 is a dream. Full and warm sound from the lows to the highs. And a Swiss Army knife of a guitar: just as good for finger picking as it is for flat picking. The redesign a few years ago that spaced the strings slightly farther apart really helps finger pickers. True that the volume is not quite at the dreadnought level, but the payback is a body style that is way more comfortable to play when you are seated. I really do think that dolllar for dollar this is the best value in the Martin Standard series. Really feels as if I have a vintage instrument in my hands, and I know that 5-7 years down the road, it will be even better. Kudos to the guys in Nazareth. They just keep making outstanding guitars. The 000-18 is worth every penny.
