Part of Martin’s Marquis Collection, the Martin 00-18V Acoustic Guitar offers a grand concert body made with solid tonewoods, alongside vintage appointments. Encompassing a solid Sitka spruce top and solid genuine mahogany back & sides, the Martin 00-18V Guitar’s grand concert body is loud and precise. The Sitka spruce top offers much in the way of projection and clear, articulate tone, while the mahogany pushes levels further along with enhancing the mid range. The Martin 00-18V has also been strengthened with the use of a standard ''X'' scalloped pattern and 1/4'' solid Sitka spruce bracing. With innovative, choice appointments like these, it's no wonder that the Martin 00-18V is one of the brand's best sellers.
Along with sounding great and being structurally sound, the Martin 00-18V Acoustic Guitar also looks the business with the top, back & sides finished in polished gloss, a brown tortoise colour body biding, and a bevelled & polished tortoise colour pickguard.
Joined to the body of the Martin 0018V Acoustic Guitar via a dovetail joint is a select hardwood neck carved to a modified V profile. Atop this lies a 20-fret, solid black ebony fingerboard with a nut width of 1-3/4'' widening to 2-1/4'' at the twelfth fret. The fingerboard offers a smooth playing surface and is easy to play on. This lies between a solid black ebony bridge and a bone nut.
Above the Martin 00-18V Guitar’s neck is a solid, square taper headstock with a large, old style solid East Indian Rosewood headplate. The headstock is equipped with a set of Gotoh nickel open-geared tuners with butterbean knobs.
Despite its smaller body, this vintage-style acoustic offers brilliant clarity and articulation while also feeling really comfortable to play.
The Martin 00-18V Acoustic Guitar comes supplied with a 534 Geib style hardcase for added protection.
