With a rich history beginning shortly after the turn of the century in 1911, it’s no wonder why the Martin 000-18 has become known as a timeless classic. As it stands, it is also one of the most affordable guitars in the Standard Series (barring the D-18 w/ High Performance Neck). Built on the foundation of great sounding guitars that Martin has been developing for over 100 years, the 000-18’s pairing of integrity and tone position it near the top of the acoustic list in terms of value. This model boasts some tried and true design aspects that will likely never change and a few modern improvements to insure your guitar will last a lifetime. This is a classic sounding Martin with excellent note definition and a very clear midrange. While its thinner body profile provides comfortable playing, its shorter scale (24.9”) has a slightly softer string action that lends credence to more articulate techniques like fingerstyle but also creates ample projection and stability for strumming. This is a brand new guitar that ships with a 600 series molded hard case and limited lifetime warranty.

The Standard Series is really the foundation of the entire line of Martin guitars. Historically, every instrument that is built today has evolved, in some degree, from these classic Martin designs.
