OVERVIEW

Takes a classic Martin body shape and adds the element of amplification for a wonderful mix of sight and sound.

Martin's groundbreaking Retro Series represents the most significant advancement of our era in amplified acoustic sound. Based upon a beautiful 1940 14-fret 000-18 "donor" guitar from the Martin Museum collection, this 24.9" short-scale model produces clear and expressive response for stage or studio use. It features a solid Sitka spruce with solid genuine mahogany back and sides, scalloped "X" top bracing, and solid black ebony fingerboard with an Old Style 18 rosette and (green abalone)Boltaron fingerboard inlays. Other appointments include a modified low oval profile neck with Performance Artist taper, Grover nickel V97-18NA Sta Tite tuning machines, a 1930s style belly with drop-in saddle bridge style, a Delmar Tortoise pickguard, and dovetail neck joint.

With modern performance and playability, the 000-18E Retro offers the visual and tonal integrity of the mahogany auditorium guitars of the pre-war era.

Includes 433 hardshell case.
