Overview
The SC-18E acoustic-electric guitar from Martin Guitars pairs modern playability with timeless style and full, balanced tone. This gloss-finished guitar features a solid spruce top, and East Indian rosewood back and sides for the deep bass response, richness and projection Martin is known for. With its comfortable neck profile and smooth satin finish, the SC-18E's patented Sure Align neck system allows easy playing all the way up the fingerboard. Timeless appointments like antique white binding and nickel open-gear tuners give the SC-18E a classic look.

Shape Your Sound With Onboard L.R. Baggs Anthem Electronics

The SC-18E comes equipped with L.R. Baggs Anthem electronics, giving you control over your amplified tone. The volume, EQ and body blend knobs are intuitively placed and easy to adjust. Turn up the EQ knob for more air and punch in the mids, or roll it off for a more neutral, natural tone. The body blend knob mixes the soundboard's vibration with the drop-in-saddle pickup—turn it up for a robust, dynamic amplified sound or down for more crispness and cut.

Full, Balanced Tone With Resonant Spruce and Rosewood

This acoustic-electric features a solid spruce top, and East Indian rosewood back and sides for the balanced tone Martin is renowned for. The spruce produces articulate highs with complex overtones, while the rosewood adds a deep, projecting low end and richness. Together, they create a versatile tone that works well for any style, from strumming chords to fingerpicking melodies. The gloss finish accentuates the rosewood's natural beauty. An internal soundboard recurve boosts the bass response even further.

Comfortable Low Profile Neck for All-Over Playability

The SC-18E's Sure Align neck system utilizes patented mortise and tenon joints for a strong, stable neck-to-body connection. This allows the neck to be crafted with an ergonomic low profile and high-performance taper for comfort. Combined with the smooth satin finish, these features make playing anywhere on the neck effortless. The slim neck profile is perfect for smaller hands or long practice sessions. The SC-18E also has a slimmer 1-3/4" nut width compared to many traditional acoustics—another plus for comfortable fretting.

Timeless Looks With Antique White Binding

With its gloss top, satin neck and antique white binding, the SC-18E has a refined, timeless look. It's appointed with open-gear tuners with nickel hardware, a multi-stripe rosette and tortoise pickguard. The fingerboard and bridge are crafted from rich ebony, and the headstock features Martin's signature script logo. It includes a sturdy hardshell case for safe transport and storage.
