Martin 00-18 from 1976 – it really is a good one, with a crisp and bold vintage sound.
Martin guitars always have this kind of magic. Built in Nazereth Pennsylvania this guitars have been the standard for acoustic guitars ever since.
The 00-model (or concert-size-model) has beautiful mahogany sides and back and a very nice spruce top. The guitars of theses period are of the finest of what Martin has produced in all of these years … and that says something with the quality that they have put out over the last 100+ years.
This Martin 00-18 1976 is in a very nice vintage shape. Very clean and well taken care of. There is a small repair and the guitar has received a refret.
It plays very nicely, with a low action and a straight neck.
It is one of the most articulate, mature mahogany guitars we’ve owned – just amazing. Rich and deep … with this cool vintage tone. The whole construction and the matured woods create this most haunting voice that can’t be described with any degree of accuracy.
This is one of those: to play it is to want to own it !! guitars.
It comes with a vintage, but non original case.
