Superb sounding small body Martin. A sweet picker if ever there was one and straight from the Martin Custom Shop...
Her is a Martin Custom Shop 00-18
This was ordered by My Favorite Guitars in Florida at a time when the standard 00-18 model had a ‘modified V’ neck that, although more in keeping with the original, many players found uncomfortable. As such this guar was ordered with a ‘modified low oval’ neck profile which is a much softer v and incorporates far more of the C profile into its design. This later became the standard.
Elsewhere, the guitar has a 24.9” scale length and a 1 3/4” nut, with the standard mahogany back and sides, sitka spruce top, ebony fretboard and faux tortoise binding. When the previous owner took delivery of the guitar the binding had separated slightly at the waist, which is a very common problem with Martins. It was sent to Dave King, Martin’s authorised warranty repairer in the UK, for repair and does not affect the look of the guitar.
This is a fantastic sounding guitar with incredible volume for such a small body - it really has to be heard to be believed. Overall, it’s a very comfortable guitar given the small body size and amenable neck shape. Comes with original Geib-style hard case.
