About This Listing

I bought this a number of years ago from a man who didn’t know much about it. I believe it might have been left next to a heat source and that’s where the blemishes on the sides (and smaller ones on the back) may have came from.
The guitar spent a number of quarantine months at the C.F. Martin shop in Nazareth where it had the following repairs done: Glue cracks, Glue loose back braces, Re-glue loose bridge with touchup, Build up bridge, Build up fingerboard, Face off regular frets, Reset the neck, Shim neck nut, New Grover Tuners. Work completed end of July of 2021. *Full receipt of work is available.
Martin did an excellent job with the repairs and set-up, it plays beautifully with a low and easy action. The invoice was $1900 before the Martin Owners Club discount (see final page of the Martin invoice in pictures).
The top is absolutely beautiful with a golden patina that comes from it’s 60 years. It is capable of sounding quite robust, when used with a pick it can get can punch out the sound.
The 0-18 is smaller than the 00-18 and the 000-18. Like the other Martin 18 series it has a mahogany body and spruce top. Original years of production were 1889 to 1996. Reintroduced as part of the Martin Standard Series in 2017.
By today’s standards, the Martin 0-18 might strike you as a modest guitar. But it was a commanding instrument when it was introduced in 1898, dwarfing the company’s parlor guitars in terms of size.
Like the majority of other Martin guitars, the 0-18 evolved from a 12-fret gut-string model to a 14-fret steel-string by the mid-1930s. For many years, the 0-18 remained a fixture in Martin’s catalog, and in the 1950s it was among the company’s hottest offerings, selling nearly as well as the D-28 dreadnought thanks to an agreeable price tag. Some formidable guitarists—Bob Dylan and Steve Earle, to name just two—would make good use of the 0-18’s balanced voice.

*A link to the complete detailed Martin invoice and a sound video is available upon request.
