About This Listing

With the customers vision, the artists skill and using the finest materials, the Martin Custom shop always manages to create the perfect, tailor-made guitar. The attention to detail of these instruments is stunning, and the feeling of owning a Custom Made Martin guitar is simply irreplacable.

At first glance this guitar might seem like a "regular" 00018, but don't be fooled! This Custom Shop 00018 uses Sinker mahogany for the back and sides and combines that with a VTS treated Sitka spruce top creating an extremely mature, almost vintage sounding guitar. The full and balanced sounds lends itself extremely well for both fingerstyle and strumming. Another unique feature is the rear shifted scalloped X-brace instead of the usual standard. 

This is a very impressive guitar and with only some light traces of use so it is in excellent condition. It has gotten a neck reset in our workshop so it will offer an optimal playability for many years. Travels in the original hardshell case with TFOA passport.
