Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $2,395$3,450

Built in Martin's Nazareth, PA workshop, the 0-18 was smaller than the 00-18 and the 000-18, but larger than earlier parlor-style guitars. Like other 18 series Martins, the 0-18 is defined by a Mahogany body (starting in 1917), Spruce top, and minimimal cosmetic flourishes. Also like many classic Martins, the design of the 0-18 changed little from the World War II era until production ended in the mid-'90s. 

Years of Production: 
1898 - 1996

Unique to this Year: Martin bracing changes from scalloped to heavier non-scalloped. 

Wood Composition: Mahogany back and sides, Spruce top, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard

Design Elements: Tortoiseshell pickguard, unbound fingerboard, 14-frets (clear of body)

Note: Pictured example is from 1944.
