The modern 000-18 can be traced to 1934 when Martin altered the model from a 12- to 14-fret design. The 000-18 has remained in production ever since as one of Martin's most popular Auditorium-sized guitars. Like all 18-style Martins, the 000-18 uses a Mahogany body which, combined with its small body-size, makes it a great finger-picking guitar.
