Reverb Estimated Used Price Range

  • $3,500$4,500

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. 

Years of Production: 1934 - present

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

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

Notable Players: Norman Blake, Woody Guthrie 

Note: Pictured example is from 1958.
