Solid Sitka Spruce Top & Genuine Mahogany Body
The Martin 00-18 features a stunning solid sitka spruce top that offers a broad dynamic range, versatility, and crisp articulation, and accommodates numerous playing techniques. The wood itself is quite elastic in nature, which resonates well whilst remaining strong, and provides a focused, clear sound of deep lows, warm midi-range, and bright singing highs. The sitka spruce top is contrasted beautifully by its mahogany body, which provides durability and delivers incredibly rich distinct warmth. Mahogany is used a lot in the acoustic world, because it is relatively economical, durable, attractive, easy to work with, and resonant. Used as back and sides panels, mahogany provides a meaty mid-range, producing punchy, woody tones with plenty of depth and complexity that will please most playing styles.
Select Hardwood Neck & Ebony Fingerboard
The select hardwood neck features a modified low oval shape and a high performance taper for enhanced playability. The neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard that provides a bright attack, great sustain, and excellent durability. The ebony fingerboard and bridge also apply clarity and well defined punch, providing you with iconic Martin tone blended with a satin finish for a smooth playability. Abalone dot inlays grace the fingerboard for added elegance and a sprinkle of Martin creativity.
Martin Playability Enhanced
For 183 years, Martin have been at the forefront of guitar innovation and premier craftsmanship, bringing consumers some of the best acoustic guitars possible. The iconic Martin tone is known worldwide and playability has become an important characteristic that sets Martin guitars aside from others within the acoustic world. Martin's manufacturing processes have been perfected by their Plek machines, the Pleking process helps Martin guitars maintain their undeniable tone.
The Plek Pro has been developed for use in guitar production factories as a tool that not only does precise fingerboard dressing, but also helps with quality control. The computer controlled device scans and dresses the guitar under actual playing conditions, strung and tuned to pitch for using precise string tension emulation. This machine has been a major break through over the last decade, as its eye for detail identifies exactly what needs to be done for perfect fretwork. The Plek Pro delivers you with perfect results, raises the quality of the instrument, and gives you a beautifully toned, easy to play acoustic guitar.
