The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Martin 018 Standard Steel String Guitar Natural

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

The Martin 018 Standard is a wonderful addition to the standard series from Martin guitars. This parlor sized body features a Sitka spruce top and mahogany sides and back. The small body shape is extremely comfortable to sit with and compact lower bout width helps to decrease strumming arm fatigue. The mahogany neck has a shorter 24.9” scale length and low oval profile to add to the comfortable playing experience.

The combination of Sitka spruce and mahogany tone woods on the Martin 018 Standard produces a warm and balanced tone with plenty of midrange and top end sparkle.

If you’re in the market for a beautiful sounding compact guitar then the Martin 018 should fit the bill.
