A comfortable size with solid tonewoods and tasteful appointments.
Martin 000-18 Auditorium
The 000-18 is a true traditional 000 with a shorter 24.9" scale and appointments that match Martins D-18 Dreadnought. The shorter scale length yields a lighter, more delicate feel to the strings.
Everyone from Eric Clapton to Sting to Johnny Lang has played a Martin guitar, and professionals and amateurs alike know the bright sparkle and deep, resonant tone that Martin guitars have become famous for, from the most high end acoustics to the Backpacker.
Carefully hand-selected tonewoods, master craftsmanship and beautiful finishes and styles make Martin acoustics a class all their own, and must be played to be believed. Martin sets the standard for acoustic guitars, and since 1833 has been a leader in guitar innovation and craftsmanship.
