2003 Martin 00-18V – £2299
NEW ARRIVAL From Martin’s highly acclaimed Vintage series, this 00-18V is a real looker. It features a Sitka Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, has scalloped bracing, an Ebony fretboard and bridge, plus bone nut and saddle, and vintage style Waverley open-geared tuners. All of these appointments are signs of real quality, and the fit and finish are excellent. Tonally it’s fantastic, the Sitka spruce has a wide tonal range with great projection making it hugely versatile, capable of both bright and punchy tones, yet quite complex and able to handle the most subtle of playing styles. The guitar’s in very good condition, with one wear patch on the back, and is a dream to play. It has a K and K pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original deluxe Martin hard case.
