2012 Martin 0018V – £2199
NEW ARRIVAL From Martin’s Vintage Series – this is an 00 size guitar with a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany back and sides. It’s scallop braced, with tortoiseshell binding, Ebony fretboard and bridge, plus bone nut and saddle, vintage style open-geared tuners, and aged toner on top. All of these appointments are signs of real quality, and the Martin Vintage Series are very accurate reproductions of their historical predecessors. 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 excellent condition and is a dream to play. It comes in it’s original deluxe Martin hard case.
