2015 Martin Custom Shop 0-18 – £1999
NEW ARRIVAL In 2015, the Martin Custom Shop built a small batch of 0-sized, 12 fret guitars featuring Sipo back and sides. Sipo is from the Mahogany family, with similar tonality, but more figured. Combined with the Sitka Spruce top and Grover open back tuners, the style is classic but simple, and the Custom Shop quality shines through. It’s small enough to be very comfortable to play, yet big enough to have a voice with presence. The guitar has amazing projection and clarity. While it’s great for strumming this guitar really comes into its own when finger picking. The tone is bright and rich with plenty of character however hard or soft you play. It would make the perfect studio guitar, great for close mic-ing, beautifully balanced with great definition. The guitar is in excellent condition, has an active LR Baggs Lyric pickup fitted, and comes in it’s original deluxe hard case.
