Martin, C.F.: 00-18V LH

(Item ID: 00-18V LH    Serial#: 1879512)

Martin, C.F. 00-18V LH Left-Handed 00-18V with Genuine Mahogany and Spruce and K&K Pure Mini Pickup

Structural features found in the Vintage Series Martin guitars have made them, arguably, the very best guitars for the money that Martin produces, especially, if sound quality is what matters most. By revisiting the design characteristics of their coveted pre-war instruments, the splendid voice that marks their reputation has been re-born. And, with the exceptional modern build quality, these guitars will survive to become classics in their own right.

Three important structural features distinguish this Vintage model. The 00-18V has a fuller, modified V-shaped neck, thinner 1/4" scalloped tone bars, and a forward shifted "X" brace. The scalloped top braces and forward shifted "X" both serve to relax the top in a way that opens up the instruments voice yielding a deeper bass, a more broad mid range, and a loose, free, clear treble. And the more substantial V-shaped neck seems to help anchor the foundation of the sound, perhaps by keeping more vibrational energy in the sound box. Martins use of these design features has imbued the modern 00-18V with tonal attributes for which the older, classic originals are revered - strength, depth, body, balance, and clarity.

This guitar was purchased new from us in 2015 by one of our longtime customers who has developed a growing passion for fine instruments in recent years, and, as he plays left-handed, and as our inventory of left-handed instruments is very limited, he has special ordered many instruments that have attracted his interest. And from time to time he will trade in one of his instruments to help fund a new acquisition - this splendid 00-18V "lefty" is one such example. Like all of his guitars, this instrument has been meticulously maintained and is in superb condition, both cosmetically and structurally. Thus, its look, feel, and sound are pristine.

This guitar includes a deluxe Cedar Creek archtop hardshell case. (used)
