Through extensive sonic imaging of existing vintage Martin acoustic guitars and through the utilization of groundbreaking Fishman electronics, the C.F. Martin Retro Series instruments represent a captivating mixture of classic and contemporary.
Crafted in the image of a 1940 14-fret 000-18, the 000-18E Retro blends pre-war era 'Style 18' appointments and vintage Martin tone with modern playability and peerless plugged-in performance. For amazing clarity and expression, the '000' auditorium body pairs solid genuine mahogany with a solid Sitka spruce soundboard that's supported by thinner 1/4" scalloped "X" bracing. This 000-18E Retro has surprising volume for its size and is a must-have for fingerstyle players and vintage Martin enthusiasts. The cozy modified low oval select hardwood neck offers enhanced playability thanks to Martin's modern, ergonomic High Performance taper and precise PLEK setup. The specially-voiced revolutionary Fishman F1 Aura Plus electronics faithfully conveys the beautiful vintage sound of its 70+ year old "tone donor" when you plug it in. Finally, the Martin 000-18E Retro comes with the full protection of a hardshell case.
