All of our Martin 000-18E Retro guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, in unplayed condition, and come with a Martin hardshell case and Martin's Lifetime Warranty.
Martin's groundbreaking Retro Series represents the most significant advancement of our era in amplified acoustic sound. Based upon a beautiful 1940 14-fret 000-18 "donor" guitar from the Martin Museum collection, the 000-18E Retro produces clear and expressive response for stage or studio use. Standing as the long awaited addition of short scale model to Martin's popular Retro line, the 000-18E may be the guitar that every acoustic blues guitarist looking for a stage worthy pickup system has been waiting for. With modern performance and playability, the 000-18E Retro offers the visual and tonal integrity of the mahogany auditorium guitars from the pre-war era.
Maury's Music thoroughly inspects every guitar before it ships. We can even set it up to your specs upon request! Simply choose between "Factory Setup" or "Custom Setup" when placing your order. Click here for more details.
