Used/mint 2017 Martin Custom Shop 00-18S w/hsc
Lovely Custom Shop 00-18S (12 fret, slot head) that combines vintage and modern specs into one great guitar. Solid mahogany back and sides, solid Sitka spruce top (exceptionally well quarter sawn, showing heavy medullary rays or “silking” in the grain, very straight and even grain), scalloped traditional X pattern top bracing, mahogany neck, ebony fret board with abalone dot position markers, and an ebony 'straight' bridge with vintage style long saddle slot. The body is bound in tortoise and the pickguard is tortoise as well. Open gear 'antique' finish tuners that are replicas of vintage Waverlys adorn the headstock. The neck width at the nut is 1 3/4” (rather than the more traditional 1 7/8” nut that was customarily used on vintage Martin 12 fretters) and the pin spacing is 2 3/16”. Has a strap button installed at the heel. The guitar plays easily, set up with action at 7/64” at the low E and 6/64” at the high E with plenty of saddle showing to lower the action if desired. The tone is crisp and woody with good projection and articulation. Comes with 500 series hard case. Ships to US only, no international shipping offered. Payment by check or money order, NY buyers add 8% sales tax. VFS #16206 $3199
