For many guitarists, smaller-scaled guitars are easier and more comfortable to play. That certainly seems to be the case with the Martin 00-18V! This acoustic guitar has a smaller "00" body size, with a shorter 24.9" scale. The result of these features: warm, balanced sound. It's not as loud as the dreadnought models, but the 00-18V is great for flat-picking acoustic musicians. It sounds beautiful, and its looks match the part. The Martin 00-18V features solid Sitka Spruce on top, and Genuine mahogany on the back and sides. Great for the soloist on stage, or jamming in the living room, the 00-18V is an all-around great guitar.
