Dead Mint Condition
The Martin MC-18 Woody Mann Custom Edition starts with the M body style, which combines Grand Auditorium 16" width at the lower bout with 000 4 1/8" depth for a big, clear voice. The combination of an Adirondack spruce top and scalloped, forward-shifted 1/4" top braces and make for a guitar that has serious volume with great warmth and excellent dynamic range. The bone nut and saddle make for a clean articulate sound with great definition.
But the feature that really sets the MC-18 Woody Mann Custom Edition apart is its oversized 4 5/16" soundhole. The oversized soundhole enhances mid-range and treble projection. The MC-18 Woody Mann is the first Martin Custom Edition guitar in this body style to include this feature.
A 1 3/4" width low profile satin finish neck offers both playing comfort and plenty of room on the fingerboard for finger style players.
Woody specified beautiful, understated appointments for his Custom Edition guitar. An Old Style 18 wood fiber rosette with two (due to the enlarged soundhole) rings complements East Indian rosewood binding and alternating black/white fine line (five on the top and three on the back) purfling. The binding is matched by an East Indian rosewood heelcap and endpiece, the latter framed by black/white fine line inlay. A polished gloss Madagascar rosewood headplate highlights the familiar Martin Old Style decal logo and premium nickel Waverly™ tuners with ebony buttons. The fingerboard is devoid of position markers, except of course for white side position dots in the standard locations. Aging toner gives the top vintage patina that is accentuated by Martin's polished gloss lacquer finish on the body. In the fingerstyle tradition, the MC-18 Woody Mann Custom Edition comes without a pickguard.
The special, initial-bordered interior label personally signed by Woody Mann and numbered in sequence.
This is a truly special guitar suitable for any style of play, but is especially great for the most demanding of fingerstlye guitarists.
