Martin 000-18E Retro Acoustic Guitar

The 000-18E Retro is an addition to the Retro series. Its based upon a beautiful 1940 14-fret 000-18 "donor" guitar from the Martin Museum collection with a 24.9" short scale that produces clear and expressive response for stage or studio use. 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.

Retro Series

Martin's groundbreaking Retro Series represents the most significant advancement of our era in amplified acoustic sound, capturing the stylistic and sonic elements of iconic classic Martin guitars. The series will welcome two editions, the 000-18E and the D-35E, which will both enthrall guitarists with the seamless intersection of beautiful historical detail and Martin's unique forward-thinking technology.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "after sale satisfaction"
Overall: Wanted this guitar for over a year. When I couldn't strike a trade with the local shop I found one at Zzounds for the money I was willing to pay without giving up my dreadnought. I bought a "blemish" which turned out to be a return that had zero defects, except the first guy had strung it with steel strings. A simple call to Zz and they comped me a set of Martin Custom Lights like the guitar is supposed to ship with. The guitar is a dream to play and hear. It was delivered right on time though the three day anticipation almost did me in! It's the second time I've bought from Zz and it works like magic. Martin 000-18E Retro, Taylor 514C, Martin DGRT-16, Takamine beater, Fender Kingman and Jazz, more amps and other stuff than I care to list. Haven't had to use Martin Support. But have every confidence in them at this level. The guitar is the current envy of all my bandmates. It's not the cannon the dread is but suits my playing very well which is mostly finger style and accompanying singers
Style of Music: Rock, Country, Jazz, Western Swing, Delta blues and whatever I can follow along with!

Overall: what a great instrument...so well balanced...i was torn between d35 and this...ended up going with it because of the smaller size...don't let it fool u tho..this guitar is amazing...don't need all the low end of the 35...don't get me wrong...the 35 is amazing as well but for my live and recording needs this guitar shines at both...you have to plug this thing in to believe the sound...so pure and sweet...unplugged it is equally amazing...always wanted a high end martin for my studio...with this i got the best of both worlds...thanks zZounds..

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
