Rating and Reviews: Martin 000-18E Retro

Based off a vintage acoustic straight from Martin's museum, the 000-18E Retro has a timeless look that's modernized with the addition of Fishman electronics.

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

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.
