If you like your Martin Guitars light and woody, this Authentic 1931 00-18 is calling your name. The Authentics are painstakingly built by the Custom Shop using pre-War Martin methods and materials. Key among these is the use of hide glue and a T-Bar neck reinforcement in place of an adjustable truss rod. This necessitates a chunkier overall neck profile. That and the lack of a truss rod chamber adds sustain and improves tonal transmission throughout the length the of the guitar. This 00-18 is the next best thing to owning and original and comes with a much more reachable price
Condition on this 00 is excellent with no appreciable wear to body or frets. Neck is nice and straight and action is spot on.
