Another great example of Martin's post-war work, this 1955 000-18 reminds you why Julian Lage calls these old mahogany 000s and OMs "honest". There's nothing over the top or distractingly complex about this guitar's voice, but it has a well-earned dark edge to its otherwise focused, woody sound, with dry bite. Reach out to Kim for further repair history and an in-hand description!
