A Classic Martin, Revitalized for Modern Players

Martin’s 000-18 Modern Deluxe is a refreshing take on the classic auditorium body style, blending old-world style with modern refinements. Its Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top has been torrefied for maximum projection and harmonic excitement. The dovetail neck joint reinforces the classic Martin tone. And with its East Indian rosewood binding, gold frets, gold open-gear tuners, and unique 1930s-style logo on the headstock, the 000-18 Modern Deluxe looks unlike anything else from Martin’s production line. Complete with other modern advancements and a Vintage Deluxe neck shape designed for maximum comfort, there’s a lot to love about the Martin 000-18 Modern Deluxe acoustic guitar.

Comfortable Auditorium body style

The forward, balanced tone of the 000-18 comes from its Auditorium body style. This body style provides excellent projection and focus, perfect for competing with a banjo (which was a common combination in the ’30s). The Auditorium body style’s well-balanced tone also means the 000-18 is perfect for recording in your studio.

Vintage design with modern enhancements

The luthiers at Martin are happy to embrace modern enhancements if it means better tone for you, the player. In the Martin 000-18, you’ll find modern advancements such as a steel truss rod and Liquid Metal bridge pins, and the inclusion of a carbon fiber bridge plate boosts volume without adding weight. Even the neck shape has been refined for maximum playability and comfort. Many of us Martin fans at Citymusic are wary of changes to a winning recipe, but we’ve certainly embraced the sound of the Modern Deluxe’s improvements.

VTS top: aged to perfection

Martin has perfected the process of torrefying its top woods and bracings to achieve the sound of an aged, broken-in Martin. The Vintage Tone System (VTS) lets Martin age the woods to a specific age/time period without the typical change in color of the wood from the torrefaction process. A special vintage gloss finish is then hand applied to give the guitar the coloring of a vintage instrument. Martin’s guitars with VTS tops and bracing not only look like vintage guitars, but they also possess that sought-after sound.
