Introduced in 1898, the 0-18 is the smallest offering in Martin's Standard Series. But don't let its small size fool you—this 0-18 has a punchy, present voice with nice projection, and at a mere 13.5" across on the lower bout, its small size is extremely manageable and comfortable. This may be the ultimate couch guitar, but its balanced tone and direct, focused projection make it an excellent all-purpose guitar, especially for someone wanting to get away from the traditional dreadnought tone profile. We love the combination of short-scale subtlety in the response with punchy dynamics from the small sound board. The 0-18 is a guitar you'll want to play every day, and with such a comfortable body size, it will be a hard one to put down.

This 2019 Martin 0-18 in excellent condition, showing only minimal signs of play and use (see photos). The original owner installed a K&K Pure Mini pickup as well as a strap button on the neck heel. Its setup is perfect, and its frets are fresh and ready for years of digging in. This is a fantastic-sounding small body guitar with impressive bass response considering its size. It's hard not to like its approachable body size, but with tone to back it up, this 0-18 is the real deal. Original hardshell case included.
