  • The 000-18 Modern Deluxe is a new take on Martin vintage, mixing classic Martin style with modern innovations. The look is unlike anything in Martin's production line to date with European flamed maple binding, stylish gold frets, gold open‐gear tuners, and a unique 1930s style script logo inlaid in pearl on the headstock.

    Vintage appointments include a Sitka spruce Vintage Tone System (VTS) top, a dovetail neck joint, and natural protein glue construction that give it the rich, fully aged Martin tone that has inspired generations. The ultra‐modern features include a titanium truss rod, Liquidmetal® bridge pins with red dots, and a carbon fiber bridgeplate that boosts volume without adding weight. The new neck shape is slightly skewed for maximum hand comfort up and down the fretboard. It is a remarkable guitar.
