1934 Martin 000-18 - Natural
This 000-18 has been restored by Joel Whitehead of Whitehead Guitar Repair - also known as the guitar technician of Norms Rare Guitars - who is famous for his vintage Martin conversions. The neck is an original 1934 Martin 000-18 neck and the body has been handcrafted by Joel. The neck feels just perfect, just like an old golden era Martin neck. The guitar is very loud and resonant - sounds very very good!
