RETRO SERIES: Martin’s groundbreaking Retro Series represents the most significant advancement of our era in amplified acoustic sound, capturing the stylistic and sonic elements of iconic classic Martin guitars. The series will welcome two new editions, the 000-18E and the D-35E, which will both enthrall guitarists with the seamless intersection of beautiful historical detail and Martin’s unique forward-thinking technology.
000-18E Retro: This new addition to the Retro series is based upon a beautiful 1940 14-fret 000-18 "donor" guitar from the Martin Museum collection with a 24.9" short scale that produces clear and expressive response for stage or studio use. With modern performance and playability, the 000-18E Retro offers the visual and tonal integrity of the mahogany auditorium guitars from the pre-war era. (MSRP US: $3,399)
