Product Description

The Martin Custom Shop 000-18 VTS was designed exclusively for Empire Music by the Martin Guitars Custom Shop.

You will receive the exact Martin Custom Shop 000-18 VTS shown in this listing.  Serial number:  2211857

Featuring a spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top, this Martin Custom Shop 000-18 VTS sounds incredible.  The Vintage Tone System (VTS) is described by Martin Guitars as:

"The new Martin Vintage Tone System (VTS) uses a unique recipe that is based on the historic torrefaction system. VTS acts much like a time machine in which Martin can target certain time periods and age the top/braces to that era. This focused method allows Martin’s craftsmen and craftswomen to recreate not only the pleasing visual aesthetics of a vintage guitar, but also reproduce the special tones previously reserved for vintage instruments."

The Martin Custom Shop 000-18 VTS shares all of the traditional specifications of the 000-18 while adding the spectacular VTS Sitka Spruce Top with Gloss Natural Finish.
