As its name suggests, the Custom VTS 00-18 features Martin's special VTS torrefaction system to give this modern guitar a real, broken in, vintage look and feel. With a Sitka spruce top and solid genuine mahogany body it produces plenty of clear, pristine tone that is evenly balanced across the fingerboard. Its 12-fret slotted peghead puts more downward pressure on the nut resulting in more volume and sustain.
Includes hardshell case.
Vintage Tone System
Martin's 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.
