Product Description

This Custom Shop Martin 000-18 features woods hand selected by Northeast Music Center Inc. Store Owner and in house luthier Jack Gretz. 

This guitar will be sporting a "Bearclaw" Sitka Spruce top with Quilted Mahogany back and sides.

"Bearclaw" Sitka spruce has a shallow, cross-grain curl that seems to increase cross-grain stiffness in acoustic guitars. Many luthiers feel that it enhances the tone and sustain of spruce. Strong, focused tone, a perfect match for flatpicking or Bluegrass style picking. 

Wild Grain East Indian Rosewood has a sporadic "wild" figuring to the wood grain that makes it stand out from your typical example of East Indian Rosewood. It makes for a "one of a kind" style to the guitar.
