1951 C.F. Martin 5-18
CITES Article 10 Certificate #553673/01
The Little Tyke !! I've really grown to love these small Martins. With everyone obsessed with this sound or that, the 5-18 brings to your ears a very different thing altogether. Sweet, simple yet sophisticated and quite mature, they are very relevant to the pantheon of Martin guitars.
All solid mahogany rims and back with a sitka spruce top, mahogany neck and brazilian rosewood board and bridge, single tone bar and X-braced, they are mini-dreads. The sound they produce is more than one would expect and mimic a larger 0 or 00 with a bit less power. This one is all original and is already wired for the stage.....quite irresistable.
