Santa Cruz is thoroughly represented in television, film and top 40 hits of most genres by first call session aces. The celebrity front man usually sports an instrument on stage that is supplied by the brand with the biggest artist relations budget. But when it comes to their recordings, only the best guitar and player will do. Santa Cruz has provided the top studio professionals with style specific customizations for decades. The FireFly concept: Current technology has allowed artists to lay down tracks from remote locations creating a need for a sophisticated guitar that travels well and still delivers a professional performance. Some impartial observations from Guitar Player Magazine: “I’ve never reviewed a guitar that caused so many people to utter some variation on the phrase, “This might be the best guitar I’ve played in my life.” “This isn’t just the best small bodied guitar that I’ve played in years – this is one of the best guitars I’ve ever played period.”
This is how the legendary pre-war Martin 00-18's looked, felt, and most importantly, sounded. Meticulously based on a 1931 model in the famed Martin museum, this guitar is handmade in the custom shop the same as they were back then.
Specs include an Adirondack top & bracing, genuine Mahogany back & sides and Madagascan Rosewood binding.
Martin's vintage tone system (VTS) and hide glue construction throughout gives this model a stunning tone that belies it's small-body stature. An absolute masterpiece, this is the first and only 00-18 Authentic in Australia.

Wow has this been worth the wait. Lowden make acoustic guitars that sound like no other and we think they are the bees knees. This is from the famous original series and is the fantastic Medium sizes 'F' Flatpicking model. The smaller soundbox shape produces more projection and midrange than the 'O' making it perfect for flat pickers, but it has also found it's way into the hands of finger style players, blues guitarists, and others. This guitar has the classic combination of Cedar soundboard, and Walnut back and sides and a Factory fitted LR Baggs Anthem pickup system. A true delight for the eyes and ears. Comes in an English Lowden branded flight case.View full product details
