1999 Martin 00-18SH
Even if you’re not a fan of English guitarist Steve Howe of Yes and Steve Howe Trio fame, you’ll want to to take a close look at this collaboration between the legendary prog-rocker and the venerable Martin Guitar Company.
Patterned after Howe’s original 1953 00-18, the guitar has a vintage vibe, thanks to its original-style rosette and inlays, sealed Kluson tuners, and tinted soundboard. The SH designation indicates that this is a unique model, with Howe’s signature inlaid at the 18th fret.
The sound? Distinctive, pure Martin. Est. $3,400-$4,500
