While the 5-18 Marty Robbins
Custom Edition conforms to the model’s 12-fret (to the body) design, small
dimensions (11 1/4” across the lower bout) and short (21.4”) scale length,
distinctive tonewoods and appointments abound. A rare Adirondack
spruce top with 1/4” unscalloped braces is matched to the traditional genuine
mahogany back and sides for bright, clear tone and impressive dynamics. The
“low oval” genuine mahogany neck sports a polished Madagascar rosewood
headplate which highlights the large Old Style gold Martin decal and Gotoh™
nickel open geared tuners with butterbean knobs.
To honor “El Paso” and his other Texas-themed records, the black ebony fingerboard features a position marker in the shape of Texas at the 5th fret and a lone star at the 7th fret, plus the standard Old Style 18 dot position marker at the 9th, 12th and 15th frets, all inlaid in abalone pearl. The matching black ebony straight bridge is fitted with a “through” saddle of genuine bone, the nut also is crafted from genuine bone.
Top, back and sides of the 5-18 Marty Robbins Custom Edition are tortoise bound; the top is accented by five-ply black/white edge purfling and an Old Style 18 rosette. The beveled and polished pickguard is Delmar™ tortoise-color nitrate, as is the endpiece, while the heelcap is tortoise-brown to match the binding. Traditional dark stain on the back, sides and neck combine with straw aging toner on the top to give the guitar vintage beauty y, a beauty y accentuated by its polished gloss lacquer finish. Each Martin 5-18 Marty Robbins Custom Edition guitar bears an interior label personally signed by Marty Robbins’ son Ronny Robbins and is numbered in sequence. A fitted hard shell case is included.
