“C. F. Martin is proud to honor the rich musical legacy of Elizabeth Cotten with the introduction of the 00-18CTN Elizabeth Cotten limited edition guitar. The 00-18CTN closely approximates the 00-18 Martins produced during the pre-war era, considered by many to be among the finest recording instruments ever made. A commemorative freight train inlay in pearl adorns the octave fret, and Elizabeth Cotten’s signature is inlaid between the 19th and 20th frets. Each guitar will feature an interior label numbered in sequence and personally signed by Larry Ellis, Sr., Elizabeth Cotten’s grandson, and Martin Chairman and CEO, C.F. Martin IV.
The 00-18CTN Elizabeth Cotten limited edition model closely approximates the 00-18 Martins produced during the late 1930s and early 1940s, considered by many to be among the finest recording instruments ever made. Premium tonewoods are featured throughout: genuine mahogany back and sides and a bookmatched Sitka spruce top. These woods combine with the grand concert body, short 24.9-inch scale and hand-scalloped 1/4” top braces to give the 00-18CTN bright, balanced vintage tone. The size and scale also provide unmatched comfort and ease of playing.”
