This Martin Custom Shop 000-18 Adirondack/Sinker Mahogany is built with incredible craftsmanship and constructed from the finest materials. She features a natural full gloss finish, providing a pleasing look to complement the elegance of the nicely grained Adirondack Red Spruce and Sinker Mahogany. Sinker Mahogany is Mahogany cut down in the late 1800’s in Belize (Central America) and meant to float down the rivers to the Caribean coast for export. Many of these large, old growth trees did not make it either sinking or stuck in the mud. Instead of rotting away, some of these were buried in the sediment in a time capsule that aged the wood but did not rot it. So you are getting 100+ year cured Mahogany.
Some of the tonal descriptions for Cuban mahogany may be applied to the Sinker Mahogany. The complexity and overtones for sinker mahogany may contribute to a guitar with wonderful clarity with added warmth and fullness as well.This Custom Shop 000-18 guitar is a tone machine, perfect for any style acoustic guitarist.
