1957 Martin 5-18

by Luke the Drifter on January 6, 2011

1957 Martin 5-18 3/4 sized guitar. This model is generally associated with Marty Robbins and Martin has in fact reissued it as such. Designed as a Terz guitar with the intention of tuning it up a step and a half to G. Here’s a video of Bobbie Gentry picking “Ode to Billy Joe” on one on the Smothers Brothers’ show way back in the day. Very cool.
