Martin, C.F.: USED D18

(Item ID: USED D18    Serial#: 254454)

Martin, C.F. USED D18 1969 Standard Series Dreadnought with Mahogany and Spruce

As with any guitar of this age, this D-18 has a few cosmetic flaws, but is in remarkable shape. There is a repaired pickguard crack and two very minor stress fractures in the neck along the fingerboard, extending from the nut, that have been repaired. The neck has been reset here in the shop and, due to minimal play over the years, the frets are in great shape. While the overall sound of this guitar is exactly what you would expect from a vintage Martin, it also has a firmness and focus that would make it an exceptional stage and studio tool. With incredible response and tone, this is a great example of a vintage instrument.

The Martin D-18 guitar is universally recognized as an American classic. What has made it iconic is its uncommon natural tonal balance, and its honest, direct and faithful voice. And, even though the this model has had structural changes over the years, the combination of its solid mahogany back and sides with a solid spruce top is a time tested mating that has proven tonally effective over and over again.


This guitar includes its original hardshell case.case. (used)
