Martin D-18 (1957)
Vintage Martin D-18 from 1957.
In very good shape for its age. Super loud with nice tonal balance.
Like a lot of guitars of this vintage it has some wear and a few repairs.
Neck angle is still good and plays great with low action and 12-54 phosphor bronze strings. There is still some height left on the saddle for adjustments if needed. One top crack is slightly open but it is right by the pick guard and not moving. Original frets are in good shape, with enough life left for another fret dress. Sold with an era appropriate case.
- Bridge re-glue.
- Bridge screw holes filled.
- Repaired top and back cracks.
- Possible overspray on top and back.
This is a great player's grade instrument that has lots of life left in it.
