1945 Martin D-18

$7,950
This early 1945 Martin D-18 (91211) has had a few previous repair procedures that put the price down into the "player plus" range. It has an evenly spaced Sitka spruce top, a steel T-bar neck reinforcement, a full neck profile, and radically tapered top bracing that all contribute to the characteristic very large and open basses, complex trebles, and loud voice that are the hallmark of the early...

1975 Martin D-18

$2,195
Clean all around. No cracks, but lots of finish checking. Low saddle, but action not too bad. On the edge of needing a neck reset, but if you like your action a little on the high side, you'll be fine! Comes with non-original hard case

1943 Martin D-18

$17,500
This extremely bold sounding early 1943 D-18 (83225) is in very fine shape, save for two previous repaired large back cracks (4" and 7"). The heavy grain lines on the Adirondack spruce top read as nicely stiff to me and the bright, complex treble tones confirm the visuals. The finish shows moderate crazing, especially on the neck and sides, typical of many 1943 and most 1944 Martin 18 style...

If a wimpy Dreadnaught is what you want, look elsewhere. This has got to be the bestest, the most robust and strongest sounding Martin D-18 to come down the pike in years. And years. It sounds CLEAR and HUGE and oh so fine; with the first chord you'll feel like the air has just been sucked out of your lungs. Been in the hands of one owner since new, traveled around the world on tour more times...

1946 Martin D-18

$4,650
Here’s a very cool 1946 Martin D-18. The Martin D-18 was introduced in 1931 and has been in production ever since. It features the D-style Dreadnought body with Honduran Mahogany back, sides and neck, Sitka spruce top and ebony fingerboard and bridge. This 1946 Martin D-18 guitar is very resonant with sparkling trebles and full, warm bass and midrange and sounds just wonderful. It’s also...

1941 Martin D-18

$22,500
This healthy and well-presented mid-1941 Martin D-18 (78705) is typically very powerful in all ranges and particularly complex in the upper midrange and trebles due to the steel T-bar in the neck and the stiff Adirondack spruce top found on most 1941 Martin Ds. The finish surfaces are bright and almost entirely intact. There is only a small pair of of glued 3" side cracks down near the treble...

1948 Martin D-18

$12,000
Smashingly great-sounding 1948 Martin D-18, that will easily hold its own with an earlier 1940's scalloped-braced D-18 in a jam. This is also an exceptionally clean guitar, in all-original condition, bearing only two well-repaired cracks (and the standard issue pickguard crack). When it came to us, newer Waverly tuners were on the guitar; but we've re-installed the originals, which work...

1941 Martin D-18

$22,500
This very early 1941 Martin D-18 (76965) has all of the good stuff that I like in the best of the 1941 D-18s that I have played. The voice is bold and forceful, the tone is very colorful and balanced with a solid bass and shining trebles, and the neck is fast and slim. Except for a very small hairline crack in the lower bout side near the tail, there are no other cracks on the guitar. Due to a...

1941 Martin D-18

$14,000
A pre-war Martin canon, as it should be. From early in 1941 and with no top cracks, quite unusual. Spectacular action (with ebony fingerboard and bridge) to match the spectacular sound. Rock solid too, with a few repairs done years ago. Neck reset quite nicely; replaced bridge a bit oversize, ditto bridge plate; reinforcing plate and one replaced brace under the fingerboard area of the top; a few...

One of only 575 made that year, this consignment late 1941 Martin D-18 (79480) has a very simple description. It is by far the cleanest and most original prewar D-18 that I have ever had in the shop. The low E string bridge pin has been changed, a neck reset and refret were performed by T.J. Thompson, and a strap button has been added to the treble side of the neck heel. That's it! As we would...

A wonderful pre-war "players" dreadnought! This guitar has some "issues", but none of them detract from its amazing sound and playability. The guitar has been entirely refinished/oversprayed. In addition, the bridge and tuners have been replaced. The tuners are "vintage" Waverlys, which are distressed in order to look old. They look great on this guitar. There is also one long top crack, which...
