1945 Martin D-18

Call
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...

1945 Martin D 18 that had been in a family for at least 50 years, it had been refinished in a almost yellow color ...that was dull and it needed a neck set in the worst way ....so enter Dave Gentner ...and I asked him to do it in a 1937 Sunburst finish as I knew this guitar was special !! And it is ....3.6lbs of tone heaven. Dave got the neck angle perfect, and the action is low all the way up...

Martin D-18

At Telluride Music Co., we are honored to be an authorized dealer of C.F. Martin guitars. Since Martin's introduction of the 14-fret dreadnought in 1934, few guitars have influenced how flat-tops are built and how we judge them as much as the D-18 (except perhaps the D-28). As Martin's production has expanded, the D-18 model has changed very little, and the most recent variation of the model...

Little did I know, sitting on my MeMaw's couch back in the 70's and watching old Andy Griffith reruns that I was being subjected to life lessons.

A timeless Martin D-18, from the 1950, shows a lot of playing wear but is structurally 100%. No noticeable cracks anywhere though a few tiny areas on the sides do show some minor incursions, inconsequential, especially in light of how it sounds, how it plays, and where it's been. Former property of Oliver Ray, longtime accompanist to Patti Smith, this guitar went on the road with them for years....

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

$12,500
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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
