Retrofret Stock # 6258. C. F. Martin 000-18 Model Flat Top Acoustic Guitar (1967), made in Nazareth, PA, serial # 226996, natural lacquer finish, mahogany back and sides, spruce top; mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, black alligator hard shell case. Overall length is 39 3/4 in. (101 cm.), 15 1/4 in. (38.7 cm.) wide at lower bout, and 4 1/8 in. (10.5 cm.) in depth at side, taken at the end block. This nearly 50-year-old guitar remains in very fine cosmetic and structural condition-the only alteration is some very nicely executed raised engraving on the pickguard reading "Love Wilma-1972 James C. Hargis 25th anniversary". Neither of these individuals appear to have ever played this guitar much at all; it shows only the most minor signs of use. No cracks or repairs except a slight re-seal to the center seam at the outside edge, nothing needed; a lovely player with a nicely balanced sound. Overall Excellent + Condition.
