From the family of the original owner, here is a beautiful Vintage 1946 Martin D-18 Mahogany Spruce guitar in Excellent Plus condition in a quality well fitting contemporary quality hardshell case. This instrument is in extraordinary condition with no cracks, issues, or heavy wear and presents as an amazing sounding resonant very loud guitar from Nazareth in the golden years of American guitar making.

Beautiful grained Spruce and tight Mahogany woods on the guitar with only some light play and handling wear present with some light pick scarring around the soundhole and light button trails on the back but no gouges or deep marks anywhere on the instrument. Also appears that a new spruce bridge plate has been professionally installed but the rest of the guitar is completely original and untouched. Tight braces and neck joint and the original saddle with fairly good height left to adjust the action as needed and she currently plays great with about 1/16" action at the 12th fret and clean playing up and down.

The real story here, however, is the crazy wonderful tone this guitar has. Very loud resonant and distinctive voice that just gets louder as you dig in with a wonderful woody overtones and this instrument just rings like a bell! Plays great too and the frets and fretboard in great shape and not badly scarred and worn like many of these older Martins.

In short, if you're looking for one of these late 1940's beauties, here's a super nice example with no issues that just plays and sound wonderfully!
