Description

Absolutely wonderful 1957 Martin D-18 acoustic guitar in its original natural finish. This one is such a joy to play! It’s particularly light, very articulate and is unsurprisingly loud. Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides and a Brazilian Rosewood fretboard. Great projection and a killer mid-range to cut through the mix. Overall in very good and well played condition. Lots of honest play wear on the top, finish checking, dings/dents. Bridge has a crack that could use some attention, but is unmoving and has no affect on playability. Bridge pins and tuners are non-original, one small repaired top crack. Tuners are the same footprint as the originals, so no extra holes. Comes with a modern hard shell case.
