Martin D-18 GE Guitar
With appointments from Martin’s Golden Era (1930-1940), the D-18 GE features genuine mahogany construction and is our most popular model in the series.
Imperial Guitar says:
We have been a Martin dealer forever and the D-18 GEs were clearly a cut above the Standard D-18s of its day, in tonal depth and complexity.This is an absolute beauty, plays smoothly and sounds great!
Original hard-shell case included.

*Please note: we do our best giving descriptions of used pieces. We have found it impossible to describe every mark on an instrument or amp that is not in the "mint" category. Also, what's important to you may not be important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well." Another person may say, "Body cosmetics are very important to me so tell me about every scratch, nick and blemish." So, please ask the questions that are most important to you. If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
