Description

Contemporary canon from the workbench of Bagnasco & Casati of Savona, IT, one of the finest shops building in the traditional prewar style today. This is a faithful reproduction/interpretation of a shade top 1936 Martin D-18 with all the signature features of that iconic guitar – forward-X scalloped bracing, ebony fretboard and bridge, rosewood headstock overlay, mahogany back and sides hot hide glue construction, and full-moon harvested Alpine spruce, the European equivalent of Adirondack. Top and back are bound with faux tortoiseshell, simple but elegant b/w trim and rosette. Plain headstock with repro Waverly machines. The neck captures the unique feel of the ’36; a modified V profile with slightly bigger shoulders than the more widely known ’37. The fit and finish of this build is impeccable, particularly the finish which Andreas calls their new “thin-skin”, a pure nitrocellulose. The tone is open and woody already with a nice round bass end, strong mids, and chiming trebles. The response to a pick is tremendous. Sustain all day. Condition is nearly new. On consignment.
