Description

71501 – Beautifully seasoned Martin 000-18 with that classic woody mahogany warmth that is the signature sound of the prewar orchestra model. This one has many scratches on the back and sides and a moderate amount of playwear on the top but it’s architecturally sound and set up to play – especially fingerstyle. The Adi top has the prized fine grain throughout and is very responsive. Bridge plate and all bracing are original. Back of the neck is clean and without capo marks with the original Grover G-98 tuners. The nut width is 1 ¾” and string spacing at the bridge is a hair over 2 ¼”. I acquired the guitar through Bagnasco & Casati who represented it for a client. The frets look like theirs. I believe there is a perfect repro bridge which might be their work also. Mark Tossman did some additional fret milling, setup work and reglued some lose braces. It plays very smoothly up the neck with medium to low action with room to move either way. It’s one of those guitars where the sound comes from deep within the box with subtle overtones and balanced volume. Comes in a nearly new SCC (Superior Canadian Case) case that’s similar to a TKL.
