Up for sale is a stunning 1946 Martin D-18 in its original natural finish. This instrument was purchased from Gruhn a few years ago and has repairs notes from them a professionally refret and a replacement bridge and bridge plate. There is evidence the neck has been reset in its life and there are two repaired cracks on the top underneath the bridge. The finish blacklights correctly and looks exactly how you would expect however there is a faint sheen on the face of the body leading us to believe at some point the face of the guitar may have had a light clear over-spray. Overall an excellent sounding and very lively old Martin! Pro setup in house and comes complete with a vintage Lifton hard case.  Weight: 3lbs. 11oz.


We want you to be happy with your purchase and we try to represent the condition of all used and vintage products as accurately as possible in our listings.  Every used guitar shows some signs of play wear and vintage models even more so.  We call out all areas of damage or unusual wear, and describe the overall condition based upon what is "normal" for the age of the instrument.  Expect to see minor dings, finish checking, or other evidence of normal use and aging which may not be captured by photography or explicitly mentioned in the listing. 

We recognize that everyone has their own personal standard of what constitutes acceptable wear and tear.  If play wear is especially critical for you, please contact us at the Shop for a complete in-hand description and to answer any questions you may have.  Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.
