1953 Martin D-18 (Adi Top, Ebony Rod Neck) $6600 Shipped

Photo for Ad 127947

sounds more musical/richer/woodier than any other 50's D-18 i have played. very lightweight bc of the ebony rod neck. only 100 D-18's were made with an ebony rod neck in 1953. you have to go back to '44 to find another with a nonsitka top/ebony rod combo. set up perfectly and doesn't need a thing. only selling bc i just bought a '43 D-18.

the guitar has been refretted and the neck reset by Frank Ford. I believe the bridge has been replaced as well. hairline pickguard crack that is nearly invisible and just the right amount of play wear. recent HSC.
