2014 Martin D18 Guitar

Photo for Ad 133562

(Serial No. 1781054) Excellent near mint condition. I took this guitar in trade from a recording studio owner who was VERY particular about his tone. He would not have a guitar unless it had a big, open, powerful sound - and this one does. This is the classic D18 with a few modern refinements. Its mahogany back and sides, Sitka spruce top, rosewood fretboard and bridge, TORTOISE BINDING. Nothings new there. However, Martin has started advancing and scalloping the braces like the prewar guitars, and you can hear the difference. This guitar is clean - there might be a tiny ding, but you will have to look hard for it. The sound is fine enough to warrent use in a major recording studio. Here is a short video clip of this guitar played by luthier Richie Dotson of Acoustic Box LLC in Chesterfield, VA - Action is beautiful - nice and low. Looks almost new. Comes with the original Martin hardshell case. ...USD $1750
