1949 Martin 0-18
1949 Martin 0-18 in excellent condition. We suspect this guitar was played very few hours since new. When we got it the neck was loose and it was unplayable. After a neck reset that required little more than reshimming and gluing it back in place it was whole again. The guitars appears to have been stored in damp conditions at some point in its life. There is some checking on the headstock and back that indicate this. Otherwise the finish is shiny original and in great shape overall. We set the neck to the original uncut saddle. The frets are original and have no wear. The original Kluson tuners are like new and bright. The sound is powerful and full. The tapered bracing adds a nice bass response to the balance. The neck is a full rounded profile with 1 11/16" nut width. One of the cleanest and most intact 0-18s around. Includes original soft case.
