1953 Martin 000-18
1953 Martin 000-18 in very good condition. This is one of the so called mystery top guitars of 1953, some swear it is Adirondack other Engelmann spruce, we know it is not Sitka. It certainly has a different sound quality than the Sitka guitars of similar vintage. This one is warm and strong. The fundamental is pure with power and clarity on every string. 100% crack free guitar, top, back, sides, neck. Has had a neck reset and the angle is good with plenty of saddle in the original bridge. Original tuners, nut, pickguard, frets, finish. There is wear and dings all over it adds up to a charming 000 with great sound. These are some of the most versatile guitars around and still a steal on the vintage market. Includes newer hard shell case.
