1956 Martin 000-18
1956 Martin 000-18 in very good condition. There are few guitars more versatile and than the 000-18. Its combination of clarity and power along with balanced response works for many styles. This particular one is all original with the exception of a new bone saddle and recent neck reset. The back and sides are crack free and the finish shows normal wear from playing. The top has two nearly invisible top cracks both about three inches long near the bridge. Repaired here with hot hide glue they are tight and look like finish checks. The neck is a full rounded shape that is comfortable with 1 11/16" nut width and 24.9" scale. Clear bright trebles and lots of midrange are balanced nicely with a tight bass. Whether you are flat picking or playing fingerstyle it is satisfying to play. Includes newer hard case.
