This Beautiful and unique vintage D-18 has an unbelievably sweet sound that would really shine on recordings or live. As you can see, there are numerous dings and scratches i couldnt possibly take pictures of all of them. It has been well played. A rarity for sure and you can tell by the sound.
I dont have an explanation for the color of the top. The body is dark all over and although the martin logo is there it is hard to see. There are no loose brAces and the original small maple bridge plate is still in tact.Beautiful Brazilian fretboard and bridge. Neck has been reset and new frets recently. There is no fret wear. New compensated bone saddle and bone nut and a perfect setup was done. Old repairs on the back. There was an input jack on the side that was plugged. I posted a lot of pictures so please look through them i do have more pictures that i could not post.
