This '53 Martin 0-18 features; the original individual open-back Kluson tuning machines with metal buttons, original tuner ferrules, the original tortoise pickguard, the original Brazilian Rosewood bridge with original saddle, original nut, original frets, and all original lacquer finish. The bridge pins have been replaced.

Recently re-strung with Pyramid .011s, the action is great, though some would consider it slightly high. It sounds particularly great, focused, and well-balanced. It has a cool quintessential small-bodied projection, which is sometimes best for recording. The neck profile is excellent, and the guitar is a real blast to play. This guitar does not includes a case, though it will be packed and shipped accordingly.

There is chipping around the soundhole form aggressive pick wear, serious amounts of scratching on the back of the body, a small puncture gouge on the lower bass side (near the bottom strap pin), and regular playing wear on the back of the mahogany neck. Incredibly, the top is perfectly flat, the bridge is secured tightly, and there ae no drying cracks anywhere on the top. The back looks quite distressed, yet surprisingly there are no cracks to be found there either. The neck joint is perfectly intact, and there are no neck nor headstock structural issues.
