Vintage 1941 Martin 00-18 Acoustic Guitar:
$1,375


1941 Martin 00-18, This is a very cool old guitar which plays okay as is, but really needs a neck reset. The saddle was filed down low so that there are grooves cutting into the bridge. If the saddle was the correct height the action would be way too high, as it is the action is a little bit high. Bridge is split and glued. At some point someone bolted the bridge to the top to keep it from lifting up, that's what the holes in the bridge were for. Neck seems pretty straight, acceptable anyway.
As you can see in the pictures there are significant cracks and damage on the sides. There are some cracks on the back and a few little ones on the top.
There is evidence of a non-original pick guard that was added to the upper bout above the fretboard and sound hole and some pick wear on both sides of fretboard, some of which extends all the way down beneath the far end of the original pick guard.
The Martin logo is completely gone from the headstock. Martin stamp inside guitar is still intact.
The lighter rectangular spot on the top next to the bridge is from a sticker which was removed, and a second rectangular sticker was removed from the lower bout of the top.
Overall this guitar is in pretty rough condition, but it has tons of potential. Like I said, it is playable right now if you like your action slightly high. A neck reset and new saddle will improve it a whole lot. Otherwise, this guitar would be very sweet if properly restored.
It is not very often that you will find a prewar Martin guitar on with and starting out at only $100. This is a rare opportunity, so offer on this cool old guitar now before someone else gets it.. Imagine all the amazing stories this vintage Martin could tell you if it could speak!
Ask questions if you have them. Have a nice day!
