Vintage 1948 Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar / Amazing Sounding Original Beauty For Sale

Vintage 1948 Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar / Amazing Sounding Original Beauty

Up for sale is my original vintage 1948 Martin D-18 Acoustic Guitar! The inside neck block is stamped with serial number 106516 which dates this D-18 to 1948. I am not an expert on vintage Martin guitars but I will try to describe this guitar to the best of my knowledge. The original finish appears to have not been touched up or oversprayed and black lights perfectly. I believe there are only 2 unrepaired cracks, one is the typical Martin between the high E string pickguard and bridge and a small back crack near the bottom edge by the binding, both of these can be seen in photos # 4 &12. They were both present since I've owned this guitar for the last 15 years and have never gotten worst or moved. The Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard is dark with what appears to be original frets in good shape with lots of life left. The period correct tuners are very clean and stay in tune, but I believe they may have been upgraded to closed back Kluson's instead of the open back Kluson octagonal plate tuners. The original pickguard is in great shape with no cracks or chips. As you can see from the photo the neck joint is original and appears that there has never been a neck reset. The action is good and plays nicely with a measurement of 3/16th of an inch from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the low E string. The original nitro finish has aged with a gorgeous golden patina with lots of lacquer checking and appears to be 100% original. Description: Great sounding, good playing Martin Dreadnaught with original pickguard, original ivory nut, appears to be original Brazilian Rosewood bridge although not certain. Maple bridge plate appears original. The sides appears to have no cracks. The finish is original, and shows the usual amount of pick wear, nicks and scratches accumulated from over 64 years of being played. This guitar has lots of volume, great sustain and the right amount of balance between the open deep bass and bright treble response. The nice thing about this guitar is the new owner will be able to have any desired work preformed by their choice of luthier instead of trying to fix someones else's poor repairs or work.A niceexample of this year D-18 like this one typically sell for $6000 to $8000 so take advantage of this sale! Also included with this Martin guitar is a TKL hardshell case in excellent condition with all latches, hinges and handle working properly with no issues.

I really hate to see this phenomenal1948 Martin D-18go but I need to fund another project. The new owner of this guitar will not be disappointed and will not want to puther down!
