Great deal for a player looking for a vintage Martin 000-18! This guitar has been "rode hard," as the parlance goes; but it's structurally solid with tone and mojo for days. The action is nice and low; and while there's no need for a neck set now, there isn't much saddle left to lower things further. Replaced tuners (originals are not with the guitar). There are several small cracks near the end wedge, which are stable if a bit unsightly. Martins from 1956 & 1957 have a distinctive look thanks to their "pepperoni" pattern pick guards -- and this one scores high in the vibe and sound columns. With modern hard case.
