Description

The first Martin D-18 Authentic 1939 Aged model we received has just come back to the shop on trade! It remains in exactly the same condition it was in when it left the shop the first time (although who'd really be able to tell if it had picked up another scratch or two?). This is still a head-turner of an example of this model -- warm and full, loud and balanced, dry and open, with a tremendous bass response for a "new" guitar. The setup favors a flat picker, with a small amount of relief in the neck, and action a hair over 3/32" at the 12th fret under tension of medium strings (yes, it lends itself to bluegrass rather nicely). With its original hard case from Martin.
