1963 Martin D-18



Great condition 1963 Martin D-18! There is one small repaired side crack. Otherwise the guitar is crack free, with one minor patch on the side (see photo) where a pickup jack was previously installed. It has been slightly hot-rodded by the previous owner, namely having a compensated saddle installed, as well as replacing the original tuners with Waverlies. (It should be noted that the posts around which the strings are wound have been deliberately shortened, the idea being that this creates a sharper string angle over the nut which supposedly improves the tone.) Overall, this is a beautiful looking and sounding guitar. Comes with non-original Gator hard-shell case.
