1944 Martin D-18 Sunburst Guitar

$ 12,900.00

Vintage 1944 C.F.Martin D-18 Guitar

  • Really handsome sunburst on this vintage Martin guitar
  • Mahogany back & sides
  • Adirondack spruce top under a  handsome sunburst
  • The best part of all though, is the tone.  It is that vintage, dry, colorful sound  that we all imagine a great Dreadnought will produce. This guitar does it in spades!
  • When we received this guitar, we sent it to master luthier, Bill Tippin to repair some cracks. He repaired them all, and replaced the already, non original bridge because it too, was cracked. It now has a period correct Ebony bridge with bone "through" saddle.
  • He noted that the guitar had been re-topped at some point, and said whomever performed the work did an amazing job.
  • The guitar has some light overspray on the back & sides
  • The bridge plate has been replaced as well
  • Bill worked hard to remove the milkiness that was in the pickguard
  • This guitar has replacement Waverly tuning machines
  • Ebony fretboard with dot position markers
  • Faux tortoiseshell body bindings & pickguard
  • New, Calton flight case (wine) included
  • Condition: Very Good
  • Frets to Body: 14
  • Scale Length: 25.25"
  • Nut Width:1 21/32"
  • Saddle spacing: 2 1/8"
