Martin D-18 built in 1973. Includes K&K Pure Mini pickup (our favorite acoustic pickup system).

This guitar needed some TLC when it came in but we're really happy with how it turned out. This guitar has been used but not abused and will make a great stage-ready dreadnought for somebody who doesn't mind a few nicks and dings. It's got that classic D-18 sound: big and gutsy with lots of power. 

In addition to our standard cleaning, setup and restring, we repaired a back crack, re-glued the bridge, and gave it a thorough buffing. Structurally the guitar is in great condition. 

The top has a handful of dings and the rear lower bout and side region has moderate wear from buckle rash. In addition to what's visible in our pictures, there are numerous small depressions that we couldn't capture in the photo booth. 

Great action and neck relief. Some very minor divots in frets but they've got plenty of life left in them. No wear to fingerboard.

1-11/16" nut, 25.4" scale.

Includes original blue molded plastic hardshell case. It's missing the lid retaining strap but otherwise it's in good shape.
