1968 Martin D18

SOLD  The D18 is the all American guitar. It’s the sound of Americana, the warm, laid back, melodic sound has been heard on countless recordings, and played by just about anyone who’s anyone. Finding a 60’s example is getting more difficult, and this one is a beauty. It’s mellow and warm, and really suits a lazy strumming sound, but dig in and there’s power there too – a true all rounder. It’s the classic Spruce / Mahogany dreadnought, with Rosewood fingerboard and bridge, clean lines and classic good looks. It’s unusual to find a 60’s D18 in such good condition with no cracks or repairs. It has the look of a guitar that\s been well played, but equally well looked after. The neck is comfortable and the action is just tight. The guitar comes in a non original but vintage hard case.
