1972 Martin D18 – £2199

NEW ARRIVAL  As 60’s Martins are becoming more expensive and harder to find, early 70’s equivalents are becoming the more affordable option. This guitar is 52 years old and wonderfully matured, with a richness and resonance so few newer guitars can even hope to come close to. With a Spruce top, and Mahogany back and sides the guitar produces very warm tones lending itself to strumming, yet is versatile enough to handle fingerstyle and flat picking very easily. The guitar has a very familiar feel, taking you back to classic 60’s and 70’s recordings, quite an unmistakeable sound. It is in good condition for it’s age, with lots of playwear, dings and scrapes, plus a repaired headstock crack. The guitar has an active B Band pickup fitted with tone and volume controls mounted inside the soundhole, and comes in a Hiscox flight case.
