1964 C.F. Martin D-18
We present an original 1964 C.F. Martin D-18. Made in Nazareth, PA.
The Martin D-18 has been a workhorse for country, gospel, folk, and other forms of American vernacular music. This 1964 C.F. Martin D-18 acoustic guitar is built at the old factory just before they moved the factory later in 1964.
The original Kluson Deluxe tuners are in perfect working order. It has the dreadnought body style with a spruce top w/ mahogany back and sides as well as a dark rosewood fingerboard, bridge and headstock overlay. Original pickguard and binding are tortoise celluloidon the typically rounded-edge headstock. It is way more lightly constructed than later ’60s examples.
Overall, this flat top is in great shape for its age. Typical play-wear, nicks, dings and other cosmetic wear. Sounds and plays absolutely fantastic.
Comes with a newer hardshell case. Latches and handle are in perfect working order.
