We present an original 1967 C.F. Martin D-18. Made in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
This is maybe a more typical looking D-18, but this one has a lot of power and projection. It’s in stunning and super clean condition without any crack repairs at all. Very few random dings and scratches here and there. Overall, a great piece that is near impossible to find in that condition.
This model has mahogany back, sides, and neck. It has a nicer top than you’d expect – possibly Red Spruce or Englemann. Beautiful rosewood peghead overlay with C.F. Martin & Co decal logo at top. Original rosewood fingerboard and bridge. Graduated dot inlays in fingerboard.Frets show nearly no play-wear. Original bone nut and saddle. Tuners are original Grover “Patent Pending” Rotomatics.
This guitar has been well cared for. Never installed a strap button in the neck heel.
Comes with its original hardhard case with a newer handle.
Repairs that has been done by a professional Luthier:
- Original bridge has been sanded, so it has the perfect action and the best playability you can get.
- One crack repair on the side of the body.
