This is an early 40’s 018. One of the 475 built that year, the guitar features a classic combination of spruce and mahogany in a simple trim. The style 18 was listed in 1857 and has gone on to be a popular style. Built in ’43, this guitar has the sought after Adirondack or red spruce top.
The prior owner has this to say about the guitars “This beautiful 1943 Martin 0-18 is as spectacular as they come. It is completely original, with the exception of a meticulously performed neck reset and refret. The action is low and even and the tone is beyond expectation; intimate and inspiring. It shines for fingerstyling, as well as flatpicking. This is a prime example of the true golden era of Martin Guitars.”
