C. F. Martin & Co / D-18 / 1969 / Guitar
Martin D-18 1969 – surely one of the nicest D-18 form the 60's we’ve ever come across – you rarely find such a powerful and dynamic sound!
As one of the original Dreadnoughts, the D-18 has captured the hearts of players since the early 1930s.
From Elvis to David Crosby, the D-18 has been in the hands of legendary players for decades.
Similar to the D-28 (without rosewood) this D-18 sounds incredibly warm and loud compared to many other dreadnought guitars.
The woods have opened up nicely and the guitar has a charming woody sound.
It combines in an incredible way a great dynamic and volume with the mild nuance that can only come from a great vintage guitar.
Everything that a lover of vintage guitars wants to have, he will get with this guitar.
This Martin D-18 is perfectly adjusted and plays very well with a low action and a straight neck.
The guitar is a player and it has a few repairs. It has a cool vintage look, that comes from play and use. A previous owner added a snow flake inlay to the fretboard on the forst fret.
All in all this is a rock soldid players grade guitar, with an amazing sound at an affordable price.
It comes with a non original case and a built in piezo pickup (brand unknown).
