Martin / D18 / 1970 / Natural / Guitar
As 60's Martins are becoming more expensive and harder to find, early 70's equivalents are becoming the more affordable option - and a 1970 D18 is tonally just as good. This guitar is 46 years old and wonderfully matured, with a richness and resonance so few newer guitars can even hope to come close to. This is a great example of one of those guitar you play and it sets your mind racing, because it just sounds so familiar, exactly like the acoustic sound you hear on so many classic 60's and 70's albums - it just has that wonderful tone. It is in very good condition, with a beautifully figured top which has turned a dark honey colour, and very few nicks or dings for a guitar of it's age. 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 playing very easily. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
