1926 Martin 018K Guitar
(Serial No. 24446) Excellent condition. These small body all Koa wood Martins are outstanding for fingerstyle, especially blues and ragtime. The guitar is 12 fret all koa construction, slotted peghead, original 1 3/4 inch nut, V profile neck, bar frets, and an ebony fretboard and bridge. Luthier Dave Sheppard reset the neck. The frets are dressed and the neck is straight. Its currently set up with Santa Cruz low tension steel strings. All original hardware and finish. Has a few small back cracks that have been glued up, and a few minor nicks and dings from a lifetime of playing music. This was no case queen - this ones been out making music! Very comfortable guitar to play, nice low action and has a big sound all out of proportion to the small size. Has the beat up but original hard case.
