1970 Martin 018 Guitar(Serial No.: 264680) Excellent plus condition. These small body Martins have a volume much larger and all out of proportion to their body size, and they are super comfortable for just sitting on the couch and playing. This guitar was purchased from the original owner whose parents bought it for her new. The guitar features mahogany back and sides, a solid Sitka spruce top, and a rosewood fretboard and bridge. Frets are good and the neck was recently reset by luthier Jack Dillen in Ashville. Nut is 1 11/16 inch and scale length is 24.9 inches. The guitar plays like butter with a nice low action. If you look closly you can determine the guitar is not mint, but there are no repairs or noticible nicks or flaws. The original black pickguard is starting to curl up very slightly at the edges. Thats all I see. Good volume and tone from this 53 year old Martin. Comes with the original molded blue Martin hardshell case.
