2012 Martin D-18GE Golden Era Custom Shop Guitar

(Serial No 1598424) Excellent condition with only a couple of tiny nicks keeping it from new. I bought this one from the original owner. Great sounding guitar built to be a faithful copy of the 1934 D18. This has a solid Adirondack red spruce top and scalloped 5/16" Golden Era bracing forward shifted closer to the soundhole. The combination of the two allows more vibration in the top giving more volume. The back and sides are sinker mahogany, which gives it great punch and clarity, assisting the powerful mids and highs. Has mahogany blocks with a dovetail neck joint. Has a 1 3/4" fossil ivory nut on the 30s style V-shaped neck with nickle Wavery tuners with butterbean knobs. Action is easy, frets are fine, neck set is good. Huge Martin sound in this one, perfect for flatpicking. The Martin Custom Shop build sheet is at the end of the images. Comes with the original hardshell case, also very clean.
