1964 Martin D18 Guitar

(Serial No. 195036) Excellent plus condition. This is the classic Martin D18 - solid mahogany back and sides and a solid spruce top. Tuners are the correct Klusons. Luthier wizard Frank Finoccio replaced the original non-adjustable truss rod with an adjustable rod, reset the neck, and probably replaced the fingerboard at that time. Tortoise binding and pickguard and has the small maple bridge plate. Shows some playing wear next to the bridge and buckle wear on the back and but overall a clean guitar. A couple of short dryness cracks were repaired on the side. This one has that solid Martin "boom" you need in a good bluegrass guitar. Neck is straight, neck set is fine and it plays great with a nice low action. This is one of the good ones. Comes with a newer hardshell case.
