1930 Martin 0-18


VG+, natural, first full year for the belly bridge. The back and sides of this guitar were refinished long ago (you’ll see some drips in the lacquer). But the top has its original finish and almost 90 years of age contributes to its open, airy tone. We did other repairs on this last year for a previous customer: rib crack, top crack, bridge plate replacement, new bridge, neck reset, bar fret dressing.
This fantastic guitar is huge-sounding and feather light (the ebony truss rod helps). As a pre-1938 Martin this has so many cool features – bar frets, wide board, 12-fret tone, scalloped forward-shifted braces. The refin helps keep the price down. The tone is beyond cool. With beat original case.
