1949 C.F. Martin 000-18

CITES Article 10 Certificate #553239/02

A well played example of the post-war Martin mahogany bodied guitar.  All original excluding the bridge, which is a very acceptable brazilian replacement, and with a voice that is really sublime. Very played in with lots of evidence of same, the backtones are sweet and fat, creating a beautiful cathedral-like sound.  It plays beautifully and needs nothing.  Original tortoise guard and open back octagonal tuners. (probably Klusons)  It has a few healed small hairline cracks but nothing to mention and the neck has a lovely D shaped radius that is very comfortable.  The back and neck have a light overspray that is hard to detect.

  It's always a treat to play these 1940's Martins.....they sure don't make them like they used to !!!
