1939 C.F. Martin 00-18

One of the Golden Era guitars, this 00-18 is and has been a real workhorse in it's life and sounds like it.  All original other than the perfectly replaced bridge (quite typical of this era)  with bags of playwear and a few healed cracks, it has the sound of ages.  Key to this era is the mahogany and red spruce body with ebony board and bridge.  Ebony and mahogany, once old, become as good as brazilian and ebony.  The differences become a plus for them both.  Sustain, harmonics, imagery and a fat swelling richness is the result and this one has them all.  Very played, very characterful and very satisfying to say the least.
