1948 C.F. Martin D-18

This Martin D-18 is an exceptional instrument from all perspectives.  All original and in immaculate condition with a sound that is open, immediate, crisp and very powerful.  D-18's usuall are woody and very tactile, which is not a negative at all, but this example has the clarity of a brazilian D-28 and that is exceptional.  Classic 40's plummy pickguard, full height bridge, fully neck set and ready for the studio or stage, it's a gem of it's type and an exception compared to all.  Oh, and the number 2 just means it's the second one from this year that I have in keeps the computer running happy.
