1958 C.F. Martin D-18
Second time around in this gallery, this great '58 D-18 is a real powerhouse. It always happens when they are played this much. The build stress relaxes, the wood loosens up and the sound pours out of these old Martins. Lots of playwear but nothing dangerous, all original and just back from a fret job and health check with Dave. So it's good for the forseable future. Sound wise: warm, woody and crisp. Lots of power and sustain along with that lovely resonance you always get with old Martins. Just a really sweet, well played example from the Martin stable.
