1968 C.F. Martin D-18S (sold)
CITES Article 10 Certificate #552861/01
Such a rare, rare model. The Martin D-18 12-fret slothead acoustic guitar. Only recently has Martin realized what they had in their 12-fret instruments. The D-18S is one fingerpickers dream guitar. Sonorous, woody and full of fat, the sound these instruments produce is powerful yet extremely tactile and warm. Solid mahogany rims and back with a sitka spruce top, brazilian rosewood board and bridge.......the 12-fret arrangement just compliments all of these features. Less string tension makes it imminently playable and the wider 1 7/8ths neck makes it error free for the fingerpicker. I only wish they made more of them.
