This vintage 1947 Martin 0-18 is an absolute stellar sounding instrument. The sound of this Martin is just stunning. One of the best small bodied vintage guitars we've ever heard. The German spruce top, with its complex harmony and extra-clearness, was only used for a limited time in the 1940s and early 1950s. The back and sides are made of high quality mahogany. It is well aged and perfectly balanced, with present mids, crystal clear highs and thumping basses (amazing what comes out of this little body). The small 0 body gives the sound a warm, round nuance and a great projection. It was, as you can see, played and loved. The playability is very good, and is an overall solid instrument. The neck was re set what looks like a very long time ago and done incredibly well. The frets are low but in very god shape with lots of life still left in them.
Includes the original gator chipboard case.
