Title says it all. Kurt Cobain’s “Grandpa” was 1953 (#132933), Elvis Presley, Lester Flatt, they all heard something in a ‘53 ‘18.
This was the outcome of a 2 year, coast-to-coast search for the best sounding 50s D18 guitar in the USA. This guitar sounds like a dream, especially on the low/bass end, and might change your life as it did mine.
No top cracks! No B string crack! All original except tuners. Will NOT ship anywhere, but will meet or host in California.
Please contact to discuss particulars, or to make an offer. Auction on Ebaay starts soon, still no guitar like it available.
