•     Based on the pre-war 1934, Martin D-18, the D-18 GE is a near faithful reproduction of the classic dreadnought Martin guitar that has inspired so many musicians, players, and many luthiers who have chosen to copy this iconic design.  This particular D-18 GE was made in 2010.  It is in mint condition with no dings, scratches, or flaws.  The guitar has tremendous volume and exceptional tone.  Set up with medium gauge strings, the neck is straight, the action is comfortable, and the guitar is a dream to play. 

    This guitar is in original condition with the following exceptions:   A K & K Pure Sound Acoustic Pickup with Volume Control has been professionally installed.  A strap button has been added at the neck heel.  The bridge pins have been upgraded from black plastic to what I believe are dark fossilized mammoth ivory with abalone dots.  The guitar includes a deluxe archtop Gibson hard case rather than the original Martin case.  Other then that the guitar appears as if it left the factory yesterday.
