$2,350.00

SOLD. Call us for options.

This 2012, used Martin 000-18 GE Golden Era 1937 is in Excellent condition and a great opportunity to get a fantastic guitar based on Martin's classic pre-war "Golden Era". Playing it is a real joy - like an 80-year-old instrument traveled through time unscathed. Made with a solid Adirondack Spruce top and solid Mahogany back and sides, it's unequivocally Martin, from the way it sounds to the way it plays. Warm and woody lows, round, bell-like highs, and clear mids make it an immensely versatile and responsive player. The slightly shorter scale (24 9/10") is great for blues tunes and bends, and it's just as great for folk and raucous bluegrass.

Here with a 1 3/4" nutwidth that's a great, comfy fit for most players, it has a long-style saddle with 2 5/16" string spacing, an Ebony 1930s-style belly bridge, and cool vintage style nickel open-geared tuners with oval buttons. Aesthetically modeled after the '37, it features an Old Style 18 rosette, Old Style 18 inlays on its Ebony fingerboard, and a Delmar tortoise-color pickguard. The neck is made from select Hardwood and has a comfortable Modified V shape with a 30s-style heel. The body has tortoise-color binding and a killer Brazilian Rosewood backstrip. Here in Excellent condition, it does have a minor finish only crack on its top near the fingerboard (see photo), but it's purely cosmetic. At only a couple years old, this Martin 000-18 GE Golden Era 1937 has many, many years ahead and will only sound better the more it's played. Included original hardshell case. Serial #1606671.
