SOLD. Call us for options.

This used, 2004 Martin D-18 GE Golden Era acoustic guitar is a modern recreation of the legendary 14-fret dread that inspired countless artists through the decades. With the pre-war Golden Era of guitars in mind, it features the construction, materials, and appointments of the originals. By offering plenty of volume without sacrificing the impeccable tone, it's one of the best-sounding guitars for flatpickers and fingerstyle players alike. The D-18 is a workhorse regardless of the styles of music you play. The top is made from solid Adirondack Spruce with solid Mahogany for the back and sides. It also has a great Modified V neck that's both incredibly comfortable and spacious with its 1 3/4" nut width and 2 5/16" string spacing.

The scalloped X bracing helps provide beautiful resonance, and being ten years old, this guitar has already opened up nicely, so that aged tone is yours right away. Here in Excellent condition, it does have some very minimal wear to it, though most noticeable is a small scuff on the middle of its back (see photo) - but that doesn't affect how amazing it sounds or its playability in the slightest. It also has a beautiful Ebony replacement endpin. From the vintage style butterbean tuners to its beautiful finish, this Martin D-18 GE Golden Era guitar is a dynamic player built for a lifetime of playing. Includes the original Martin hardshell case too.
